Plant Description

The Great Blue Lobelia, like its cousin Cardinal Flower, is a perennial species preferring sun or partial shade and a moist location. Blooming also in late summer, it has 1 1/2- to 3- foot spikes of deep blue flowers. Several plants of the blue and red Lobelias grown side by side in rich soil form a lovely color combination. Stems of Great Blue Lobelia do well as cut flowers.
