Growing up to 2m (6ft) high and as wide, this perennial has large felted light grey-green leaves and impressive flower spike covered in hooked red blooms, which are a particular favourite of humming birds. Given a sunny site with excellent drainage and room to grow, this lobelia will make an impact in any garden.

This large perennial is not what most people expect when they hear the name ‘Lobelia’, but once you see it growing you will not forget it.

For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Sow seed in containers of sterilized seed starting medium in spring. Use of gentle bottom heat will assist with germination. Grow on in any good very well drained, reliably moist soil in full sun or partial shade.
