Lobelia Crystal Palace HEIRLOOM Seeds

Lobelia erinus

Item #1024

Annual. Crystal Palace lobelia's compact masses of intensly rich, dark blue flowers are charming in containers, window boxes, borders or baskets. The leaves are bronze-tipped in partial shade, but the bronze intensifies in full sun. The pretty foliage is hard to spy because of all the flowers which bloom from spring to fall. In mild winter areas, lobelia will grow and bloom during the winter. Under ideal growing conditions, lobelia will reseed.
