This is a fabulous perennial and is suited to all sorts of situations from full sun to almost full shade. The flowers are identical to bedding lobelia only larger. ''Queen Victoria'' has beautriful bronze/red stems and vibrant scarlet-red flowers. This wonderful, hardy perennial will grow anywhere except the driest sites. The flower stems are produced from mid-summer to a height of around 90cm. After flowering new growth is produced from the base of the plant. Multiplies well. A must-have!
