Lobelia speciosa ''Starship Blue''
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. This variety forms a basal clump (ground level) of beauitful green foliage and sturdy stems packed with large blue flowers with good branching habit. This wonderful, hardy perennial will grow anywhere except the driest sites. The flower stems are produced from early summer to a height of around 60cm (slightly shorter than L. syphilitica ''Blue''). After flowering new growth is produced from the base of the plant. Multiplies well. A must-have! 60cm (when flowering) x 30cm approximately.
