Additional Information

Attractive to bees and butterflies. Great for borders and containers. During winter, protect Lobelia with a thick and dry layer of mulch. Whilst the plants are young, pinch back the tips to keep the plants bushy and cut back by a .5 after the first major flowering. All parts if ingested cause severe discomfort. Propagate by division in spring. Hardy perennial.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
