True blue flowers can be difficult to find in nature but Lobelia are true, real blue. This lobelia has better heat tolerance than older varieties.

Self cleaning, no deadheading necessary. Does not like "wet feet".

These newer types of Lobelia are much more heat tolerant than past plants. They will reliably bloom in warm temperatures unless night temperatures stay in the upper 70's or above. The plants may be trimmed back at anytime if you feel they could use it.
