Blue edging lobelia, also known as garden or trailing lobelia (Lobelia erinus) is a beautiful and universal plant that blooms all summer long. It reaches only 10-15 cm in height and forms compact, round bushes that are adorned with tiny, numerous, vividly blue flowers. Small tufts covered with a sea of blue blooms look great on flower lawns, border edgings and can fill empty spaces between other plants. Lobelias can also be arranged in pot and box compositions.
Lobelia seeds available in our store should be sown in early spring. Seeds need to be sown into boxes indoors. Regular, moderate watering is of essence. After a few weeks seedlings are prickled out to pots or to seeding trays. Seedlings can be transplanted after 10 to 12 weeks. We transfer them to the garden in May, after the last frosts. Lobelias tolerate sun, but we need to supply them with plenty of water so they do not dry out. They will grow in even lesser soil, that should be moist and well drained. You should remove wiltered flowers in order to maintain proper growth and exuberant blooming.
