Blue Lobelia 3 For $14.99 Description


Blue Lobelia (Lobelia siphilitica)




Blue Lobelia: Lobelia siphilitica, or blue lobelia, is a striking and hardy perennial wildflower with true-blue flowers that blossom in the late summer.




Blue lobelia is native to North America, Europe, and Asia. It is well-suited to moderate climates, loves the partial or full sun, and is relatively easy to grow. You'll need to de-compact the soil, add fertilizer or compost twice a year (early spring and fall), and keep it well-watered. Other than those basic maintenance tasks, the blue lobelia will ask nothing more from you.




Common names for blue lobelia you might also recognize are these:




  •      Blue cardinal flower
  •      Great blue lobelia
  •      Great lobelia




Where to Plant the BlueLobelia Plant




TN Nursery recommends blue lobelia for filtered sunny gardens in cool to moderate temperatures. Here are a few ideas of where you might put blue cardinal flowers to use:




  •      Perennial garden border
  •      Natural area
  •      Well-drained, sunny banks of a pond or water garden
  •      In containers or pots
  •      In an urban garden setting--it adds stunning blue color
  •      Pollinator garden or butterfly garden (the blossoms attract bees, butterflies, moths, and hummingbirds




The Color-infused Beauty of Blue Lobelia




The blue cardinal flower has light- to medium-green, lightly-toothed, alternating lance-shaped leaves. Each leaf measures up to five inches long. Because the plants grow in clumps, the gathered foliage is dense, even when the flowers are not in bloom.




The flowers grow in elongated, attractive clusters at the top of the green, stalky, unbranched stem that reaches as much as three feet high. The blue flowers have two lips, each with three lobes which give the species its name. Flowers have a tubular shape that hummingbirds find delightful.




The flowers blossom in the later part of the summer.
