This vegetative Lobelia has been bred to be more heat-tolerant than most others and is one of the best! Outstanding for hanging baskets, planters or flower beds. Does well in sun or shade. Once established, the lobelia plant requires little maintenance. During hot, dry periods, care of lobelia requires that the plant should receive frequent watering, however, especially those in containers. A general-purpose liquid fertilizer can be given once a month or every four to six weeks.
