Dense Blue Spikes of Great Blue Lobelia

  • Long-Lasting Bright Blue Blooms
  • Looks Great Along Edges
  • Expect Blooms Through Mid-Autumn
  • A Pollinator Favorite

The Great Blue Lobelia (Lobelia siphilitica 'Great Blue'), is a hardy Cardinal Flower bearing tall, leafy spikes of clear blue flowers. These spikes make it the perfect back row plant in your perennial flower beds

Great Blue is a clump-forming perennial with upright leafy stems. It blooms from late summer to mid-autumn, and it bears dense spikes of light to bright blue tubular, two-lipped flowers with a more prominent lower lip; long-lasting blooms.

This perky perennial was made for your backyard pollinator gardens. It'll attract a plethora of curious butterflies and the tubular flowers might even have a hummingbird visitor or two.

Of course they can also be used near the back of your property to soften the woodland edges or use at the base of a water feature you've installed. No matter where you plant Great Blue, it'll look absolutely stunning.

The tall flower spikes can be clipped and bright indoors to complete a delightful bouquet. Place them in the kitchen or on the living room coffee table to freshen up your space.

This Cardinal Flower prefers deep, moist soil and should be fertilized every two weeks in spring and early summer to improve flowering. Plants may be trimmed as they die back in hot summers.

Oh let us count the ways you can use this wonderful wildflower. Fron front entryways to backyard patios, you'll want to order a Great Blue Lobelia quickly before they're all gone!
