Trailing Lobelia

Lobelia Techno Heat Electric Blue grows a deep green foliage then fills its stems with dainty, bright blue blooms that blend beautifully in mixed containers and dramatically drape over edges. The mounding, semi-trailing (unless named UPRIGHT, of course) growth habit and colorful blooms makes this a fantastic choice for landscape, baskets and containers! Its blooms are just above the foliage and bloom all through early Spring and Summer. Lobelia is desired most for their delicate, ever-blooming colors, heat tolerance, low maintenance and mounding, semi-trailing growth habit for landscape, beds, baskets and containers. This is a great annual for early Spring - Summer. They mature to about 6-10” and about 10-16” wide, with the Upright Lobelia maturing closer to about 16-20” and near 10-14” wide.

& Maintenance Tips

The Lobelia prefers sun but can handle some shade, while the Techno Series is considered to be drought resistant. Lobelia grows best in average, well drained soil. These delicate blossoms don’t need to be deadheaded. Please remember, these pretties may need a little extra TLC and more consistent watering, especially when in containers!
