One of the best sources of color for the cool-season container garden, Fountain Blue offers larger, earlier blooms than most other Lobelia varieties. You will love the floriferous nature of this cascading plant, which tumbles over the sides of hanging baskets, window boxes, and other containers!
The azure-blue flowers arise among rich green leaves on this zealous little plant. Expect the first, heaviest flush before spring is out, with a possible repeat if the flowers are cut back promptly. Fountain Blue often rests during the heat of the summer, but will also flower in fall in most climates!
Give this plant full sun in the north, a bit of shade in the south or far west. It reaches 10 to 12 inches tall and about 6 inches wide, with a neat, rounded habit and 1/2-inch blooms. Superb for the annual bed as well as containers of all types!
Fountain Blue is a great improvement over earlier Lobelia varieties. Make this fine performer a mainstay of your cool-season flower display, and you will not be disappointed! Packet is 100 seeds.
