#1026  Lobelia siphillitica
Great Blue Lobelia
Perennial/ Zone 4-9/ Height 24-36"/ Space 18"/ Sun, part shade/ Blooms summer
Despite its somewhat unfortunate name owing to its past use in the treatment of disease, this plant is a beautiful addition to any shade garden. Sturdy upright stems are crowded with clusters of blue flowers. As with all Lobelias, steady moisture is a must as is fertile ground. Protect with a winter mulch.
