    The flower colour of this relatively new lobelia is what makes it so noteworthy, as the flaring petal lobes are a soft blush, hile the throat of the tube is a bright shade of fuchsia. It's a strong-growing plant with an upright habit, and the flowers will provide colour from midsummer to early autumn. It's a classic for the cottage garden or herbaceous border.

  • Garden care: Divide large clumps of plants every second year in spring. Protect the crown of the plant during winter with a thick, dry mulch, such as straw.

  • Harmful if eaten
