Great Blue Lobelia provides outstanding, brilliant true-blue flowers for the border, wet meadow, woodland or pond edge. The blue coloring is unusual and is especially striking as it comes into season at the same time as yellow asters. The flower spikes attract butterflies, hummingbirds and neighbors to your garden! If in a happy situation, plants will self-sow.
