Description

The great blue lobelia produces a gorgeous and intense shade of blue that only a few blues can match

 The Great Blue Lobelia (Lobelia siphilitica) makes an excellent late summer bloomer in shade gardens. Its showy bright blue flowers are in the axils of leafy bracts and form an elongated cluster on a leafy stem. Each flower is split into two lips - the upper lip has two segments, and the lower lip has three.

Great Blue Lobelia is a showy, upright perennial that adds unusual color to the late summer garden.

The erect, 2-3 ft., stems produce lavender blue, tubular flowers crowded together at the upper stem. Great Blue Lobelia performs best in the partial shade of woodland gardens after the danger of frost passes. Hardy in Zones 3 - 9.

A native of east-central North America, Great Blue Lobelia is a showy perennial with erect stems usually unbranched. Each stem produces loose clusters of tubular flowers in varying shades and combinations of lavender, blue, rose, and white. Lobelia siphilitica is the State Flower of Rhode Island and a much-loved plant in woodland gardens everywhere since it blooms at the end of summer when other natives are scarce. A close relative, Lobelia cardinalis (the Cardinal Flower), has red flowers open from late morning into the evening. Both species are excellent bee plants that will attract hummingbirds if planted with native coneflowers such as Echinacea or Rudbeckia.

Great Blue Lobelia, like other Lobelias, is a beautiful perennial for the wildflower garden. The stems are smooth and mostly straight, with small leaves in opposite pairs and slightly hairy. The flowers are shaped like bells. The color is sky-blue, blooming in late summer to early fall and persisting until frost.

Great Blue Lobelia is a lovely native American wildflower

 Introduced into Europe by John Bartram in 1783. It is often multibranched. You'll enjoy its blue blooms in your lovely graden. A member of the Campanulaceae family, the genus Lobelia comprises approximately 400 species distributed primarily throughout tropical regions of Africa, Asia, Australia, and North America.
