Lobelia, Great Blue (Lobelia siphilitica), packet of 100 seeds, organic

$2.95

Family: Lobelia (Lobeliaceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 9

Herbaceous perennial.  Rivals in its beauty the most pampered of hybrids, yet it is a long-lived, native American perennial.  I’ve seen them growing wild in Meigs County, Ohio, in a moist, semi-shaded ditch.  Among the Fox, the finely-chopped roots were shared and eaten by a couple to avert divorce and renew love.  Lobelias prefer part to full sun, rich, moist soil, much water.  Short-lived seed.  Light-dependent germinators.  Sow seed in spring or fall.  Sprinkle seed on surface, tamp securely and keep evenly moist until germination.  Average germ time in warm soils is 1 to 3 weeks.  Water very gently.  Space plants 1 to 2 feet apart.  Flowers vibrant light blue to 2 feet.

100 seeds per packet, Certified Organically Grown
