April 29 2014
Grown at Hutchinson Farm since
1990's. Available May 2017, in 4½" pots,

Looking for a blue flower? Lobelia is about as
blue as you can get. We grow the Regatta series
and Techno series which are profuse bloomers, and
range in colour from deep sapphire blue to light
blue. The regattas can be divided, as each pot has
Winter Hardiness: Annual
Light Requirements: Full sun - bright shade
Where to plant: Containers
Height: 4 - 6"
Trails: 10 - 12"
Best suited as a trailer in containers and
hanging baskets. Avoid hot areas of your garden,
as Lobelia, especially the Regattas, can stop
blooming if they get too hot. Fertilize lightly.
Trailing Regatta Series
Techno Heat Series
Best heat tolerance (often lobelia doesn't
flower mid-summer because it can't take the heat,
but this heat series is the best).
