Blue Lobelia

Description
Want hummingbird visitors to your garden? Plant the Blue Lobelia! Its beautiful blue flowers typically bloom in late summer, which means not only will hummingbirds enjoy it on their way south for the winter, but so will plenty of butterflies! It grows quickly once established in full sun or partial shade, especially in moist soils. The strong stems can grow up to 3' tall, and feature lance-shaped, slightly toothed leaves. The 2-lipped flowers grow from a terminal spike with two petals on top and three on the bottom, all in vibrant blue-purple. Add to bouquets and vases for a pop of brilliant color. Lobelia siphilitica

The type of product you order or the weather in our area or yours may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible. Large orders may be shipped in more than one package.

Bare-root perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and success in your garden. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window.
In all cases, we choose the fastest, most efficient way to send your order.

For trees and other oversize items, we do not ship to PO boxes and it will be delivered via FedEx Home delivery.
