Russian Princess Lobelia

Description
An altogether beautiful plant, Russian Princess bears bold magenta-pink flowers atop low mounds of rich burgundy foliage all summer long. Makes a dramatic addition to a perennial bed or sunny border. They look amazing when planted en masse, or even in smaller groups of threes or fives. Alternatively, plant this lobelia variety in a decorative container for a textural mixed display that can easily be moved around the landscape. Plus, because lobelia likes to get their feet wet, they do very well in waterside plantings. Blooms are funnel-shaped, making them highly attractive to pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds. Prefers full to partly sunny spaces. Easy to grow and maintain in average to moist soil with a moderate growth rate. Lobelia speciosa 'Russian Princess'

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible. If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.

Bareroot perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and provides your new plant with the best opportunity for success in your garden.

Trees and other oversize items cannot be shipped to PO boxes.

After you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation with the details of your order and a delivery estimate. You will also receive an email notification when your order ships with an updated arrival estimate and tracking information.

At any time after you place your order you can check your order status on our website using your email or the account number found in your order confirmation email.

Please note that we cannot ship outside of the 48 contiguous states.
