Lobelia Mrs. Clibran

Lobelia Mrs. ClibranSun to part shade.  4 inches tall 6 inch spread.  Deep true blue flowers with a white eye.  Very useful in containers as it will spill over the edges.  This lobelia has green foliage which is absolutely covered in blossoms.  Lobelia resents drying out and can be difficult to bring back if it is allowed to wilt.  If wilting does occur it is best to bottom water the plant.  Never douse a lobelia with water if it has wilted!  If bottom watering is not possible, water a little at a time, repeating as needed.  Plant is best sited where it will get shade from the noonday summer sun.  Prefers moist well drained soil.
