The Q&A Archives: Lobelia Planting Confusion....

Question: Hello!
I just received 6 lobelia ruby slippers from you. On the tags with the plants it says they can be planted in partial shade to full sun. However, on your web site, it says that they need full shade.

Which is it??

Answer: Lobelia erinus, the annual, grows in full shade. Lobelia hybria 'Ruby Slippers', is a perennial and will grow in partial shade to full sun. Hope this clears up the confusion!
