The Q&A Archives: Planting Lobelias

Question: What is the best way to plant lobelias and how do I keep them blue?

Answer: Lobelia is one of those popular and dependable border plants with a trailing habit that will fill an area rapidly. Lobelia likes moist, rich soil, and will self-sow in your mild winter region, becoming almost perennial. The plants will produce tiny blue flowers almost continuously from spring through fall, with no special care from you. Just keep the plants well-watered, stand back and enjoy.
