Planting Of Lebelia 'ruby Slippers' - Knowledgebase Question

Frankfort, IN
Question by woodruffs
May 19, 2001
I received my Ruby Slippers and am about to plant them and the tag in with the plants says to plant the flowers in full sun/ part shade. On your online directions it says to plant them in the shade. I need to know which area I should be planting them.

Thank You

In its native habitat, lobelia often grows in low lying meadows where there is very wet soil and full sun. In the drier soil of a flower bed, and in a hot summer climate, they may appreciate afternoon shade. You may want to experiment a bit and see where they do best for you.
