There is (Lobelia erinus 'Riviera Blue Eyes') noted in the database.

I have Lobelia erinus, but it is named simply Blue Eyes on the seedling tag. Do I need to add this wording specifically somehow/connect the two?

Or, perhaps I can assume that both are the same and can go add my image to the current Riviera Blue Eyes page?

Thanks anyone.

Carole, It's possible that yours might be the one in the Riviera series Lobelia (Lobelia erinus 'Riviera Blue Eyes') Can you inquire at the nursery where you purchased the plants?

When googling I found this place selling "Blue Eyes Lobelia Seeds", listed as Lobelia erinus but in the description it refers to the name of Riviera Blue Eyes https://www.2bseeds.com/produc... but The same place also has a listing for Lobelia Palace Blue Eye Seeds but no photo and not much of a description: https://www.2bseeds.com/lobeli...

If you can't find the exact identity of yours, you can always upload photos to the general entry that covers all Lobelia

Hello @carolem and @plantladylin.

I just found the photo which shows parts of the name of the Lobelia 'Riviera Blue Eyes', and have now put two photos in the Database. Hope this helps.

@HemNorth thanks Nora; I ended up adding my photos to the generic Lobelia.
