This hybrid of Mexico's Lobelia fulgens is a stunning specimen with very hairy dark reddish purple foliage to 30" tall. In late summer, the plants are topped with equally hairy ruby red flowers (RHS 61A)...great for some late season color. All lobelias prefer a moist site...this one would also prefer electrolysis.
