From our English trip, via Ireland, comes this hybrid of our great native. L. 'Pink Elephant' took my breath, I wasn't crushed to death, but when a 7' tall bright pink flowered (RHS 57D) lobelia with a stem as thick as my wrist comes charging at me...I take notice...WOW! Not only did we take notice, we took the plant. After two years of propagation, we are ready to share!
