This hot new hybrid tetraploid seed strain boasts fuzzy lobelia foliage (great for closet plant fondlers) all the way up the stems, ending in a stalk of very large brilliant scarlet red flowers (RHS 45B). The late summer flowers often last into the fall, especially when cut back after the initial flowering...WOW!
