From Germany's Benary Seed Company comes another in a series of tetraploid lobelia hybrids, this one with a nice medium bluish pink flower (RHS 58B). The hairy foliage makes a rosette thru the winter and into late spring, when the flower spike pushes upward to 36" by mid summer. The flowers then open for a show that will last (including reblooms) until frost.
