Lobelia excelsaLobelia excelsa

From Chile, this rare & exotic giant Lobelia amazingly blooms its socks off Spring thru Fall. Thriving in both inland heat & coastal fog, it’s easy & fast growing, forming a 5’ x 5’ shrub with whorls of linear, evergreen foliage topped with showy, 10”, firework clusters of
orange-red, 3” tubular flowers. An exciting focal plant for a dry garden, expect lots of hummers! Can be pruned heavily to control shape & size. Rich soil!
Hardy to 15° F.
