Lobelia excelsa Devils TobaccoLobelia excelsa Devils Tobacco

From Chile, this rare and exotic giant Lobelia amazingly blooms its socks off Spring thru Fall. Thriving in both inland heat and coastal fog, it’s easy and 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 and size. Rich soil! Hardy to 15° F.
