Lusciously showy, this tropicalesque Lobelia, is native to Chile & puts on its flower show July through October, with long, 18” spikes of brick-red to almost scarlet 2.5” flowers. The flowers aren’t the only groovy thing going on with this plant. Lance shaped, pale green, plush leaves contrast beautifully on purple-red stems. A unique specimen for well drained soil. To 5’x3’. Hardy to 10 degrees.
