Lobelia × speciosa ‘Russian Princess’


Hybrid Lobelia

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.328.040


Similar to our native Cardinal Flower, this selection of Lobelia forms a low mound of deep burgundy-purple foliage. Taller spikes are produced in midsummer, bearing wands of screaming magenta-pink blooms. A magnet for hummingbirds. Excellent in containers, moist borders or at the waterside. Not always long-lived, but always dramatic.
