Great blue lobelia (Lobelia siphilitica) blue cardinal flower starter plant (dormant)


Great blue lobelia Lobelia siphilitica blue cardinal flower starter plant. This plant likes medium to moist areas in sunny to partially sunny areas. I see it near tree lines in moist meadows. Beautiful blueish flowers in late summers loved by pollinators and hummingbirds.

These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Plants continue to grow roots without foliage. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. These are grown outside here in Michigan. These keep a small amount of foliage at the base throughout the winter. Lightly cover the foliage with leaves or pine needles to protect this foliage but not heavy mulch. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!

All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed ..
