Lobelia speciosa 'Starship Deep Rose'

Lobelia

The Starship series of lobelia are a new introduction, prized for their erect, sturdy, free flowering form. 

'Starship Deep Rose' is a voluptuous shade of deep pink whilst 'Starship Scarlet' is a vibrant pillar box red. Both have marvellous bronzy foliage. 

Stunningly attractive, they provide impressive displays of colour particularly in containers where they will flower all summer long. 

They require a rich, fertile reliably moist soil in sun or partial shade and can be grown in a shallow bog garden where they will need slug protection. A tender perennial so move to a frost free area for winter and cover with a thick mulch.
