Lobelia 'Starship Blue'

We have grown the traditional cardinal flower and great blue lobelia for years but Starship Blue is metaphorically out of this world!  The clean, deep green foliage gives way to the tall blooming stalks full of rich color in mid-summer.  Just like the species that make up it's genetic background this hybrid thrives in heat and humidity.  Plant alongside a pond or stream for a neat reflective display, add to the mid-perennial border, or grow in containers.   A favorite of butterflies and the occasional hummingbird.
