Description
Lobelia erinus compacta 'Snowball' creates a shimmer of gleaming white flowers in summer, with an occasional touch of pale blue. The dark green, finely cut foliage contrasts beautifully with the snowy blooms. This neat, compact variety has a bushy habit making it a fine edging plant for borders and pathways, particularly when partnered with darker cultivars. Also makes an excellent choice for filling patio containers. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 20cm (8").

Sowing

Sow lobelia from late winter to mid spring on the surface of a good seed compost and gently firm down. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 18-24C (65-75F) or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the soil damp but not wet. Do not exclude light as this aids germination which usually takes 14-21 days.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When lobelia plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in full sun or semi-shade on moist, fertile, well drained soil at a distance of 10cm (4") apart.

More Info
Feed and water lobelia plants frequently throughout the summer to promote an endless supply of delicate lobelia flowers. Caution: Contact with the white sap may irritate the skin and eyes.
