How to Grow
Pot up Lobelia plug plants and grow them on in cool, frost free conditions. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions before planting out in their final positions. Grow Lobelia x speciosa in sun or semi-shade on reliably moist, fertile soil. This species copes well with poorly drained soils.
