Lucia 'Dark Blue'

Butterfly like blue flowers smother the plant for many months. Flower colour is the brightest of brilliant blue.
Lucia Dark Blue is a must have for its heat tolerance, excellent habit and great flower colour.
Location is the key to success with Lobelias. They need a well draining garden bed or container in full sun to part shade for some of the day. Keep the soils evenly moist and mulch to conserve moisture and keep the soil cooler. Once plants are established a regular but diluted liquid feeding programme every two weeks or so is beneficial. Insect pests and other diseases are not a serious problem. A light prune when plants are beginning to look a bit sad together with an application of a balanced fertilizer will promote new growth and another crop of flowers.
