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 a sheltered position in sun or semi-shade on reliably moist, fertile soil. Lobeliacardinalis copes well with boggy soils and can be planted at the edge of ponds and streams.

Dainty, deep blue flowers, the personification of the summer garden. Ball-shaped, very dwarf, compact plants. Primarily for edging or contrasting with another flower like alyssum but a group or bed can be a very effective foil to bright colours in sunshine. Useful for hanging baskets too. Flowers late spring to first frosts. Hgt. 4in.
A hardy perennial quite different from bedding lobelia, this variety has earned the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. Bright scarlet flowers are produced throughout late summer over bronze foliage. Growing up to 90cm (36 inchs) tall it can also be used as a cut flower and is best when planted in a group. Supplied in approx 3 litre containers.
