Lobelia Love

I have never grown lobelia before this year, but I am head over heals in love with it.


I planted a six pack of them in this basket a few weeks ago


and they just keep blooming and blooming.


How come I never knew about these little gems before?

Linking with My Romantic Home's Show and Tell Friday.

  1. Very pretty!!! I had some white lobelia in a pot that I planted a month or so ago with some pink double impatiens, but for some reason the lobelia died. I don't know why; it usually does really well. I love the vivid color of your blues!

  4. Beautiful basket of blooms! I did these a couple of years ago and loved them! I found mine at a new green house just south of town, but had not seen them at walmart before!
    I need to do them again.

  5. Oh I agree, it is wonderful. I love it. It grows here in the spring, winter and fall, but dies in the summer. Mine just bit the dust. Hugs, Marty

  10. I love the perky bright blue color. I seem to kill it quickly however. Probably water it too much.

  13. I love lobelia! I really like how you have them in a basket. I have always planted them with other flowers in my urns. I think I will copy your idea. They are stunning all alone!

  15. I absolutely love your lobelia basket. I've never used it before but did see some at the garden center last week. I may just have to go back and see if any is left. Love how it spills over the basket. It looks so inviting on the steps.
    Hope you have a great Sunday,

  18. SO pretty! I've always seen lobelia in hanging baskets, but never tried it either. And I do LOVE any blue flowers! Let us know how it does the rest of the summer. I'll have to remember it for next year!

  19. Love your basket. Our color theme on the porch is red yellow and blue, Lobelia works so well in our porch boxes. It's a must for every garden...a great pop of blue.
