We suggest growing our divisions in 9cm pots indoors under glass for a few weeks( slugs and snails often destroy very young plants in the border).If these are pinched out to make them branch when a couple of inches high they can give a spectacular show in the first summer, assuming good feeding and watering. 


Lobelia 'Russian Princess' is a stunning lobelia forming a  clump of deep burgundy-purple foliage. Tall spikes are produced in late summer

bearing wands of the brightest imaginable magenta-pink blooms. Excellent in containers, moist borders or can be grown in ponds.

In spring, lift and divide every two to three years. Best to lift or cover roots with leaves in winter as they can succumb to cold in severe years.Slug caviar but well worth protecting.

Foliage: Deciduous

Height: 75-90cm in 2-5 years

Spread: 30-45cm
