Plant Finder: about Lobelia ‘Bees Flame’

Common names

Lobelia

Description

Lobelia ‘Bees Flame’ (Lobelia). This a clump-forming slightly hairy perennial with reddish purple stems and linear lance-shaped, reddish purple leaves. In mid- and late summer it produces racemes of tubular, 2-lipped bright crimson flowers.

Cultivation

These frost-hardy to somewhat frost-tender plants are best grown in well-drained, moist, light loam, enriched with animal manure or compost. They have a minimum temperature of 5C. Most grow in sun or part-shade but resent wet conditions in winter. Prune after the first flush of flowers to encourage repeat flowering, and fertilize weekly with a liquid manure during the season. Transplant from late autumn until early spring. In cold areas some perennials and shrubs are therefore best lifted in autumn and placed in well-drained compost in frames.

Interest and use

Grown for their flowers. Some are suitable for wild gardens or by the waterside. Suitable for coastal conditions.
