Lobelia excelsa


The champagne is on ice for this poor blighter, who recently has been flowering its socks off! Unfortunately all of this colourful drama has been taking place in the Glasshouse, our propagation site, and far away from the limelight and admiring glances of our visitors! Here it is being grown on ahead of planting out next year when, rest assured, Lobelia excelsa will be given a chance to shine and the Red Border pot displays will echo to the sound of popping corks!

Choice plant, Bertie. Lovely colours. Shame it could not be more widely viewed.

Oh Bertie, you lucky chap!!! Just dropped by via the Bok Flock. Being an historian and a gardener I'd love to swap places. Will be back, Alison

Dear Bertie, I bet the birds, bees and butterflies will be happy when you put that beauty outside next year! P. x
