Grow Lobelia in a sheltered position in sun or semi-shade on reliably moist, fertile soil. Lobelia speciosa copes well with boggy soils and can be planted at the edge of ponds and streams.
Cut back old lobelia foliage in autumn and apply a dry mulch of bark chips or straw to protect the crown of the plant during winter. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.
