Description How to Grow Delivery

If purple is your favourite colour, you’re going to adore Lobelia 'Hadspen Purple'. It’s difficult to describe or photograph the sumptuousness of this particular shade of purple, which is enriched by the way the velvety texture of the petals reflects light.

Tall racemes, up to 60cm high, rise proudly above basal rosettes of lance-shaped, bronzy leaves, displaying vivid, royal-purple, 3-lipped flowers. A stunning perennial, especially planted in groups, creating bold, upright accents in borders. Flowering from July to September, it injects rich colour into the late summer garden. Highly attractive to pollinators. Height: 60cm (24in). Spread: 45cm (18in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Lobelia syphilitica resents dry soil. Plant in deep, fertile, reliably moist soil in sun or partial shade selecting a position where the soil does not dry out in the summer. Protect from slugs. After flowering, cut down the faded flower spike, this will help the plant to overwinter successfully. Divide over-crowded clumps every 2-3 years in spring.
