Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Offering uniquely variegated bicoloured flowers, the Rift Series represents a landmark in Lobelia breeding. Striking up close but equally dramatic from afar, Lobelia 'Rift Blue' boasts pure white flowers streaked with soft blue. The mounded, bushy plants are ideal for containers and hanging baskets, triumphing over summer heat to produce masses of flowers all season and into autumn. Height and spread: 20-30cm (8-12in).

When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise lobelia plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days before transplanting them into their final containers in any, well drained soil, in a sunny or semi-shaded position.
Feed and water lobelia plants frequently throughout the summer to promote an endless supply of delicate lobelia flowers. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
