Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Lobelia x speciosa 'Fan Scarlet' is a particularly striking choice from the ‘Fan’ series. From late summer into autumn, the narrow scarlet petals form tall flower spikes, on well branched dark bronze-green foliage. This contrasts perfectly with the vibrant flower colour and gives an exotic feel. Generally grown as a biennial, Lobelia x speciosa 'Fan Scarlet' thrives in a moist, somewhat boggy soil and suits being planted at the edge of ponds and streams. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 23cm (9").

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.
