Thank you, 3d! It's a chance combination as I had no idea what colour the Lobelias would be. They came from self-sown seedlings that survived the winter on the balcony. As I had no idea what the seedlings were in late autumn, after planting up my 3 small troughs, that sit on the bar that runs around the middle of the balcony railings, I left them. Then in the spring, when they started to grow, I finally recognized them & left them alone till I had to empty out the troughs to put in my summer flowering plants - these busy Lizzies! I replanted the seedlings around the edges of all 3 troughs after planting them all with the same colour Busy Lizzies. Almostall of them have turned out to be varying shades of blue while a very few truned out to be white!

Well even thought you had not a clue which colour Lobelia came up its worked out well and looks great.
