Lobelia laxiflora subsp angustifolia - 2011 (Lobelia laxiflora var angustifolia)

The books say this is a bit tender - I don't think it's noticed we had a bad winter!

Lovely!
So mine should be ok in an unheated greenhouse then?
Has yours ever set viable seed? Sorry about the questions.

I've not noticed any. But as they are native to Arizona, our summers are probably not hot enough

I decided to check the not very promising remnants of the flowers, and a few gave up some seeds . I promptly sowed them and they started germinating within four days!
