Its moderate size and trailing habit make it ideal for containers and hanging baskets, while its partial shade needs make it low-maintenance. The Lobelia makes an excellent choice for bedding and borders. It requires a good, fertile, moist soil to promote blooming well into the season. No pruning is necessary, although trimming and deadheading in midsummer can help promote healthier growth.

The open blooms boast a clove-like scent, as well as rich nectar and heavy pollen - perfect pollinator attractors!
