Scarlet LobeliaStarship Scarlet Lobelia have butterfly-shaped, deep red blooms on almost black stems with dark green foliage. These bright beauties will attract butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden from mid summer to mid fall. The columnar habit is great for adding height to the landscape or container. It’s narrow habit and proliferous blooming packs a lot of color into small spaces.

Starship Scarlet Lobelia can grow in a variety of conditions. They do well near streams or ponds, in partly shaded areas and even in dry conditions once established. No matter where you put them, they will blast off with color.
