Lobelia is a trailing warm weather annual and tender perennial, native to South Africa. From spring until fall, the Techno Series produces masses of delicate flowers on trailing, well-branched stems with narrow dark-green foliage. Traditional Lobelia tends to die back during hot weather and re-blooms as the weather gets cooler, but the Techno Series has been bred to withstand the hottest summer temperatures and continue in nonstop blooming. Lobelia is most desired for its delicate, ever blooming colors, heat tolerance, low maintenance requirements, and mounding habit.
This variety grows upright dark green foliage then covers itself with a multitude of delicate blue blossoms.
