    Jazz up summer hanging baskets and windowboxes with this impressive trailing lobelia. The flowers are an intense shade of magenta-purple, and to say they appear in profusion would be an understatement! They look spectacular when planted with rich blues, purples, pinks and silver too.

    Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 5 - 7cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They are ideal for keen gardeners who have a greenhouse where the plants can be grown on until they are ready for planting out in the garden once all chance of frost has passed.

See above for despatch dates for this particular plant. To ensure that your plants arrive in the best possible condition each pack will be despatched individually.
