With the recent enormous increase in the use of hanging baskets and the fact that the trailing Lobelia is just about the basic plant in filling them, the ?Fountains? Series has been specially bred to provide larger flowers supported by broader-leaved foliage to give a more generous use of the container. ?Crimson Fountains? produces an abundance of deep red flowers with a central white eye over dark green-bronze foliage.

Early flowering and floriferous, Lobelia erinus pendula is a fast-growing trailing variety which gracefully cascade over the sides of hanging baskets and window boxes, or add a touch of casual elegance to formal container plantings.

  • Sow lobelia from late winter to mid spring on the surface of a good seed compost and gently firm down. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 18-24C (65-75F) or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the soil damp but not wet. Do not exclude light as this aids germination which usually takes 14-21 days.

  • When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When lobelia plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in full sun or semi-shade on moist, fertile, well drained soil at a distance of 10cm (4") apart.

Feed and water lobelia plants frequently throughout the summer to promote an endless supply of delicate lobelia flowers. 


Suitable for the garden, allotments and containers.

Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
