What's Blooming In Winter



Crystal Palace lobelia blooms almost all year around here, and although it's considered an annual, the way it reseeds, it may as well be a perennial. The foliage will be mostly green to begin with, but will turn a mellow maroon as the plant matures. It pairs up nicely with daffodils and irises, as when the bulb foliage starts to die back, the clumping lobelia will help fill in empty spots in your flower border.

Lobelia only grows here as an annual and we dare not put it out until all danger of frost is past.
