    Cool plant grows fast

    Grows very fast looks great on the sides of rocks or wood. Mine didn’t have any purple so I can’t review on it turning colors or not.


    Very pleased with look

    Lovely Lobelia

    All of the plants I ordered arrived a little later than projected but where still in good shape. The lobelia all had nice, healthy looking leaves with variegated colors. All have been planted and so far are doing okay 3 days later.
