A full colour mixture of pinks, reds, purples, white, blues and lilac that tumbles out of containers and hanging baskets.
As the name suggests, Cascade Mixture has a full colour range of pinks, reds, purples, white, blues and lilac that will tumble out of containers and hanging baskets. Germination is sometimes slow but by being patient, the gardener will be rewarded with an eye-catching, multi-coloured spectacle. Growing your own Cascade Mixture is recommended as this colour range of lobelia is seldom seen in garden centres. In areas with a hot summer, we suggest growing lobelia in semi-shaded sites rather than in full sun.
