Cascade Mixture Multi-Coloured Lobelia Seeds 5585. Open Pollinated. Annual.
Approx. 500 seeds/pkt (35,000 seeds/gram)
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. Grows 15-30 cm in height. 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.
How to Grow
Lobelia is best started indoors. Sow 8 weeks early, uncovered on the surface of the soil-less growing medium. Moisten by misting or bottom watering. Keep at 24 C (75 F) for the 20-25 day germination period then grow-on under lights at a cooler temperature of 15 C (60 F). Harden off and transplant outside to a partially shaded site after the danger of frost has passed.
