Maintenance Notes: 

Self cleaning, no deadheading necessary. Laguna does not like "wet feet". Be sure that you do not keep the soil wet. Allow the soil surface to dry before watering again.

These newer types of Lobelia are much more heat tolerant than past plants. They will reliably bloom in warm temperatures unless night temperatures stay in the upper 70's or above. If you experience an extended time period with high night temperatures the plants may flush out of bloom, however, the plants themselves should continue to look good. If the plants do go out of flower using a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears to give the plants a "haircut" - a slight overall trim - should encourage additional branching. Additional branching will result in increased flower power once the plants begin blooming again after night temperatures fall.

The plants may be trimmed back at anytime if you feel they could use it.

A yearly application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

Bred to take the summer heat better than typical lobelias, Laguna varieties are compact yet full, semi-upright plants covered in true blue or white, self-cleaning blossoms. Choose which color you prefer when you buy. They are ideal low maintenance plants for hanging baskets, window boxes, combination containers, and landscapes.

This beautiful blue Lobelia fits perfectly into the Proven Winners collection, with its large blue flowers accented with a bright white eye. Bred in the Netherlands, Laguna is an outstanding plant for all summer flowering performance. This Lobelia works well as a great mixed container plant although it has the color and habit that allow it to stand alone as a specimen. Lobelias are known for their tolerance of both heat and cold and Lobelia Laguna offers unstoppable garden performance.

  • I had great hopes for this new lobelia (I love lovelia) but the Arizona sun did it before summer was even half over.

    Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.

  • I purchase one of these every year--just ensure that you don't let it totally dry out. Beautiful in hanging basket.
