Laguna White Lobelia (Lobelia ‘Laguna White’)
Laguna White Lobelia
This fast-growing Lobelia offers a prolific bloom on fine, green foliage…and maintains its colorful appeal from spring through fall. Laguna White features delicate texture with white, 3-lobed tubular flowers on the ends of trailing stems. The vibrant green of the stems and foliage are a lively backdrop for the blooms that attract butterflies and other pollinators, as well as provide an enduring show of floral beauty for your yard. Whether you choose to display your Laguna White suspended from your front porch or allow it to trail over your rock garden, it’s certain to provide a scintillating, long-blooming show.
Your Laguna White Lobelia is an herbaceous, flowering plant that will grow up to 10 inches in height with a similar spread. It has a mounded, cascading nature. It doesn’t require any special care, but you can sheer it back if you’d like a more manicured appearance. Laguna White is a perennial (zones 9-11), but often grown as an annual (in zones 3-8). It does wonderfully as a stand-alone specimen, but really shines when used in planters or hanging baskets.
This newer type of Lobelia is in the Proven Winners series and is certainly “proven” to be an ideal plant for many homes. It’s more heat tolerant than other varieties, grows quickly, blooms prolifically and is carefree. What more could you ask for in a long-blooming, show-stopper for your yard this summer!
