Lobelia spicata (Pale-Spiked Lobelia) [30 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, partly because they are very tiny and partly because they require a chilling period. The easiest approach is to surface-sow the seeds in a pot in mid fall to mid winter and leave it outdoors for germination in spring.

If you sow after January, there may not be adequate time for natural chilling outdoors, so give the pot an artificial chilling period of about 2 months.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Pale-spiked lobelia (Lobelia spicata) looks much like a scaled-down version of cardinal flower (L. cardinalis), but with white to pale blue flowers instead of brilliant red. This elegant, summer-blooming species usually tops out at around 2 feet, with the slender, upright, unbranched stem rising from a low, deep green rosette. Native to most of the eastern half of North America, it commonly grows in meadows but can adapt to life in a border. Full sun to partial shade; average to dryish soil. Perennial; Zones 3 or 4 to 9.

Collected in late September 2022. At least 30 extremely small seeds. Ecotype unknown.
