An altogether beautiful plant, Russian Princess bears bold magenta-pink flowers atop low mounds of rich burgundy foliage all summer long. Makes a dramatic addition to a perennial bed or sunny border. They look amazing when planted en masse, or even in smaller groups of threes or fives. Alternatively, plant this lobelia variety in a decorative container for a textural mixed display that can easily be moved around the landscape. Plus, because lobelia likes to get their feet wet, they do very well in waterside plantings. Blooms are funnel-shaped, making them highly attractive to pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds. Prefers full to partly sunny spaces. Easy to grow and maintain in average to moist soil with a moderate growth rate. 3" pot. Lobelia speciosa 'Russian Princess'
