Using ecology to restore land and water
Blue lobelia is a short lived perennial with many tubular blue flowers crowded along the stalks. It has stout, leafy stems and shallow fibrous roots. It is similar to Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis) but shorter and packed with more flowers that are blue instead of red. It can tolerate light shade and occasional flooding. Blue lobelia is found in swamps, wet meadows and wet woods.
