Lobelia cardinalis ‘Black Truffle’ ppaf         Black Truffle Cardinal Flower       Zone: 5-8     if moist,

Lobelia cardinalis ‘Black Truffle’ ppaf         Black Truffle Cardinal FlowerWell, you just can't beat the red color of a cardinal flower, so why try!  Work on the foliage instead!  'Black Truffle' has dramatic, dark chocolate-purple foliage which really sets off the bloom to perfection.  AND it is far superior to the other dark foliage Lobelias in the trade, holding it's deep color through the season.  Introduced by Peter Heus and brought to market via Plants Nouveau.

Lobelia chinensis  (L. radicans)   Groundcover Chinese Lobelia         Zone: 6-9

Lobelia chinensisWhile most Lobelias are Native to the US, the little cutie is a groundcover Lobelia from China!  It has miniature leaves topped ALL SUMMER with equally miniature pink blooms.  Would be expected to spread 36" in a year so it's a good spreader but so tiny, it won't hurt anything!

What you're saying about us... Absolutely amazing is my best description of my first order receipt ever from you. I got home least night, and found the USPS man had delivered a box of live plants that actually had prearranged "holes" in the box. You're the first one I've ever seen do it. Then, I opened the box, and the plants looked fresh enough to make a salad. They looked like I had purchased them at a local nursery and simply driven them home from across town. My compliments, too, on the reminder instructions, and in particular "unless you're particularly adept at watering qt. pots." ...I am 110% satisfied.

Lobelia x 'Ruby Slippers'   'Ruby Slippers' Cardinal Flower    Zone: 3-9       

A T.V. Star! Featured on The Victory Garden, this ruby-garnet beauty glows in its velvety jewel-tones. Longer blooming season than most Lobelias.

What you're saying about us... I recently received my order, and was delighted at the quality/health of the plants and the manner in which they were packed. This was the first time that I have ordered from Lazy S’S, and would not hesitate to do it again, and would certainly recommend you to others. I hesitate at doing mail order with live plants, but I was unable to find the Lespedeza ‘Yakashima’ variety around here. The ‘Postman Alert’ was very helpful and worked well for me.                                                                Mary Beth, Northford, CT  04-04-06
