Lobelia elongata

Blue lobelia

Lobelia elongata is a flowering plant native to the southeastern coastal plain, predominantly from Delaware to Georgia. It is naturally found in wetland habitats, and grows well in full sun to deep shade. It can grow up to four feet tall in the growing season, and dies back almost completely in the winter. Leaving dormant stems up throughout the winter provides necessary over-wintering habitat for pollinators. Tall stalks of bluish purple flowers bloom in the summer and attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinators. Songbirds eat the seeds in the fall and winter. Lobelia elongata is great for restoration projects, stormwater plantings, or as a specimen plant in a yard or rain garden.
