USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information
This is the blue-flowered species in the famous wild lobelia family. This one is a grand 3 to 5' plant that quickly forms attractive colonies in light woodland or other shady spots. (Allow the flowers to drop their seeds in fall, and you'll have a big group of plants in no time.) Unlike its cousin, the more showy red Cardinal Flower, which holds its flower stalks above the leaves, Great Blue Lobelia opens sky blue midsummer flowers in the axils of each upper leaf, and then continues blooming for weeks and weeks. It also sends out side shoots, resulting in striking blue bloom on a candelabra-like plant.
