Keeping this in view, do Lobelia grow back every year?
Lobelia is a perennial plant that is often considered an annual because growing conditions must be perfect for it to survive to rebloom another year. More than 360 species of lobelia are grown as annuals, perennials or shrubs.
Also, is Lobelia a hardy? Lobelia is a genus of about 370 species of annuals, perennials (even some aquatics) and shrubs. They are all basically perennials, but some are treated as annuals. Since they originated from the tropics, many are not hardy in our area and these we tend to treat as annuals.
Accordingly, will lobelia survive winter?
Unlike its perennial cousins, annual lobelia dies back completely in the winter, though some types may grow from seed in the spring. Many annual lobelias are cold-tolerant and will survive longer into late fall or early winter than other types of annual flowers, but frost will kill them.
How quickly does lobelia grow?
Lobelia seedlings take up to 10 weeks growing indoors when sown from seed. The seed can be difficult to germinate, and the plants are widely available. Many gardeners purchase seedlings from local garden centers in spring. Grow lobelia in full to part sun after all danger of frost has passed.
