Lobelia is a showy perennial with large flowers that requires very little maintenance to thrive. The Laguna® Cloud White™ Lobelia is a long-blooming plant loaded with flowers that start in the spring and go through the summer and fall. The bell-shaped flowers are a clean white that will stand out if planted with other flowering plants or make a strong statement in a solo mass planting. The Laguna® Cloud White™ Lobelia is a perennial in USDA zones 9, 10, and 11 and is an annual in all other zones.
There are 415 different species of Lobelia, and the Laguna® Cloud White™ Lobelia is native to southern Africa. The large and striking blooms are what make this plant so appealing. The Lobelia has thin, green foliage that adds to the lush appearance of this mounding plant, but the foliage is not always visible due to the abundance of flowers. Lobelia is a favorite with bees and will attract these pollinators to your yard.
Laguna® Cloud White™ Lobelia Plant Care
As with all plants, the location matters, but the Lobelia does not require much care once you find a good spot. Lobelia needs part sun to sun, so 4 to 6 hours of sunlight exposure is plenty. Any less, and the plant will fail to thrive but much more, and the plant may not bloom. Water when the top few inches of the soil dry out. Lobelia plants do not like wet feet, which means they cannot handle consistently damp conditions or standing water. Soil should be well-draining and slightly acidic soil with a pH between 5.5 and 6.5.
Lobelia is self-cleaning, and spent blooms naturally fall off the plant. Deadheading is unnecessary, but if the plant looks scraggly or leggy, a slight trim will clean it up and promote more branching and flowers. The Laguna® Cloud White™ Lobelia is more heat-tolerant than other varieties of Lobelia, but the plant may stop blooming if the overnight temperature is above 70 degrees. The plant will appear healthy and green, but new flowers will not open until the nighttime temperature dips below 70 degrees.
Laguna® Cloud White™ Lobelia Plant Spacing
Laguna® Cloud White™ Lobelia is an excellent filler for containers, and this mounding plant can reach 6 to 12 inches tall. If used in a container, up to 5 plants can comfortably fit into a 12-inch pot. When grown as a landscape planting, Lobelia can overtake an area 12 to 24 inches across and should be spaced 12 to 18 inches apart.
