I'm really pleased this year with my Lobelia tupa. This is a lovely but somewhat tender
perennial, which grows to around 3 feet tall and has the most wonderful spires of dark red flowers. I bought this about three years ago, but it never did very
well, so last autumn, I replanted it on a sunny bank, and this seemed to do the trick! It obviously needs a well-drained sunny site, and although I had
originally planted it in a south-facing border, it wasn't particularly well-drained and also tended to get overshadowed by more exuberant neighbours. It is
now covered with flowers, and looks wonderful!
