Lobelia, Crystal Palace Blue is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny and tough I anticipated a plant with seeds so small (Less than 1 mm) would be hard to grow. Not so! They germinate well and even transplant as little threads without apparent set back. One pleasant result of planting Crystal Palace is finding volunteers around the stepping stones in my vegetable garden. A jolt of blue to brighten the greenery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous in Hanging Baskets These plants look positively striking in large hanging baskets when they are used as an accent and combined with other plants. I planted mine with petunias and verbena and people would frequently comment on how gorgeous the baskets were. The color is much deeper and prettier than pictured and the flowers are very small and dainty. One word of warning - water it regularly and do NOT let this plant dry out. It does not recover once it dries out.
