LOBELIA CHINENSIS CREEPING LOBELIA

Lobelia chinensis
Creeping Lobelia
Wonderfully fast spreading perennial that creeps along by sending out above ground runners. Hot pink flowers fade to light pink  in summer. Excellent choice for patios, curbsides, and lawn substitute.This plant will work in any place where hot, baking sun is a problem. Needs hot weather to break dormancy. Sharp drainage is a must.

Tips from Fran
Lobelia chinensis is another heat lover. Give it the hottest part of your yard and watch it grow!
 
Our exception with this plant is in meadows. This will work in a meadow environment when given the outside hot, baking edges.
