Morning everyone, have a super day. I need to move this lobelia after flowering as it’s being overtaken by the pittosporum and it’s only got a couple of spikes this year. I love the contrast between them though so I’ll keep it near ❤️ #lobelia-queen-victoria #red

Morning Jane 🙋 it's a lovely combo. Mine got flattened by the rain and although it flowered well the stems were mostly horizontal 😏

Morning Jeremy, thank you. I’ve got a couple of plants like that, particularly my alstroemeria Indian summer. It got totally wrecked and has left a massive gap in one of my borders 😢 @jpea

Morning, you are right those two plants look well together, sorry about the alstro, but at least it should come back.

Morning Jane, I am going to have to wait until my Dahlia dies down before I can move my Lobelia - the Alstroemeria Indian Summer will have to be split - people on the waiting list for some of that😂

Morning Joan, thank you and yes, it will recover. I wish I could split it now as it would be much easier 🤔 @joannie.a

Ooh Rachel, now you've got me thinking 🤔, I've been trying to find a Salvia with a white stamen, but no luck!! So perhaps it is a Lobelia? Jane, do you have any more pics of this?? @rachelbrooks
