Wedge-leaf lobelia

Lobelia cuneifolia

This fast growing ground cover has glossy green leaves and masses of light blue flowers during summer. It is very low maintenance, besides keeping the soil moist as it prefers a wet environment. Its lovely spreading trailing habit makes it useful in containers and especially hanging baskets.
