I found a new to me garden blog called This Grandmother's Garden and I've got to put lobelia on my wish list for 2012. Carolyn grows two types of lobelia..some she had planted in her flowerbed and some in a potted container, along with other annuals.

I don't have much blue in my flowerbeds and this appears to be one that is calling my name. If you grow this flower/plant, do you had luck wintersowing it or buy starter plants locally. I'm in Md/DC area and I know our summers get extremely hot and with high humidity. Would love to hear from gardeners in this area their experience growing lobelia, if they had any problems with it, and if so, what, and how they corrected it

The only other blue flower I have in my flowerbeds are some larkspurs which really are blue/purple color and the wild ageratum that I never planted. I would love to add more blues in 2012..Has anyone had any luck wintersowing lobelia?
