The Native Plant Store can Now be Found Here

  • This page will remain accessible as a library page until I have all the species moved to the new page and all the quirks worked out in the new software so it can function as a searchable library.
  • Please see the Using the Plant Library  page  for some tips on how to make the most of the information in this existing library to select species for creating a healthy native plant community suited to the conditions of your site.

Lobelia spicata, Pale Spike Lobelia

Lobelia spicata

Pale Spike Lobelia

  • Average to moderately dry or moderately wet soils
  • Full sun to light shade
  • 24” tall, 12” to 18” spread
  • Summer blooming
  • Native to Ontario, Beginner Friendly, Meadow and woodland margins ecosystems
  • Short-lived perennial

Still new to my gardens, grown from seeds sourced from Prairie Moon Nursery.

A delicate lobelia with narrow, upright stems and pale blooms. This one grows outside of cultivation in meadows, among the taller perennials and grasses. Tolerant of dryer soils than some other Lobelias.

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing at the link above for more details.
