Pot Size: 1.5 litre
Description: An unusual perennial from the Lobelia family, with an unusual habit forming long wiry pendant stems of alternate narrowly ovate decorative leaves. Which are conspicuously silver marked along their veins with equally conspicuously incised margins. Bearing in summer through into winter, large (for the size of plant) flared tubular bright pink flowers, with a swollen base, which eventually becomes a ball like seed capsule. A dweller of moist shady cliffs, where we collected it at the edge of the Paramo at high altitude of Manizales in Colombia in 2004. Best grown frost free in a container to allow for its weeping habit.
