Lobelia tupa, a big stunning plant has everything going for it.

Size, strong upright stems, sharpe pointed leaves, the list goes on and on.

But for me the main feature is just starting to show, the flowers, even before they open the lovely shape of the flowers buds add amazing interest to the garden and the flowers aren't even open yet........

What is going on here? This photo was taken with my camera, no photos ever taken with my camera, ever turned sideways before.......... ;(

Is this part of the promised improvements????? Lots of flowers and plants need to photographed in portrait format!!!!!

Jackie if you'd like a piece, I'm moving one clump later on and I'll take a piece of it, no problem.

A fantastic high summer flowering perennial. I too love the contrast between the leaves and the flowers just before they open.
