A spreading, trailing, low-growing half-hardy annual with small, dark-green leaves and a dense covering of white flowers in summer and autumn. ‘Fountain White’ will foam over rockeries, baskets and patio pots throughout the season and combines nicely with other Lobelias such as ‘Crystal Palace’ and ‘Sapphire Trailing’.
Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 4 - 6cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They are ideal for keen gardeners who have a greenhouse where the plants can be grown on until they are ready for planting out in the garden once all chance of frost has passed.
Please note: We grow these especially for you, so we do request that full payment is made when you place your order. See above for despatch dates. To ensure that your plants arrive in the best possible condition each pack will be despatched individually. Please also be aware that the pot in the photograph is not included.
Garden care: Pot up and grow on under glass until all risk of frost has passed and they can be planted outside in a well-prepared bed. Pinching out the growing tips will encourage them to become bushier, and feed with a high-potash fertiliser at regular intervals throughout the summer.
