Home Farm Herbery Lobelia Seeds (Lobelia inflata) are Organic and we have just harvested enough to share with our favorite Local Harvest Customers so buy early.
Lobelia is an overwintering annual or annual. Native to the central, southern, and eastern US. It is a diminutive plant with white flowers that have light-blue spots. These flowers give way to the characteristic “inflated” seedpods. Lobelia is an indispensable antispasmodic. Low dose botanical! A liquid extract of the seed is commonly used and can cause the impressive expulsion of thick, ropey mucous from sinuses and bronchi.
Lobelias prefer part to full sun, rich, moist soil, and much water. Short-lived seed. Light-dependent germinators. Sow seed in spring or fall. Average germ time in warm soils is 1 to 3 weeks. Water very gently. Extra advice on lobelia inflata--if you're really trying to grow a patch for production, it makes sense to follow the natural cycles for this plant. In nature, germination is in the fall, after which the low-lying rosette overwinters, and flowers and goes to seed in the next spring to early summer. If you try to grow it as a spring annual it will probably bolt to flower when the soils warm up in the summer and give very little yield.
