I like the 2-tone colouring. So clever of you to nurture it.

Wow! What a lovely plant and a "present" from your neighbour too!

The most difficult bit was teasing the seedlings out of the block paving. Bottle Brush seedlings do the same and of course weeds.
I've also got 1 seedling of H. Raspberry Ripple from the same source but unfortunately its got muddled up with pots of Blue Bird saplings, so I will have to wait till I confirm its authenticity before planting out.

I used to get lots of lobelia seedlings in the last place we lived at Siris,and then carefully got them out the paved areas and potted them up, which turned out to be the trailing ones for baskets.

Between the block paving is like a heat sump propagator, ideal for sun loving plants to geminate.
