lobelia, edging lobelia.

The lobelia flower looks like butterfly.
It grows in sunshine and don't like to be watered too much.
As the another name in Japanese "sapphire butterfly" tells, the typical color of lobelia is blue. But, in my basket, white lobelia has more flowers than blue one has. This basket catches the sun from the right and white lobelia is planted on the right. It might be the reason.

Lobelia (edging lobelia )

Lobelia erinus.
