Lobelia (Azulo)

lobelia

Summer in Japan is too hot and humid for lobelia to grow. I bought this lobelia because the gardening shop told me that this lobelia would keep blooming through summer.
It has been blooming since I planted it in a pot in late spring. This doesn't become tall, the branches spread well, and each has many flowers. It has the common name in Japanese "butterfly of Lapis lazuli color".

Language of the flower Modesty, Malevolence.
