Lobelia siphilitica: glorious azure spires

[Photo: Lobelia siphilitica in bloom, Toronto Botanical Garden.]After admiring photos of great blue lobelia (lobélie syphilitique), and botching my attempt to grow it from seed, I was excited to find it at the Toronto Botanical Garden. Even at the end of the season and a bit past its prime, it's gorgeous! Definitely worth further attempts to grow it in our own garden.
