Lobelia Cardinalis


Petsmart is selling this as an aquatic. But I work at a nursery as a customer relationship manager (salesman) (one of the largest wholesale nurseries on the east coast. If you shop at a nursery in MD, NC, SC, TN, PA, or WV, chances are you have seen my product) Brownie points for anyone who can guess which one! And we sell that plant and last I checked it liked wet soil at most. Same with petsmart selling Ophiopogon (mondo grass) as an aquatic. Next thing you know they are going to be selling Rose Bushes as a true aquatic. Is there another type of Lobelia I don't know about? If Tricyrtis could be grown aquatically...that would be cool...

Can Lobelia be grown fully submersed?

The tubes of plants most commonly are plants that cannot be grown submerged, which people don't know - get home, plant them and then they melt and die a few says or weeks later. People assume that they killed them so Petsmart/Petco really wastes a lot of people's time and money, especially new people who don't know any better and want pretty plants without paying shipping.
