Flower of the Day: Great Blue Lobelia

Lobelia siphilitica; Campanulaceae (bellflower family)


Another find from Cool Spring (see yesterday’s post) in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia.  Stately plant, several feet tall.  The bright blue flowers are even more stunning when you see them in the deep shade.



USDA shows this plant as unreported in Jefferson County, where I found it. Hmmm.
