The upside-down flowers vary from pale shades of blue and purple to white. Palespike lobelia tolerates a range of soil conditions (including moist soil on occasion) but prefers to be well drained.
Hummingbirds, long-tongued bees, butterflies, and other pollinators will find nectar when visiting. Most animals don't eat lobelias, but don't count on this one to deter deer.
