  • It is a perennial herbaceous plant that is found in wet places, streambanks, and swamps. The leaves are up to 20 cm (8 in) long and 5 cm (2 in) broad, lanceolate to oval, with a toothed margin. 
  • Considerably smaller than normal Lobelia cardinalis.
  • Roundish leaves
  • It can be variously used in the foreground and midground, also in nano tanks.
  • During the warmer time of the year it can also be used outdoors as emersed plant where its striking red flowers may appear.
  • Lobelia cardinalis 'small form' is a very interesting cultivar of the larger-growing standard form of L. cardinalis. It can be discerned from the latter by its rounder, coin-shaped leaves and the far smaller overall stature.
  • A good nutrient supply, the addition of CO2 and sufficient light result in a very bushy habit and nice green colour. (read more)
