Lovely colour...
Is this new, or have you had it several years ?

Just a couple of years.
The flowers are almost the same colour as the Queen Victoria, slightly smaller though & lacking the impact of the Queen Vics foliage. It also only grows up to about 18".

Any advice for over winter, please ?
Does it die down to nothing and then shoot up again in the springtime ?
Planting conditions ?... soil ? shade ?

Dies down overwinter.
This was in to small a pot, so I've put it into a raised bed which is lined with plastic to keep in the moisture (Lobellias like it moist) in morning to midday sun.

Thanks. That's very useful information. :o)
