Beautiful plants from seed

Pinetree is a very reasonably priced place to buy seeds. This will be my first choice from now on. The lobelia is growing amazingly and looks terrific.

Color not the clear blue that I expected

Since it is almost impossible to find this item in nurseries, I have started this trailing lobelia many times. The seeds germinated fine, but the blooms are more the color of the darker non-trailing variety.
