edging lobelia, Lobelia erinus

Most wild lobelias that we see are native. There are occasional exceptions, and edging lobelia is one. Mostly we see these skirting garden beds or landscaping. Once and a while they get adventurous. Or we help them by dumping garden debris somewhere we maybe should not. Edging lobelia has been found wild in CA, HI, MI, OR, PA, and UT. Cultivated, Lenawee Co MI, 5/6/13. Bellflower family, Campanulaceae.
