PADG Notes: After frost damage, scraggly branches are pruned back to about three feet for a neater appearance. When danger of frost is gone, the plant is pruned to the ground. Mexican lobelia has spread aggressively in the garden and needs regular root pruning to keep under control.
Warning: Lobelia may cause serious illness or death if eaten. If ingested, immediately call the Poison Control Center or your doctor. In addition, the juice or sap of the plant can cause a skin rash or irritation. Wash the affected area of skin with soap and water as soon as possible after contact.
