Lobelia appendiculata A. DC.
Campanulaceae (Bellflower Family)
USDA Symbol: LOAP
The slender stem of the pale lobelia is erect, 14-24 inches tall, usually unbranched. The leaves, 1-1 1/2 inches long, are below the spike of flowers. Flowers are pale blue to white, about 5/8 inch long, growing directly on the stem. They are 2-lipped, tubular, and arranged loosely on a spike 6-15 inches long. The lower lip is 3-lobed and longer than the upper, which is 2-lobed and stands up like tufts of feathers above an owl’s eyes.
