|Lobelia chinensis, a
perennial herb height of 10-15cm, inhabits damp places. Stems are
slender, crawl on the ground, extend long, and propagate by taking
roots from nodes. Leaves are 1-2cm long,2-4mm wide, in a lanceolate
shape, and of distichous phyllotaxis. Axils emerge long peduncles
and set single light red-purple flowers. As flowering ends, the
peduncles face downward. About 1cm long, corollas cut themselves
into five of the same size. Bloom time: June-October.
