The genus name, Lobelia, honors the Flemish botanist Mathias l'Obel.
Lobelia is native to eastern North America and Europe. It can be either an annual or biennial and ranges from 6 inches to 2 feet in height. The leaves are alternate, sessile, ovate-lanceolate, veiny, and covered with hairs. The numerous tubular, fivelobed, hermaphroditic flowers are pale blue and originate from the leaf axil. Lobelia grows along roadsides and in both pastures and woodlands. The plant flourishes in moist, partially shady conditions in most types of soil.
Some Native American tribes believed that placing a leaf in the bed of a quarreling couple would help them regain their love. Lobelia was both chewed and smoked by Native Americans. The alkaloid lobeline mimics the effects of nicotine, and thus this herb can be helpful for people wanting to give up tobacco.
