I've tried to grow lobelia for three years now and it always lives for a short period of time and then dies. It never thrives. Each time I have purchased healthy seedlings from a gardener outside of town. I just came across an old note I wrote that says to put iron on lobelia. I'd appreciate any help you all could share to help me grow it. Does it need iron rich soil?

It's an annual.
Iron helps, especially in Idaho.
