Can you identify this flower?

This white flowered plant was given to me over a month ago and it's thriving. It cascades. The plant has almost tripled in size & gets about 4-5 hours of sun a day. I have no clue what it is. But you can be sure I'll be buying some next Summer!

Yup i do,have mine in a pot with the purple one,both are bloomig now.I hope the white spreads as much as the purple does.

Trailing lobelia in all its many hues is wonderful--who doesn't love Crystal Palace? But in the heat of summer here--which is seriously hot--it stops being such a star performer and cooks instead. Sadly, the lobelia that is fabby in June is too often crispy in July, and especially in August. Come October, though, we just start over and replant new ones, which are great all through the winter until it gets too hot for them again.

I have been growing a strain from the Techno Heat series and I really love it be cause it doesnt die out like the others do.Mine is Electric Blue.This is the third year I've grown it and as long as I keep it watered it doesnt die out.
