Lobelia with no flowers!

i have a pot with lobelia which i grew from seed. It looks healthy but is not flowering. I asked a guy at farmer's market who was selling lovely lobelia baskets and he suggested i use some fertilizer. i added some Osmocote but still no flowers. It looks beautiful but i wish it could flower as well. The leaves were green but they have turned purple since i put it in sun. The change was only color and the plant remains healthy.

Below are few pictures :

It was green when it was in shade:

Kept it in sun and leaves started turning purple:

This is how it looks after couple of weeks in sun:
