Cardinal Flower.

Cardinal Flower is native to much of the US and grows to a height of 2-4 feet. Blooms from July to September. Butterflies are attracted it, as well as hummingbirds. Hummingbirds are the primary pollinators.


Where to buy Cardinal Flower

I highly recommend Nature Hills Nursery. Their perennials cost a bit more but they are grown in 4'' x 6'' air-pruned pots that results in healthier plants with a highly developed root mass! The price is reduced however, if you buy more plants. Nature Hills also has a free plant and seed catalog that they will mail out to you.

You can read more information about Cardinal Flowers on the Nature Hills Nursery site to either order, read more detailed information about this plant or see more detailed pricing information. Or order by calling 1-888-864-7663 using the Source ID: 86642!


The Campanulaceae/Bellflower Family

The Campanulaceae/Bellflower Family are mostly herbs, rarely trees or shrubs.
