Cardinal Flower - Lobelia cardinalis
| Introduction |
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.
