Product Description

Red cardinal flower - Lobelia cardinalis

The Red cardinal flower, is an American wildflower local to the midwestern region, as well as Michigan and Wisconsin. Tall spikes of splendid red, trumpet-formed blooms transcend the dull green foliage. Each bloom has three spreading lower petals and two upper petals, all assembled into a tube at the base. Erect verdant stems, frequently in groups, with racemes of blossoms looking like flaring red spires. Red cardinal flowers add a beautiful bright touch of color to any landscape or floral garden. They deer and rabbit resistant, yet they are very attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. 

Developing cardinal blossoms sprout amid summer and in some cases into fall. Many insects have a hard time following the long necks of the trumpet-formed blooms, so cardinal blossoms rely upon hummingbirds for preparation. They also require a clammy, ripe soil and perform best considering that organic matter is incorporated into the dirt before planting.

 Red cardinal flower seeds must be started indoors, 8 to 10 weeks before the last frost in late winter. You can transfer the red cardinal blossom seedlings outside four weeks after you planted them in the fitting plate, picking a zone with full sun or incomplete shade and rich, loamy and ideally wet soil. For best results, place a 2-to 3-inch layer of natural mulch around the blossoms and water consistently, keeping the dirt always sodden for the bloom amid the developing season. The red cardinal bloom is not dry season tolerant, and performs best with continuously wet soil.
