Cardinal flower (Lobelia cardinalis) starter plant (dormant)


Cardinal flower starter plant Lobelia cardinalis. Beautiful native with bright red flowers that bloom in late summer. Favorite of butterflies and hummingbirds. Like medium to moist soils and partial sun.

These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Plants continue to grow roots without foliage. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. These are grown outside here in Michigan. These keep a small amount of foliage that needs to be protected through the winter with leaves or pine needles but not heavy mulch. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!

All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot especially if heavily rooted but we prefer to rip the sides or remove and compost the fabric when planting.
