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 season. Most of the native plants we sell need a natural dormancy period and we keep them outside to naturally go through this. The plants you will receive will have a small rosette of green leaves that they retain through the winter and will have good roots. After planting they will continue to grow more roots so treat them like they were growing. Protect the rosette of leaves with a light mulching of fallen leaves or pine needles but nothing heavy. A snowfall also helps protect these leaves.

All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed .
