    Description

Lobelia cardinalis - Cardinal Flower

This is a listing for a pack of 200+ seeds.

Lobelia cardinalis (also known as L. fulgens, the Cardinal Flower) is a species of Lobelia native to the Americas, from southeastern Canada south through the eastern and southwestern United States, Mexico and Central America to northern Colombia. It grows to about a meter tall (when in flower) and has bright red flowers.

Cardinal flower is often cultivated for ornamental purposes and has also been used for medicinal purposes.

It is a perennial herbaceous plant that grows up to 1.2 m tall and is found in wet places, stream banks, and swamps. The leaves are up to 20 cm long and 5 cm broad, lanceolate to oval, with a toothed margin. The flowers are usually vibrant red, deeply five-lobed, up to 4 cm across; they are produced in an erect raceme up to 70 cm tall during the summer to fall.

This plant is easily propagated by dividing and spreading out the young plants which form around the older mature plants each year. Although the plant is generally considered a perennial any one plant may only live 7 to 10 years and then die. To ensure that your whole collection of cardinal flowers do not die off at the same time be sure to propagate some new plant lines using seeds at least every 4 years or so.

Hardy in Zones 4 - 10 and tolerant of wide range of conditions including areas subject to continuous damp.
