Lobelia speciosa Fan® Scarlet (Cardinal Flower)
A Favorite of Hummingbirds and Butterflies
A great accent for moist borders, near a pond or water garden, this vigorous perennial performs even in problem wet spots or standing water. Tubular shape and red coloring. Tightly packed stems form a neat column full of blazing scarlet blooms that crowd together above a tidy mound of dark green foliage with a hint of purple.
Blooms are bountiful, and they keep coming as long as 10 weeks starting in midsummer. The late summer and fall blooms are perfectly timed to provide energy for fall migration and winter hibernation.
