Perfect for the summer garden, Lobelia speciosa Vedrariensis (Cardinal Flower) is a vigorous, upright perennial that features long spires of dark violet flowers on dark green leaves with a hint of purple from mid-summer to early autumn.

The flowers are a magnet for bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Adding vertical interest to the landscape, cardinal flowers make excellent border plants for damp or wet sites.

Grows to 90-120 cm wide 30-90 cm.

Performs best in deep, moisture-rich soils, in sun or partial shade. If sufficient moisture is available, it will thrive in sun. In drier soils, it should be planted in partial shade.

It is a good addition to flowerbeds and borders, containers, urban gardens, cottage gardens or near ponds or streams.

Beware of slugs and crown rot. Resistant to rabbits.

Bleaching of spent flowers will improve the overall appearance of the plant and may promote flowering. Cut back after flowering.

Propagate by division or by seed. Seed can be sown in early spring. Seed may not be true to type.

Ingestion may cause discomfort. Use gloves and other protective equipment for handling.
