Plant Features

Cardinalis Lobelia plant is the basis for this plant genus that has spawned many varieties of this brilliantly colored hummingbird magnet. The deeply-saturated red flowers appear first as bright pink buds, opening to red Cardinal Flowers, the color of a Catholic Cardinal's robes, starting at the bottom of the raceme, and proceeding to bloom until the top of the stem is reached. The clashing of the pink buds and red-colored blossoms draws plenty of attention, not only from the hummingbirds and bees, but from all who see it! Shade Tolerant.

Comment: This Lobelia didn't do much of anything it's first year but that sometimes happens. It did not emerge along with the other perennials. Suddenly, it was just there after a couple of rain soaked days 3 weeks ago, now it's about 2' tall and blooming like crazy! It's a beautiful red also. Right under the Hummingbird feeder, with the lack of Hummers & Butterflies this year, I'm hoping it reels them in from afar!
