Lobelia cardinalis is an easy-to-grow, North American native perennial whose native range includes 41 of the 50 states, absent only in the far northwest quadrant. Cardinal flower emerges from a flat winter rosette to produce a 4'-5' stalk (height varies with soil moisture), topped with bright red tubular flowers beginning in late summer and continuing into fall...always a favorite of hummingbirds. While Lobelia cardinalis prefers an acidic moist soil, it is amazingly tolerant of a wide range of garden soil conditions. When happy, it should reseed well.
