Lobelia cardinalis is a native woodland plant that grows naturally on rich, moist forest floors. It produces abundant clumps of tubular blooms on tall spikes, much beloved by hummingbirds and butterflies. Consider adding it to an existing wooded area or create your own garden. Dappled shade and humus-rich soil provide perfect growing conditions.

It is easily grown in organic-rich medium wet to wet soils, in light shade to full sun. It needs constant moisture, and will tolerate full sun in cool northern climates, but otherwise appreciates part shade. Divide clumps in spring as needed. It may self-seed in optimum growing conditions.

To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.

Supplied as #1 sized bare root. Tags are included with bare root perennials from DeGroot.
