Lobelia, Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis) - 250 Seeds
•American grown seeds
•USDA Zones: 3-10
Few perennials come close to producing the brilliant shades of red seen in cardinal flower. This stunning plant can provide an amazing pop from late summer to early autumn.
Direct sow cardinal flower seeds in late fall, planting on the surface of the soil since these seeds need light to germinate. For spring planting, mix the seed with moist sand and store it in the refrigerator for 60 days before planting. To start indoors, sow the seed 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring and keep the soil lightly moist until germination. Transplant the seedlings as soon as they can safely be handled and there is no chance of frost. Keep seedings well watered and control weeds. These plants need continual moisture, and thrive even in very wet soil. They may self-sow in growing conditions. Mature plants can be divided in early spring. These flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies, and flourish near ponds or streams.
