Lobelia cardinalis (Cardinal Flower) 3-4ft tall when blooming; late summer flower spikes are bright red and are preferred by hummingbirds! Appreciates moisture. Partial shade to full sun. SIZE: 1gallon
Contacted owner about 1 broken branch. She advised and will be planting by pond today
In mid-May, I received a small (~8"), single, robust plant in good health and with enough potting soil to plant directly. Although packed quite well, during the 3 days of shipping it apparently had been stored upside down, such that it arrived with a substantial kink. Fortunately, after about three days in the ground it regained full turgor pressure and is doing well. Good quality.
The Cardinal Flower was packaged very well with green leaves and nice rootball. I fully expect this perennial to survive the transplant.
The two wrapped root balls arrived promptly and in good condition - there were actually more than 4 Cardinal Flower plants in the two 1 gallon order. The pants are now happily living in three clay pots in the very shallow end of my small pond. I'm looking forward to seeing their flowers!
This was a small rosette but healthy and continues to do well in a pot with irrigation..
Received a nice full plant, surprise to see it in such good condition for this time of year, being out of season and all, it even had lots of leaves!
