Wide-ranging in wetland areas throughout Eastern North America and the Southwest, Cardinal flower is an excellent, striking native plant to include in the garden. Cardinal flower produces spikes of crimson flowers, and is especially attractive to humingbirds.
Plant Cardinal Flower 18"-24" apart in moist to wet soils in part shade to sun - Sunnier sites require consistent moisture for Cardinal flower to thrive. Individual plants are typically short-lived, but they do self-sow reliably.
Plug flats are an economical way to fill large areas - We currently grow Cardinal Flower in our 50-cell deep plug flats.
