Cardinal Flower


Cardinal Flower is a tall growing, amply flowering Hardy Marginal Plant. Its recognizable flowers will flourish in the warm Summer months, attracting butterflies, and more excitingly, Hummingbirds!

Otherwise, plant Cardinal Flower directly into your Bog Area, and watch it spread laterally while pushing new stalks as high as 3 feet above the water! ***Available in both RED and BLUE flowering varieties.
