The cardinal flowers are simply stunning in the garden now. Above is Lobelia ‘Monet Moment’. The key for successful cultivation is a moist soil and being sure the winter rosette remains uncovered.
This is Lobelia ‘Compliment Deep Red’...another of our favorites, flowering now.
Wow, gorgeous! I have a new appreciation for cardinal flower!
Thank you for the “tip”. No wonder I could never keep ‘Monet Moment’ in the back end of my yard, since it gets completely covered with snow most years. However, I do have the blue Lobelia, which multiplies impressively every year!
