Red Lobelia is a flowering perennial

Red Lobelia can easily see why the red lobelia (Lobelia cardinalis) is nicknamed the cardinal flower because of its bright red blooms. This relatively short clump-forming perennial rise in terminal spikes to be between two and three feet tall.

Very infrequently, this plant stands up to four feet tall. This plant will often spread between 10 and 14 inches. Red Lobelia, the bright red flowers are tubular, with the upper lip having two lobes while the bottom rim has three. Despite its name, this plant is not attractive to cardinals, but it is likely to attract hummingbirds and butterflies to your landscaping; Named after the red robes that Roman Catholic cardinals wear. Expect the flowers to appear in early summer and last through early autumn. After the flowers fade, a blue-green seed pod will look.

This plant loves to be wet all the time, and it will tolerate brief periods of flooding—many mulches around this plant to help the soil retain moisture. In colder climates, this showy flower prefers full sun, while in warmer climates, it prefers some shade during the day's heat.

This plant prefers to grow in clay soil. It will, however, tolerate alkaline or acidic soils; Red lobelias often make an excellent backdrop to other plants in a natural or rain garden; It also does well in one gallon or larger containers. The stalks on these plants are incredibly stocky. The bottom of the stem has lance-shaped leaves on alternating sides of the stem.

The Red cardinal flower is an American wildflower local to the Midwestern region and Michigan and Wisconsin. Tall spikes of beautiful red, trumpet-formed blooms transcend the dull green foliage. Each flower has three spreading lower and two upper petals, all assembled into a tube at the base.

Erect green stems, frequently in groups, with racemes of blossoms looking like flaming red spires. Red cardinal flowers add beautiful bright color to any landscape or floral garden. Their deer and rabbit are resistant, yet they are beautiful with butterflies and hummingbirds.

Developing cardinal blossoms sprout amid summer and, in some cases, into fall. Many insects have a hard time following the long necks of the trumpet-formed blooms, so cardinal blossoms rely upon hummingbirds for preparation. They also require moist, ripe soil and perform best, considering that organic matter is incorporated into the dirt before planting.

Red Lobelia Add a Beautiful Bright Touch of Color to Any Landscape or Floral Garden

You can transfer the red cardinal blossom seedlings outside four weeks after you planted them in the fitting plate, picking a zone with full sun or incomplete shade and fertile, loamy, and ideally wet soil. For best results, place a 2-to 3-inch layer of natural mulch around the blossoms and water consistently, keeping the dirt continually sodden for the bloom amid the developing season. The red cardinal flower is not dry season tolerant and performs best with continuously wet soil.
