The cardinal flower (Lobelia cardinalis) is a species of flowering plant in the bellflower family (Campanulaceae) native to the Americas, from southeastern Canada south through the eastern and southwestern United States, Mexico and Central America to northern Colombia.

It is a herbaceous perennial wildflower that typically grows in moist locations along streams, sloughs, springs, swamps and in low wooded areas. It is a hardy, low-maintenance plant that is easy to grow in the home garden.

Here are some of the key characteristics of Lobelia cardinalis:

  • Height: 2-4 feet
  • Spread: 1-2 feet
  • Bloom time: July to September
  • Light requirements: Full sun to part shade
  • Soil moisture: Moist to wet
  • USDA hardiness zones: 3-9

Cardinal flower is a valuable addition to the garden for its showy red flowers and its ability to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. It is also a good choice for rain gardens and other wet areas.
