Cardinal Flower Seeds - Heriloom Seeds, Hummingbird Garden, Lobelia Cardinalis, Wildflower Seeds, Native Seeds, Rain Garden, Non-GMO
Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis) is a native perennial wildflower that is highly attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies. Its stunning red flowers grow up along a 2-4' tall stalk and bloom from late summer to early fall. It thrives in moist conditions and is an excellent addition to rain gardens. This plant is perfect for those who are looking to attract hummingbirds to their garden.
To grow Cardinal Flower, you can directly sow the seeds in early fall. Press the seeds into the soil of a well-prepared seed bed, but do not cover them as they require light to germinate. Alternatively, you can start cold-stratified seeds indoors under lights 6-8 weeks before the last frost. To cold stratify, mix seeds with moistened seed starting mix or sand and keep it in the refrigerator for 8 weeks. After that, press the seeds into the soil but do not cover them with soil because they need light to germinate. Transplant seedlings outdoors after the last frost and water regularly.
