More Information

Description A spicy addition to any native planting! ‘Vulcan Red’ Cardinal Flower (Lobelia speciosa) has vibrant red blooms and dark burgundy foliage, all packed into a compact, uniform habit. (Who said native plants had to be unruly?) It will perform well in average soil and moisture, but it will thrive in wet conditions! So if you have a bog or rain garden, plant it near the edge. Blooms appear in midsummer and last until fall, drawing hummingbirds and butterflies in to drink its uncommonly sweet nectar. These flowers also look gorgeous in arrangements where their shape brings a uniqueness to any style bouquet. Details Botanical name: Lobelia speciosa 'Vulcan Red'
Common name: Cardinal flower
Zone: 6 - 10
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun) to part sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 24-32" X 10-14"
Flower color: Red
Foliage color: Green and burgundy
Season of interest: Summer
Uses: Accent, background, native garden, border, cottage garden, cut flower garden, massing, naturalizing, pollinator garden, ornamental, rain garden, specimen, waterside  
How To Grow Soil: Grows well in average soils, but prefers high fertility.
Light: Performs well in full sun (6+ hours sun) if there are adequate moisture conditions but prefers part sun (4-6 hours sun) in dry conditions.
Water: Needs to be watered regularly until established and will perform best if continuous moisture is provided. Will tolerate dry conditions.
Spacing: 1 - 2 feet apart
Fertilizing: Fertilize in spring with an all-purpose garden fertilizer.
Winterizing: Leave foliage standing in winter to help protect the root zone. A layer of mulch around the base of the plant is recommended to hold in moisture.
Maintenance & pruning: In early spring, cut back all old foliage before new growth appears. Deadheading will potentially prolong bloom time and will neaten the appearance of the plant.

The plant arrived in good condition. I was happy to see that it has grown and I’m optimistic that it will survive the winter and grow into a healthy, beautiful plant next summer.

Beautiful!

This plant is absolutely thriving! Easy to follow planting instructions. I'm loving the contrast between the bright red flowers and the burgundy foliage. Wonderful addition to my butterfly and hummingbird garden!
