(20-24”tall x 12-24” wide) With deep rose colored blooms, strong branching, and a vigorous but well-behaved habit, ‘Starship Deep Rose’ Cardinal Flower, also known as Lobelia, improves on the things we love about our native red Cardinal Flower, and then tops them all with an earlier summer flowering period. Hummingbirds and pollinators adore the brightly colored flowers of this moisture-loving perennial. ‘Starship Deep Rose’ Cardinal Flower is a terrific choice for the edge of a water feature. Plant Cardinal Flowers in a full sun to part-sun location in average-to rich soils that retain moisture. ‘Starship Deep Rose’ Cardinal Flower blooms earlier than most Lobelias, and thus allows the gardener to extend the color season slightly.
