    ‘Starship Deep Rose’ Cardinal Flower has rose-pink tubular flowers that open along strong flowering stems in mid-summer, attracting hummingbirds and pollinators into autumn. For a garden or meadow that stays fairly moist, ‘Starship Deep Rose’ should be at the top of your list! The margins of a rain garden, water feature, pond, or quietly flowing stream are perfect for this North American native. Low-to mid-growing lanceolate foliage is a deep burnished green and provides a perfect foil to the rose-pink flowers. ‘Starship Deep Rose’ blooms earlier than most Lobelias – a terrific improvement upon a treasured native plant.

Deer Resistant Perennials

Keep the deer away with fragrant perennials

Most deer-resistant plants are very fragrant, an attribute that is highly appealing to gardeners, but a huge turn-off to deer (rabbits, woodchucks, and other critters often feel the same). If you have high "deer pressure" in your neighborhood, the flowers listed here are a great place to start when designing a garden that will succeed without being munched on.
