The margins of a rain garden, water feature, pond, or quietly flowing stream are perfect for this North American native.

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.
