A showy native wildflower for moist soils and shady spots
Lobelia is a tall, showy native wildflower that’s a great match for moist, rich soils. Tolerant of both deer and rabbits, this colorful plant attracts plenty of pollinators including hummingbirds (the red variety – Cardinal Flower) to your garden’s shadier spots. Plant in a woodland setting or near ponds and streams, where it will even withstand some flooding. Statuesque and upright, use Lobelia to add some color up above neighboring plants.
