Native to the western U.S., Lobelia cardinalis is an attractive wildflower that can reach 6' in height when in bloom. The bright red flowers on erect flower stem initially sit atop slender green stems lying below. The slender, tubular flowers are 1-4" long and have three showy curved petals, two smaller upper petals, and three spreading lower petals lined with tiny hairs. This plant is found in desert flats and mountain meadows. This perennial has an erect habit and grows in calcareous soils; It prefers full sun to partial shade.
Red Lobelia is one of the most favored flowers of hummingbirds and is common in Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Texas. Cardinal Flower is found in sandy, gravelly soils and calcareous rocky outcrops.
It is often difficult for insects to access the nectar of the tubular flowers, and therefore most of them feed on its pollen. It thrives in moist, fertile soil and full sun, though it can also tolerate heavy shade. This perennial can be cloned by seed or cuttings. Cardinal Flower depends on hummingbirds for pollination. The lower half of the stem is lined with small oblong to lanceolate leaves that curve upward along the stem. It has a delicate fragrance.
The family itself is one of the most prominent families of flowering plants. Cardinal Flower is native to the central U.S., ranging from South Dakota and Minnesota to Arkansas and north through the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois.
The Cardinal flower is a versatile native wildflower that provides vivid color throughout the summer in meadows, prairies, woodland edges, and roadsides. It often occurs in large colonies, especially where lupines are also present. Its spikes of crimson flowers boldly contrast with yellow legume flowers on the nearby Lupine plant.
Whether planted among rock outcrops or massed in borders, this Cardinal Flower makes an ornamental appearance. The upright spikes of scarlet flowers are particularly noticeable during the heat of summer or early fall.
