    Small, Neat plants Packed with Bloom Spikes!


    Concentrated Color in the Late Summer Garden
    Makes a Tight Column less than 2 Feet Tall – Never Flops!
    Easy to Grow
     
    Short in Stature, But Huge in Garden Impact!
    Tightly packed stems form a neat column full of blazing scarlet blooms that crowd together above a tidy mound of dark green foliage with a hint of purple. Though the plant is half the size of many Cardinal Flowers, its blooms are as big as any we’ve seen, and this small plant makes a huge impact in the garden! Blooms are bountiful, and they keep coming as long as 10 weeks starting in midsummer, just as many perennials start to look a bit tired – perfect timing to keep your yard interesting.  
     
    A Favorite of Hummingbirds and Butterflies
    Cardinal flowers, with their tubular shape and red coloring, are a traditional Hummingbird magnet, and butterflies come calling, too, for the late summer and fall blooms are perfectly timed to provide energy for fall migration and winter hibernation. Deer and rabbits do not find the plant palatable, but songbirds will feast on the seeds in late fall and winter.
     
    Growing Tips:
    Plant in ordinary well-drained garden soil. It will do well in full sun if soil is evenly moist, but not wet, especially in winter. Though it likes regular water, it will tolerate periods of drought after it's had a year or two to get its roots established. Also, in a drier location, it does better with some shade, especially in the afternoon.
