Description

Stunning spikes of scarlet, five-petalled flowers rise up in late summer among beautiful, beetroot-coloured foliage. This gorgeous cardinal flower brings a splash of vibrant colour to the garden just as many perennials are fading.

A wonderful plant for filling gaps left by early-flowering perennials.

  • Soil: deep, fertile, moist soil
  • Flowering period: August to October
