Lobelia cardinalis produces stunning spikes of vibrant, scarlet, five-petalled flowers which tower above beautiful, beetroot-coloured foliage. This gorgeous cardinal flower brings a splash of high impact, colour to the garden just as many perennials are fading. It is excellent for filling gaps left by early-flowering perennials in a mixed or herbaceous border and suits a planting scheme based on 'hot' colours.

Available as a 2L plant.
