Lobelia (Perennial) "Cardinalis"
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. 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.
