The Blue Cardinal Flower is a clump-forming perennial with upright leafy stems. It bears dense spikes of light to bright blue tubular, two-lipped flowers from summer through until autumn. It enjoys moist conditions so it is a great plant for a bog or waterside location.
Plant in deep, fertile, permanently moist soil in a full sun or partial shade location. The Blue Cardinal Flower prefers partial shade but in cooler, northern climates it should be in a full sun location.
