Native Plants at The History Center
Cardinal Flowers (Lobelia cardinalis) bloom from mid July all the way into November. Requiring a little more water than some other native flowers, they are most often found in the wild along river banks, creeks and streams. This 1-6 foot tall perennial with bright red, 8 inch flowers is very attractive in summer and fall landscapes and also attracts butterflies and birds, particularly hummingbirds, who love its nectar.
