What's Blooming In Summer



This plant is a type of lobelia, native from British Columbia to Central America, called "Cardinal Flower". It's been a great addition to the garden. Long blooming and loved by hummingbirds, this perennial works best at the back of the border, as it grows up to 3 feet tall. Once it finishes flowering, cut it back hard and it'll be back next year, ready to bloom all over again.

What a beautiful colour - not a variety of lobelia that I am familiar with.
