cardinal flower 8-8-17_065
About the time I thought all the cardinal flower (lobelia cardinalis) didn't survive in my garden, I spotted this one plant from a prior year's attempt. One of the more difficult plants for me to propagate in the 'humbird jungle.' Oh, the little birds seem to really like it.
