Lobelia Starship Deep Rose, Cardinal Flower

Considered the best in its class, Starship Deep Rose Lobelia dazzles all with its majestic spires of rosy pink flowers on dark, nearly black stems.

The jewel toned blossoms are enhanced by its glossy purple foliage. Robust, vigorous growers, with well-branched stems, they bring stunning color and fantastic architectural interest to the garden. Earlier to bloom than other Cardinal Flowers, flowers may appear as early as mid to late June. Starship Deep Rose Lobelia will enliven gardens and containers with its rich color. A favorite with the pollinators, expect to see swarms of butterflies and hummingbirds. Extremely showy in and out of bloom. Plants produce many flower stems that are upright and strong.

Easy to grow in moist, rich soil. They prefer full sun to part shade. Deer and rabbit resistant.
