Common Name: Cardinal Flower, Hybrid Lobelia

Winner of the 1995 Fleuroselect Gold Medal! 'Fan Scarlet' sports compact, bronze foliage and a vigorous base-branching habit. Vivid scarlet flowers are borne on dense, strictly upright spikes.

Lobelia is an excellent border plant for moist locations and is a hummingbird magnet. It also attracts butterflies and swallowtails.
