Quick Overview:

This new series of Cardinal Flower from Kieft Seeds is an improvement from older cultivars, with first year flowering plants, earlier flowering, better branching, and better quality finished plants. Both ‘Starship Deep Rose’ and ‘Starship Scarlet’ are sought after varieties as best in their class. Flowers are borne on dense, strictly upright spikes. Cardinal Flowers are excellent border plants for moist locations and are hummingbird magnets.

Description

Easily grown in rich, humusy, medium to wet soils in full sun to part shade. Needs constant moisture. Will tolerate full sun in cool, northern climates, but otherwise appreciates part shade. Divide clumps in spring as needed. May self-seed in optimum growing conditions.
