The brilliant scarlet-colored flower of this North American species was considered the finest red in nature upon its introduction to Europe in 1629. Cardinal Flowers grow in moist woodland areas of Monticello, although the seed Thomas Jefferson sowed in a Monticello oval flower bed in 1807 was probably obtained from Bernard McMahon in Philadelphia. Cardinal Flowers thrive in very moist, partially-shaded sites but are also satisfactory in full sun if the soil is not too dry. Though a short-lived perennial, Cardinal Flower will persist in the garden if allowed to re-seed each year. Plants grow 3-4' high and flower from mid to late summer. Sow seeds on the surface of pots or seed flats, and then transplant seedlings two-feet apart during the growing season. USDA Zones 3–9.

Approximately 100-150 seeds per pack. zone3,zone4,zone5,zone6,zone7,zone8,zone9
