Starship Deep Rose Cardinal Flower
Vibrant Vertical Interest
Starship Deep Rose is densely packed with a gorgeous coloration and an exotic plant form. Because the stems are so perfectly stick-straight with brightly hued petals hovering above, this cardinal flower is great for vertical interest in the back row of a border. It thrives best in moist soil, so it's nice along the shady bank of a stream or pond. You could also let it naturalize, and it fits right in with a woodland garden. Don't forget to cut some of these long stems for your cut-flower arrangements, too! It may look new and unusual, but don't let that scare you—it's very low maintenance, resistant to both rabbits and deer. Lobelia 'Starship Deep Rose'
