Questions & Answers

Can you plant at the lake edge

Can you plant at the lake edge
Asked by: Emily
Hi Emily! The cardinal flower can definitely be planted at the edge of a lake, or even a stream. It is very easy to remove this plant from its pot and plant along the edge of a natural waterway. You may see these in nature at these same places. This plant goes to seed very easily and I have seen it growing along creeks in one place one year and another place the second year. It is a great plant that will attract hummingbirds and is a vivid color contrast to any pond, lake or stream. Enjoy!!

How far down into the water can you place this plant?

How far down into the water can you place this plant?
Asked by: Sweetpea
Hi Seetpea! The cardinal flower does not like to be in deep water. You often see it along the banks of creeks and ponds not even actually in the water. I would keep it up near the surface of your pond and not much more than an inch below the surface. As the plant grows taller, maybe you can go up to 2 inches deep. Enjoy this attractive native!
