How To Plant Queen Victoria Cardinal Flower
Queen Victoria thrives in a rich, medium to wet soil in full to part shaded areas. If you've got a location with poor drainage and damp soil as a result, the Queen will plant herself happily there! We only ask for the best for royalty!
How To Water
Water your Queen Victoria twice a week, more when rainfall cannot be promised for the first few months. The Queen prefers a moist, wet soil to shine!
How To Fertilize
Although Cardinal Flowers do not generally need fertilizer throughout the year, if you'd like to give your Queen a boost, we recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food.
How To Prune
In season, you should deadhead the spent blooms for a clean cut appearance and to encourage new blooms. After the flowering time has passed, you should cut it back.
