Why plant Vulcan Red Cardinal Flower?

You'll be doing a double take when looking at the Vulcan Red Cardinal Flower. The bright ruby red color its so widely known for is simply too good to be true! Its fabulous red flowers climb along a tall spire and act as a bright beacon for hummingbirds and butterflies. Once you add the Vulcan to your garden, those pretty pollinators will be swarming to your garden for a taste! This is one of the most showiest of all beloved North American prairie plants as its red coloring is intensely bold and the strong vertical accent draws your eye!

How to use Vulcan Red Cardinal Flower in the landscape?

For a bold impact to your garden, we recommend planting a row of them in a zig-zag pattern for them to really pop! They make for a beautiful garden when planted together, or use in cottage gardens, rain gardens, near ponds, and streams.

Hardiness Zone: 3-9

How To Plant Vulcan Red Cardinal Flower

Vulcan Reds prefer to be planted in conditions with full sun to part shade. They aren't too picky when it comes to the type of soil but these beauties thrive in moist, wet locations so plan accordingly!

How To Water

Water your Vulcan Red Cardinal Flower twice a week, more when rainfall cannot be promised for the first months. Water then weekly throughout spring and summer.

How To Fertilize

Although Cardinal Flowers do not generally need fertilizer throughout the year, if you'd like to give your Vulcan Red 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.

How Does Shipping Work?

Size Small (AAA), Medium (A2A), and Large (AA) plants (our Treelings, Shrubs, Bushes, and Perennials) will be shipped directly to your home by a common carrier. Ships in a plant-safe designed box within 5-7 business days.
