The Starship™ Rose Cardinal Flower adds bright color to a summertime landscape. This Lobelia speciosa has sturdy upright stems with a reddish hue and lovely pinkish-red blooms. The long-blooming flowers put on a dazzling display all summer. Dark green foliage fills the lower portion of the tall stems, giving the plant a dense appearance.

Feature this clump-forming plant in borders, beds, or containers. The compact form is excellent for adding height and will lightly spread by self-seeding with time. This beauty is deer and rabbit resistant but supports pollinators. The Starship™ Rose Cardinal Flower grows in zones 6 through 10.

Starship™ Rose Cardinal Flower Care

Plant the sun-loving Starship™ Rose Cardinal Flower in a spot that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight. The soil should be fertile and moist but still allow drainage. This plant likes consistent moisture, but does not tolerate soggy conditions. Fertilize every two weeks using a balanced plant food.

Prune leggy plants by mid-summer. Trim growth to ground level in the fall or sooner if you don’t want the plant to self-seed.

Starship™ Rose Cardinal Flower Spacing

The Starship™ Rose Cardinal Flower is a tall perennial that reaches 20 to 24 inches tall and 12 to 24 inches wide. Space plants 12 to 14 inches apart to create a dense mass planting.

Plant Addicts Guarantee (Included On All Plant Orders)

Plant Addicts always guarantees your plant(s) will arrive happy & healthy. However, plant(s) are being shipped through the mail & sometimes accidents happen.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
