Culture: Easily grown in rich, humusy, medium to wet soils in full sun to part shade. Needs constant moisture. Will tolerate full sun in cool, northern climates, but otherwise appreciates part shade. Divide clumps in spring as needed. May self-seed in optimum growing conditions.
Characteristics: This native plant is noted for its intense red flowers, late summer bloom and ability to thrive in moist, shady locations. Densely packed two-lipped cardinal red flowers bloom in erect flowering spikes typically growing 2-4 feet tall from July to September. A must for open shady border areas, wildflower gardens, shade/woodland gardens or stream/pond margins. Flowers are very attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. Zones 3 to 9.
