Cardinal Flower

Lobelia cardinalis


Tall wildflower here in Missouri. Grows in the fall near streams and marshy places. Have seen 2 here near Nevada, MO in the same hidden area. Grown in flower garden at home for show.


Wetland, near drier parts of stream banks.


All my references say it grows near Lobelia Inflatia....But, unfortunately, I didn't find that.
