Mexican Cardinal Flower

Mexican Cardinal Flower

Lobelia laxiflora

In oasis zones, or planted around water features, Lobelia laxiflora provides a lush green feel, colorful red flowers, and at-tracts hummingbirds. This native of
southern Arizona, Mexico and Central America is usually found at elevations from 4000 to 5000 feet. Loose flowered lobelia blooms in the spring, summer and
fall with loose clusters of red tubular flowers that have yellow-orange throats. It thrives in wet soil, but does not require excessive amounts of irrigation to survive
and look good. It will grow to about 2 feet tall by 3 feet wide. Underground stems allow this perennial to recover quickly from temperatures as low as 10.
