Lobelia Cardinalis (Cardinal Plant ‘Dwarf’)


Cardinal Plant is a very versatile North American plant that can be grown submerged or emersed in aquariums, palludariums, and terrariums!

Cardinal Plant (Lobelia cardinalis) is a very unusual foreground and middle ground plant for the planted freshwater aquarium. It can also be excellent in the background if grown tall enough. Its submerged form is bright green, sometimes with red-purple on the undersides of the leaves, although this red-purple coloration is more typical in its emersed form. This plant is perhaps best known for the bright red flower that grows from its emersed form.
