delicate red flowering plant ID?
I have lived in this house for over 3 years now but am just noticing something that must have been planted -- it's beautiful! And I've probably been pulling it up each spring. Could you identify this plant for me?
That is our native Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis).
They are not long lived but can seed themselves and are a favorite of hummingbirds and butterflies.
