Looking for something beautiful and red? Then you’ll enjoy finding Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis) in bloom this month.
Cardinal flower grows in wet places and is quite a hummingbird favorite. I too love its deep, red color.
You can find it along the Butler-Freeport Trail south of Cabot, in the woods at Jennings Environmental Center and in many other places in western Pennsylvania. Check the creek sides, look in the shady places. It’s worth a hike to find it.
