Monet Moment Lobelia

Availability: Out of stock

Pink spires and butterflies all season! The Monet Moment Cardinal Flower (Lobelia 'Monet Moment'), also known as Lobelia, has unique, large masses of rose-pink, spiked petals that form towers of nearly 2-foot blooms!

Set against lovely burgundy-green foliage, these colorful wands are must-haves for your garden if you have higher moisture soil and need a flowering plant that brings color for a long season of bloom!

Fast, easy, and rewarding, this Lobelia's columns of bright-pink flowers last longer than most, and are fragrant as well! This is a late-season dynamo because it has great flower production from late summer to fall. That means many happy pollinators and hummingbirds will be magnetically drawn to this work of art!

Landscape Application:

Monet Moment is fantastic as tall border accents and specimens when planted in groupings. These bright blooms attract all the attention in the Cottage Garden or mixed perennial border! Let the tall pink wands wave in a pollinator garden or cutting gardens for a gorgeous double-duty focal point!

You can also use this perennial in your herbaceous borders, on the edge of a pond or stream, in Rain Gardens, or in a wild garden. Then sit back and watch beneficial insects and dragonflies sun themselves on these tall wands!

Break out the easel and your favorite paintbrushes and get ready to try making your own timeless works of art! Try pairing Monet Moment Lobelia with Royal Candles Veronica or Kopper King Hibiscus. The color is absolutely stunning, so this is one plant not to be without! Mix and match with other rosy blooms that love to be planted in moist soil locations in the sun.

Plant as back-of-the-border accents with other tall flowering perennials like Gladiolias, Hollyhocks, and other Cardinal flowers for a pollinator buffet and height that makes skittish hummingbirds feel safe.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Monet Moment is a hardy perennial plant that needs to be planted in full sun, but it will take a surprising amount of shade in hotter growing zones of USDA zones 4 to 9, and still bloom like crazy! It prefers moist to higher moisture soil but should be planted in a well-drained area. Provide a 3-4 inch layer of mulch in drier conditions and water well when conditions have been dry and rainfall lacking, so your plant does not dry out. Deadhead to encourage a rebloom til fall, but leave the foliage until spring to protect the crown.

  • Full Sun (Some Shade In Hot Climates)
  • Well-Drained Soil Of Any Kind
  • Moderate to High Moisture Needs - Can Tolerate Occasionally Wet Soil
  • Appreciates Mulched Beds
  • Deadhead For Repeat Bloom & Prune Down In Early Spring
  • Fast Growing Easy-Care Perennial
