Cardinal Plant, also referred to as Scarlet Lobelia or Cardinal Flower, originates from North America.  This plant produces thick leaves that are often a deep scarlet-red on the underside.  Color variations range from a light green on both leaf sides to a dark purple underside and dark green upper leaf.  Cardinal Flower is undemanding and hardy and will do well in varied aquarium conditions.  It is a slow-grower and good placement is the foreground or midground of the aquarium.

    Beautiful, healthy plant

    I have a cardinal plant before that was eaten by snails. Had to have another. I got more stems than expected, though the were smaller than I imagined they would be, they were all healthy and started growing as soon as I got them settled in my tank. Very happy with MA and will buy more in the future.

    Came in such good condition. I will definitely be buying more of these. The purple/redness of this plant is just gorgeous. It arrived very healthy with a good bit of strong roots at the base. They were dipped and added to my 20 gallon.
