I planted a very few Cardinal flowers four years ago. It is with surprise that I began to see them spread, and now these ‘baby’ Cardinal flowers are everywhere. They are so small – but so many – and so strong.
I suddenly noticed that that this little arrangement is unexpected. You can see that these Cardinals aren’t any taller than three feet – but there are many tall Cardinals as well, growing since they were first planted.
I had tried digging out this collection of small Cardinal flowers. I had to call my husband – who was much stronger and could break through those several Cardinal babies.
It took work to get the several Cardinals fully released. I am now keeping my eyes open as I work in the garden. I do not want to have the Cardinal flowers taking over – and I think it could happen.
