Should you receive your tree/shrub during dormancy, and it does not emerge from dormancy by June 1st - the same replacement policy applies.

For added peace of mind, we offer a 1 year extended warranty option. You can choose to purchase an extended warranty for 12% of your cart total at the time of purchase. This extended warranty covers your trees and shrubs for 1 year from the date of delivery. If your tree/shrub dies within the extended warranty period, we will provide you with a replacement plant or issue store credit for the amount of your original purchase. Shipping fees are not included.

Tree and Shrub heights are measured from the top of the root ball or soil, measuring only the above ground portion of your tree your shrub.

Elevate your garden with the exquisite beauty of the Black Truffle Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis 'Black Truffle'). This unique cultivar boasts deep, velvety-black foliage that serves as a dramatic backdrop for its vibrant scarlet blooms. Perfect for adding a touch of sophistication to any landscape, this perennial plant is a must-have for both experienced gardeners and beginners alike.

Growing Zones: Thriving in USDA hardiness zones 3-9, the Black Truffle Cardinal Flower adapts to a wide range of climates. Whether you're in the cooler northern regions or the warmer southern states, this resilient perennial is a versatile choice for a variety of gardens.

Basic Care Tips:

  1. Sunlight: Plant your Black Truffle Cardinal Flower in a location with partial to full sunlight. While it can tolerate some shade, providing ample sunlight will enhance its foliage color and promote abundant flowering.

  2. Soil Requirements: Ensure well-draining soil enriched with organic matter. This Cardinal Flower prefers consistently moist soil, so regular watering is key, especially during dry spells.

  3. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Regular watering, particularly during the growing season, will encourage optimal growth and flowering.

  4. Pruning: Deadhead spent flowers to prolong the blooming period and encourage continuous growth. Additionally, trimming back the plant in late fall or early spring will promote a more compact and bushy habit.

  5. Fertilization: Feed your Black Truffle Cardinal Flower with a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer in early spring. This will provide the necessary nutrients for robust growth and vibrant blooms.

  6. Winter Care: In colder zones, consider applying a layer of mulch in late fall to protect the plant's roots from harsh winter conditions.
