    • Special Features - Red Cardinal Flower are short lived perennials so letting some of them self-seed is desirable.
    • Germination -  After refrigeration, sow seeds very thinly in a seed flat, then cover the seed with a light dusting of soil. Water the flats from the bottom to avoid burying the seed too deep or washing the seeds into clumps. Seeds will germinate in about a week in warm soil.
    • Special Note: Clean, dry seed must be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for a couple of months before planting. (Seeds reportedly can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three years without much loss of germination.)
