It occurs naturely..and you can also get shades of pink, which must mean that the genes are not simple dominance/recessive.

Good luck and have fun.

Never seen the white before! While in Nebraska visiting home from Florida, my dad gave me some cardinal flower seeds that he and my uncle retrieved from a plant along the banks of the Platte River. The Pawnee indians were believed to have planted the cardinal flowers at there camp sites along the river as a love charm. Ill be planting mine this week hoping to attract some hummingbirds that fly by this winter and bring some native heirloom to the everglades!
