This rabbit resistant perennial is perfect for borders and mass plantings. Easy to grow, Songbird 'Cardinal' is most noted for its floriferous habit and upward facing flowers that really put on a show. An exceptional perennial for naturalizing in part shade locations, Songbird 'Cardinal' puts on a spring show.
