Lobelia cardinalis var. rosea. - This beautiful variety of the Cardinal flower was found in the neighborhood of Tewksbury, in this state. The flowers differ from the Cardinalis only in color; instead of being a brilliant scarlet, they are a fine rose color, striped or shaded with scarlet; the cultivation of course the anie. There is no flower that improves so much by cultivation as the Cardinal flower. If a moist location is found in the garden, made light by the application of sand, and enriched by strong manure, this superb plant will repay all the trouble; or, without any extra care, in common garden soil it will do well.
