CARDINAL RULE, FLOWER VERSION -  We don't see Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis) very often, so we were happy to spot some on a brook in the woods near our house. Like the Cardinal bird, the Cardinal flower gets it's name from the bright red robes worn by Roman Catholic cardinals. Cardinal flowers grow on wooded streamsides and moist meadows.
