TRICKER & CO., CLIFTON, N. J. NYMPHJ1A GIGANTEA. (See Illustration Page 19). An Australian species, must not be confused with N. Odorata Gigantea, under which name a large, flowering form of our native Pond Lily is being offered. N. Gigantea is probably one of the handsomest of Nymphseas, the color being a satiny blue, shading to white, with yellow silk-like stamens. The flower is carried above the water on a stiff stalk, and is about the size of that of N. Zanzibarensis. The leaves are dentate, green above, and bright purple beneath. It is very impatient of root disturbance, and often a check from some unknown cause will result in the plant forming a tuber and resting for an indefinite period. A most desirable Nymphasa, and one of the best in cultivation. Price $2.50 each. NYMPH EA MEXICANA. This is a valuable addition to this class of Nym- phseas, closely resembling N. Flavain habit of growth, size, and color of leaves. The flowers are rich golden yellow, five inches in diameter; produced freely through the season until frost. The numerous runners also flower freely during the first season. This species never becomes thoroughly deciduous, and therefore should not be dried off. New Mexico. Price 50 cents each. NYMPELEA SCUTIFOLIA. A distinct variety; flowers large; bright blue; petals white at base, sweet scented, leaves sometimes of a purplish tint and spotted underneath, flower buds also spotted with reddish brown; a strong grower and free bloomer. No collection complete without this variety. From the Cape of Good Hope. Price Si.00 each. NYMPHiEA ZANZIBARENSIS. This is indeed a Royal Lily; flowers very large; intense blue, sepals deep green on the outside and purple within; margin red. This is one
