This is the freest flowering Primula we know of. The seed comes up very readily, and the little plants tliniw up tiny flower stalks wlien only a few weeks old. These, however, should be pinched off, and the plants kept growing until October, when the flowers may be allowed to develop, and from then on until late in spring they produce their sprays of beautiful rosy lilac flowers in seemingly never-ending profusion, and we predict it will soon be as much of a favorite here as it now is in Eu- rope. (See cut.) 25 6434 Floribunda. This is one of I he prettiest and best of the Primroses, and is of the same general character and tvpe as P. Obconica, differing only in color of the flower, which is o lovely shade of Primrose yellow. Very fragrant and free- Primula Forbbsi. blooming 25 Primula Cortusoides Amcena.
