. Drumm Seed and Floral Co. : Fall, 1894-5 . SNOWDROPS. In the early spring months there is nothing more beautiful than a sheet of the snowy, graceful blossoms of the Snowdrop. Beds and effects of surpassing beauty may be arranged with Snowdrops in the center, edged with bright blue Scilla Sibirica, or Chionodoxa Luciliae, or by intermingling them. When practical, such plantings of the Snowdrop should be permanent. The Snowdrop and the Crocus, when planted in alternate circles, are very effective, and follow each other so closely that no gap is left in the succession. In beds of Tulips and Hyacinths, Snowdrops are very effective between the lines; they flower while these bulbs are just moving the surface, and when the flowers are over there remains an ele- gant groundwork of green foliage. Used as a permanent edging, and in masses on the edges of lawns, nestling in the grass, thev look charming. Single Snowdrops 3 for 5c, 15c doz., $1.00 100. Double Snowdrops. 3 for 10c, 25c doz. SPIK.EA, OH ASTILBE. Japoniea. (Ready in November.) The flowers are borne in large feathery panicles of white, and last a long time in bloom. Large quantities are forced by florists, though a per- fectly hardy herbaceous plant. This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and graceful subjects grown, its foliage and flowers combined making it one of the finest gems for winter and spring decoration in the house and conservatory, while for grace and elegance as a cut flower it is unequaled. 15c. each, $1.50 doz. Postage. 10c. per root extra.
