They are quite distinct from the early flowering, Darwin and other sorts offered, coming into bloom in the vicinity of Phila- delphia about May 10th, or two or three weeks later than the early-flowering types, and extending the Tulip season over a period ot four weeks or more. On account of their extreme hardiness, and long lasting qualities, they are specially adapted for the permanent hardy flower border, where they should be liberally planted in clumps or masses. They may also be naturalized in grass, wild gardens, etc. For bedding they are superb, while as cut flowers, having long stems vnth flowers of great substance, they stand in perfect condition for a long time. In planting the bulbs should be set a liule deeper than early tulips, a covering of 4 inches being about right. The heights given after each variety are actual measurements taken at our trial grounds. May 10th to May 15th. Gesneriana Lutea. This fine golden-yellow variety is con- sidered one of the best (24 inches). 60 cts. per doz.; $4.00 per 100; $35.00 per 1000. Gesneriana Spathulata Major. A superb Tulip of strong yet graceful growth, and bearing very large flowers of an intense brilliant crimson scarlet. No words or picture can begin to do this Tulip justice. It should be planted in gen- erous quantity (28 inches). 60 cts. per doz.; $4.00 per 100; S35.00 per 1000. Inglescombe Pink. A rare blending of buflf and salmon. Most attractive both in form and coloring (18 inches). 60 cts per doz.; $4.00 per 100; $35.00 per 1000. Inglescombe Yellow. Immense globular, rich yellow flower has been aptly called the "Yellow Darwin," blooming at the same time as the Darwins, and supplying the lack of yellow in the Darwin class (20 inches). 60 cts. per doz.; $4.00 per 100; $35.00 per 1000. John Ruskin. A striking variety of wonderful coloring. Apricot-rose, shaded with mauve and margined with pale yellow. A lovely combi
