A bulb, from the Rio Grande in South Ame-

fear it has been lost at the dispersion of Dr.
Herbert's collection, who had dry specimens of
five more species of Gelasine. Nuttal's Nemo-
stylis is the nearest genus to it, but Tricho-
nema, so well known, will give a good idea of
it; light sandy soil suits them best ; they seed
freely, and seedlings flower the second season
from the sowing, and like most Irids they in-
crease by offset bulbs.

Low shrubs, all with yellow flowers, good for
making quickly an ornamental appearance in
a shrubbery. The greenhouse and half -hardy
kinds like peat and loam, with a little sand and
leaf mould, and are propagated by cuttings of
the young shoots, in summer, in sand, under a
bell-glass. The hardy kinds are easily pro-
pagated by seed, and the most rare by cuttings,
under a hand-light, after April, in a shady
place. Whatever plan is adopted, they should
be frequently transplanted, or at once removed
to their position in the shrubbery, as they make
long naked roots. Canar tennis is about the best
of me greenhouse ones, and that in a dry place
requires only a little protection out of doors.
Lusitanica, and radiata, look interesting, even
in winter, when the leaves are gone. Angelica
is the rough-looking spring dwarf bush that
blooms so freely in our moist moors. Tinctoriu
is used in all its parts, for producing a yellow
dye ; and on a rock work, or on the top of a

downwards, few things in spring, and the be-

The roots of G. lutea is the true gentian of

and by Quassia amara. The smaller kinds may
be treated as Alpines; and whether grown in
pots or not, a little heat and sandy leaf-mould
should be given them. All may be propagated
by seed sown as soon as ripe ; the perennials,
also, by division in spring. Some of the creep-
ing low-growing kinds, as acaulis, make nice
edgings to walks and borders.

A very few require the pit or greenhouse in
winter, and these should have equal portions of
peat, loam, leaf-mould, and sand. Almost all
are hardy, and flourish in common ground ;
many grow under the shade of trees and hedges,
