ROYAL BOTANIC GARDENS, KEW.

OF



MISCELLANEOUS INEOEMATION.



APPENDIX ra-1906.



NEW GARDEN PLANTS OP THE TEAR 1906,

The number of garden plants annually described in botanical
and horticultural publications, both English and foreign, is now
so considerable that it has been thought desirable to publish a
complete list of them in the Kew Bulletin each year. The
following list comprises all the new introductions recorded during
1905. These lists are indispensable to the maintenance of a
correct nomenclature, especially in the smaller botanical estab-
lishments in correspondence with Kew, which are, as a rule,
only scantily provided with horticultural periodicals. Such a
list will also afford information respecting new plants under
cultivation at this establishment, many of which will be distri-
buted from it in the regular course of exchange with other
botanic gardens.

The present list includes not only plants brought into cultivation
for the first time during 1905, but the most noteworthy of those
which have been re-introduced after being lost from cultivation.
Other plants included in the list may have been in gardens for
several years, but either were not described or their names had
not been authenticated until recently.

In addition to species and well-marked varieties, hybrids,
whether introduced or of garden origin, have been included
where they have been described with formal botanical names.
Mere cultural forms of well-known garden plants are omitted,
for obvious reasons.

In every case the plant is cited under its published name,
although some of the names are doubtfully correct. Where,
however, a correction has appeared desirable, this is made.

The name of the person in whose collection the plant was first
noticed or described is given where known.
