The Mexican Tiger Flower, or Ferraria pavonia, and F. conchiflora, are flowers of exquisite beauty. The bulbs are tunicated, producing from one to four stems each, from eighteen inches to two feet high; the flowers are of short duration. It is born to display its glory but for a few hours, when the sun totally destroys all vestiges of its beauty; but, to compensate for this sudden decline, it continues to produce its flowers a number of weeks. The shape of the flower is singularly curious, and the coloring of each variety gorgeous. The flowers of the first-named variety are of the richest scarlet imaginable, variegated with a bright golden yellow. The ground-work of F. conckiflora is of the richest orange, variegated with light yellow, and spotted with black. No flower can exceed it in beauty; but nature does not lavish all her sweets upon one flower; - in this there is no scent. The flowers are large, and produced in July and August. It is properly a green-house plant, but is easily cultivated in the open air. The bulbs should be planted about the middle of May, about two inches deep, in any rich garden-soil, and require no particular care. The bulbs and offsets should be taken up in October, and dried; but be particular not to expose them to frost while drying, or at any other time, as that would destroy them. They may be kept in dry sand, sawdust, or moss, until the time of.planting in the spring. The mice are very fond of the roots, and, if they find them, but few, if any, will be left to plant.
