In Lucie Le-moine we have a new double-flowering white Clematis which is destined to take high rank among these beautiful garden flowers. It is a Continental variety, as yet but little known, for, as we have had so many introduced of late by the English raisers, it has been well nigh overlooked. Hence the necessity of directing prominent attention to it. It is an early-flowering variety, and the flowers, which are of the purest white, are produced very freely; they are rather larger than those of John Gould Vietch, and more double. It can be strongly recommended for pot-culture, as a conservatory climber, and for outdoor decoration generally. It now appears to be in the hands of all the principal nurserymen.- Gardeners' Magazine.
