Mr. Dreer hands us the following from a correspondent: - " I have sent you by express one or two clusters of flowers from the hyacinth I named to you. The clusters grow something as shown in sketch. I have never, seen anything like this form of hyacinth before. I shall keep the bulb."
[Each single flower produces numerous small ones. Proliferous flowers are not rare. The geranium, and others, often have these proliferous flowers. We never saw it in the hyacinth before, and if the bulb continues to reproduce this peculiarity, it would be a good addition to garden curiosities. - Ed. G. M.]
