Nanz Neu-ner & Co. send us a photograph of which we can truly say that it fully justifies all that they say of it in the following note :
"We take great pleasure in sending you a photograph of our new double white carnation ' Peter Henderson.' It is a true representation of a one-year old plant grown in a 9-inch pot, bearing at the time, when the photograph was taken, over 160 flowers and buds, besides showing an abundance of young flower stems breaking from the base and joints. The flowers are large, pure white, and average 23/4 inches in diameter, although there are a great number of blooms on the plant which measure three inches and over".
