All new varities of Pelargoniums, heretofore, have generally had a great deal of sameness about them, but in the new Zonal, Dr. Denny, there seems to be a variety that looks as if it were to be the forerunner of an entirely new class.
In the Florist and Pomologist for June, there is a beautiful illustration of this variety; the flowers appear large and of good form, the petals are nearly blue, and at the base of the upper petals there is a dash of bright orange scarlet. The combination of color is the great novelty.
