You have before called attention to the desirability of this shrub in collections, on account of its beauty when in flower.

A correspondent writing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, praises it for its extreme hardiness. He says in the past winter with a temperature of 45° below Zero, and the snow blown from the trees, young plants of it were entirely uninjured. In this part of Pennsylvania, it is in full bloom early in May. I saw a bush about three feet high covered with its deep yellow pea-shaped blossoms.
