In reply to enquiry "Carnation Peter Henderson," in November number we would say the new white perpetual Carnation Peter Henderson is distinct in foliage, growth and flower from any of the varieties named or any other in existence. We also will state here, that we believe some Eastern florists sent out last Spring, even to our city, the Peerless or Edwardsii Carnation instead of Peter Henderson. Perhaps the Edwardsii Pink has been a victim of the same dishonesty.
We would be glad to hear of the success with our carnations from florists which cultivate it now, and trust their reports will be as favorable as those on hand from some of the leading carnation growers in this country.
