At a recent meeting of the Germantown Horticultural Society, Mr. Woodruff the well known florist, exhibited living specimens, and gave in detail an account of its ravages. As stated by Mr. Henderson recently, it was a serious enemy to the rose, as Mr. W. had found it equally a foe to geraniums and many other plants; the begonia especially seeming to be a favorite. Mr. Woodruff in his remarks, paid a high compliment to the usefulness of Mr. Henderson's paper in warning florists against the enemy.
