S. B. B., Warrenton, Va., says : " I have an Agave which is quite a curiosity. It was last season a large plant of A. Americana var. For some reason the bud died; it made a new one in a short time, but instead of being variegated it was green. It continued dropping its leaves until the whole plant was of the common variety".

[It is not uncommon for variegated varieties of plants to return to their normal green condition. This is particularly the case with the Japan Euonymus. It is rare in the Mexican Aloes or Agaves. - Ed. G. M].
