Nurserymen in England are not, as a general thing, as careful as they might be in getting the correct name of a plant before it is distributed, and hence we have often the annoyance of buying the same thing under several names. We must except from this criticism the houses of Bull and Veitch, which seem especially cautious in regard to the accuracy of the names they adopt for their new plants. We have had for some years in our collection Forsythia suspensa and Wiegela floribunda (distributed as such by Van Volxem), and added a couple of years ago Forsythia Fortuni and Wiegela "John Standish" from England, only to find they were the same we had had for years before.
