This old acquaintance so long overlooked or forgotten has appeared anew, and certainly it is worthy of long and lasting respect. It is a tropical "lily," with large, handsome evergreen leaves, and in fall bears ample umbels of lovely pure white fragrant blossoms. Single bulbs in 5-inch pots blossom beautifully, but when a 12-inch pot or tub-ful (containing many roots) is in flower, no Eucharis ever grown by Howard can equal it in exquisite copiousness. Mr. Bennett, of Flatbush, has perhaps the finest lot of it in the country.
