Mrs. J. P., Lynn, Mass., writes: "Is Saxifraga sarmentosa usually hardy in New England? I have had it come up in my wild garden, among the ferns and wild flowers, for two seasons. The bed is somewhat sheltered on the north-east side of the fence."

[This is well known as hardy about Philadelphia, and we should believe is hardy anywhere in the Union. It is a native of the north of China and Japan, and most plants from these countries are hardy anywhere in the United States - Ed. G. M.]
