In the December number of Regel's "Gartenflora" just received is a colored figure and description of a new Honeysuckle, lately discovered by Dr. Regel's son, Albert Regel, in the alpine regions of Eastern Turkestan. It is a dwarf shrub, very diffusely branched, and furnished with small, narrow leaves, from the axils of which the blossoms are produced. These are in pairs, star-shaped, and of a pleasing, rosy, lilac color. This desirable shrub, which will probably turn out to be hardy, we hope may soon be seen in our gardens. - Garden.
