Mr. Kift places on our table a plant of his "Floribundum," to show how freely it flowers. It having been grown in a three-inch pot. This is indeed remarkable.
We have no doubt in our mind that Mr. Kift's Lily and Mr. Harris' are essentially the same, and that it is not worth while perpetuating the two names. As Mr. Harris' was first named, we suppose under the rule of priority it will continue to be called the Harris Lily. From all we can learn this variety has become partially naturalized in Bermuda, and has come to us both direct from the island and also sent through Florida. Its original home is in Japan.
