John S. F., Evanston, | Ills., writes : "By this day's mail I send you two of my seedling Coleuses, which I think are an acquisition to our list of Coleus; they are good bedders. I had them planted out fully exposed to the sun, and they never burned. The yellow variety is dwarf and bushy, the other not so much so. Give your opinion of them through the Monthly and greatly oblige".
[The Coleuses are very good, but the fall value for bedding will have to be decided by competition with others already known. - Ed. G. M].
