There are few plants that will flower in places from which sunshine is entirely excluded. Some plants will grow well enough, developing shoots and leaves, but flowers of nearly all kinds must have some sunshine. Of those that do well and flower when planted out in the open ground where sunlight only comes for two or three hours during the day, may be named the following: Calceolarias, Fuchsias, Lobelias, Herbaceous Phloxes, Pansies, Forget-me-nots, Lily of the Valley, and other herbaceous plants and shrubs whose native habitat is shady woods. Perhaps a better effect is produced in such situations by ornamental leaved plants, such as Co-leuses of all kinds, Amaranths, Achyranthes, Caladi-ums, Cannas, and other plants with high colored or ornamental leaves. With these may be combined the different styles of white or gray-leaved plants, such as Centau-reas, Cinerarias, Gnaphaliums - plants known under the general popular term of "Dusty Millers." For our own part we much prefer to devote shaded situations to such plants, rather than to see the abortive attempts to produce flowers made by plants in positions where there is no sunshine. It may be here remarked that the cultivator of plants in rooms should understand the necessity of sunlight to plants that are to flower, and endeavor to get them as near as possible to a window having an eastern or a southern aspect. The higher the temperature, the more plants suffer for the want of light. Many plants, such as Geraniums, Fuchsias, or Roses, might remain in a temperature of 40 degrees, in a cellar for example, away from direct light for months without material injury, while if the cellar contained a furnace keeping up a ternperature of 70 degrees, they would all die before the winter was ended, particularly if the plants were of a half hardy nature. If tropical species, they might stand it better, but all plants quickly become enfeebled when kept at high temperature and away from the light.
