In the autumn of 1909 the surviving plants were treated again as they were in 1908. In the spring of 1910 the following varieties, after having stood undisturbed for three winters in the same place, give promise of excellent results in the summer of 1910: -
White. - Seagull, Peace, White Beauty, Pencaitland, Christiana.
Cream. - Sylvia.
Primrose. - Sulphurea.
Yellows. - Grievii, Redbraes Yellow, Klondyke, Mrs. E. A. Cade.
light Blue. - Blue Duchess, Lilacina (bedding Pansy).
Dark Blue. - Royal Scot, Archd. Grant, Edina, Blue Rock, Jubilee.
Unclassed and Fancy. - Wm. Neil, Blue Cloud.
Some varieties appear in this last list which appear only in the first list. This is explained through their being less effective during the first two years, but have now proved to be more perennial than some of the others which were more effective in 1908 and 1909. It is well known that seedlings are much hardier and more perennial in their character than most of the named varieties. This is so not only with Pansies and Violas but with all florists' flowers. The difficulty is to secure in any fair proportion of the seedlings the same high quality possessed by the parents.
