De Parme. - This is of pale lavender - purple, and specially suited for frame culture. It flowers earlier than Neapolitan.
King of Violets. - This flower lacks refinement, and should only be cultivated out-of-doors. The colour is deep indigo-blue.
Lady Hume Campbell. - One of the very best late-flowering kinds.
Marie Louise. - One of the most popular of all double Violets. The colour is mauve-blue with a white eye. Two blooms are illustrated in the plate, one lighter and the other richer coloured, owing to details in the cultivation.
Mdlle. Bertha Barron. - This variety is also known as Victoria. The plants are vigorous but of compact growth. The colour is rich blue.
Mrs. J. J. Astor. - In this flower may be seen an approach to a double, pink-coloured Violet. A flower is shown in the plate between two blooms of Marie Louise.
Mrs. Arthur. - A new variety at present considered better than Marie Louise, which it much resembles. A few plants should be given a trial.
Mrs. D'Arcy. - Another new sort with flowers of a distinct shade of mauve.
Neapolitan. - A lavender-coloured flower with white eye. One of the very best for forcing.
New York. - A variety much like Marie Louise, except that the flowers are a shade of mauve.
The best double white Violet is Comte de Brazza, also known as Swanley White. The flowers are very fine, but in some districts the plants show a weakness in constitution. This variety is illustrated in the plate.
