Clintonia elegans. - Elegant Clintonia. - A beautiful tender annual, with delicate foliage, and rich blue flowers in great profusion; six inches high; in July and August.
C. pulchella. - Pretty Clintonia. - A native of California. It is a pretty flowering tender annual, of very humble growth, only rising a few inches high. The flowers are rather larger than C. elegans, blue, with a broad white spot at the centre, stained with a rich yellow. The flower is about half an inch across. Its delicacy of growth will prevent its spreading rapidly through the country.
The Clintonias, when grown in pots in the green-house, are very beautiful.
