This is a pretty genus of North American plants, not much cultivated, but, if properly managed, would no doubt prove a great acquisition.

Sabbatia chloiroides is found growing in Plymouth county, on the margin of ponds; it has large, showy pink flowers, in July. There is also a variety with white flowers; it is a biennial, and must therefore be propagated from the seed, which should be sown in moist ground, as soon as ripe, or early in the spring.
