This is one of the new plants to be distributed next spring by the Messrs Veitch; it was exhibited and much admired at the great show at Nottingham. It is a hybrid between D. picta and D. Weirii, and partakes of the character of both parents, having the white spot of D. picta and the ground colour of D. Weirii. It is very free-growing, and when young makes a fine plant for table decoration.
