Mr. David Saunders, Whitneyville, New Haven, Ct., furnishes the following additional note: "I notice in the May Monthly that you mention the Double
White Deutzia crenata as a novelty. Six years ago I purchased a plant of Olm Bros, (then doing business in Springfield, Mass.) marked Deutzia crenata purpurea flora plena, which on flowering proved to be a pure white double. I have since then propagated and disseminated it considerably, so that in this locality it is no novelty. I presume it is the same variety you allude to. Please accept of a plant which I send by express."
[It is pleasant to know that this beautiful variety has found its way so extensively into the trade. - Ed. G. M.]
