With some double flowers of Anemone thalictroides, H. C. K., Tolona, Mo., writes: - "I have sent you by mail a double wild flower, found growing among the single varieties which grow very plentiful on our white oak ridges this time of the year. I would like to know the name of flower sent, and how to increase the number of plants of this double variety; if it will grow from seed, or from the roots or bulbs, the plants having small bulbs like Ranunculus bulbs."
[This pretty plant is occasionally found double in a wild state. It is propagated only by dividing the small bulbs. - Ed. G. M.]
