No doubt Mrs. M. D. Wellcome is right in saying this charming plant is not so extensively grown as it should be. But we may find it advertised in many catalogues. I have at present a small plant in bloom in my greenhouse which perfumes the whole house with a very pleasing odor. Some years ago I grew a very large plant of the above-named, and trained it on a balloon trellis and always managed to get it at its best by Easter. Few plants surpass it for decoration ; it is also an excellent flower for cutting, for making bouquets, etc. The plant can be grown with almost any general collection, but it delights in a warm, moist atmosphere, with good rich soil to grow in.

[It is rather a common plant, and found in most good plant collections. - Ed. G. M].
