Wm. Bassett, Hammon-ton, N. J., says; " I have several times observed a secondary flower stem growing from another, on geranium Dr. Lindley. These were always smaller than the original cluster, but produced leaves and could be used for propagation the same as other portions of the plant".
[It may be worth while to note that a flower stem is only a modified branch, and, when not perfectly reduced from a branch to a flower stem, may produce weak branches, as if it were a perfect branch. Indeed it is because of just such occurrences as these that the morphologist is able to lay down the law that a flower shoot is but a modified branch, for no one has been able to get down to the beginning of the transformation. - Ed. G. M].
