Of the February meeting of the New York Horticultural Society, its Secretary says: "We shall not attempt to enumerate the many notable exhibits, a full list of which will be found in the report of our committee, but we cannot in justice overlook the display of Orchids from the houses of Vice-President Dins-more at Staatsburgh, all of which were superb; but from the collection we single out the Phalaan-opsis Schilleriana, six spikes in all, making up the largest and finest exhibit of this truly regal Orchid ever seen in New York. They betrayed the hand of a skillful cultivator in every one of their 246 flowers, all being perfect, and all making up a strikingly beautiful picture".
