"J. C. S.," 107 East Thirty-first street, New York, writes: " Enclosed are variegated leaves of Solanum dulcamara, familiarly known as ' Bitter-Sweet.' Is the variety worth cultivating? I discovered this as a ' sport,' growing on an old plant. Will cuttings taken off now and buried secure from frost, callus and emit roots in the spring?"

[The leaves are very pretty. There are, however, so many variegated plants, that unless there is some special feature independent of variation, that would give some peculiarity to it, it is not easy to say what elements of popularity it might have. Cuttings should be taken now. - Ed. G. M].
