A colored plate in Gartenflora, suggests that these beautiful bulbs deserve more attention than they receive. Leuco-jum aestivum, the Summer Snowdrop, is well-known and appreciated. In this picture, quite as beautiful is L. Autumnale, which has red stems and pedicels supporting the white flowers. Scilla lingulata is blue; S. lingulata lilacina, lilac; and S. lingulata alba, white. Varying as S. lingulata appears to do, we may in time have as many varieties as among Hyacinths and Tulips.
