Mr. Geo. G. Atwood, Geneva, N. Y., writes: " The article, p. 38, Feb. No. of the Monthly, reminds me that we had a Wistaria frutescens alba in bloom here last season. The cluster was about the size of a bunch of grapes, compact, creamy white, and profuse in bloom. The best thing about this variety is, that it is a stronger grower than the Chinese white, and is hardy here. The leaves of Chinese white curl up, which checks its growth, making it a slow climber, while the W. frutescens alba is as strong a grower as frutescens".
