The Indigoferadotua, from the descriptions received from abroad, promises to be one of those universal favorites which few plants attain. It was received but lately in England from the South of France, and is thus described by a correspondent:

"I have often remarked a disparity in the rate of progress, towards the goal of popular favor, between a new hardy flowering shrub and a new florists' flower. True it is, and a little reflection is sufficient to explain the anomaly. Our Roses, Pelargoniums, and such plants are of a fashionable throng; and the moment a new member is obtained, the graceful neophyte is paraded forth with gay, floating banners, amid the flourishing of trumpets and the noise of fame. The new flowering shrub, though possessed of the same intrinsic excellence, is less favorably circumstanced. Naturally slow in its development, belonging to no gay coterie, it does not come thus prominently before the public. It moves slowly and silently into the pathway of fame, depend, ing on time and its-own merits for patronage and position.

" I have been led to these remarks through having recently met with a beautiful new hardy shrub at the Cheshunt Nurseries. It grows naturally in Upper Nepaul, at Suemba, where it is called Dosi swa by the natives, and hence it was named by Professor Don, dosua.

"The plant is growing in the natural soil of the Cheshunt Nurseries, which is a moderately light garden loam. That it is hardy cannot be doubted, for it has withstood the two last winters, wholly unprotected, out of doors. The plant is now about four feet high, and six yards in circumference, composed of numerous long pointed shoots, resembling a dwarf Willow in general outline. More than a thousand elegant spikes of purple pea-shaped blossoms, averaging three inches in length, adorn the bush at the present time; and, judging from those still unexpanded, there would seem a line of succession long enough to continue the blooming period from this time till November. The stems continue growing during summer, and from the axil of every newborn leaf springs a spike of flowers. The leaves are composed of small oval leaflets, ranged along a tapering mid-rib, oppositely and in pairs, from eight to ten pairs of leaflets forming a leaf about three inches long.

" The Rose has long been considered the queen of flowers, and this might with equal justice be installed as the queen of shrubs. Although new, the plant is comparatively cheap, and every lover of a garden should hasten to possess it".
