A very effective bed was planted, this summer, in the gardens of the Luxembourg, Paris. It consisted simply of a bed of Papyrus plants, edged with Cype rus alternifolius. The bed was raised a little in the centre, and covered with a rich mulching of decayed leaves. It was at once graceful and effective. In the same garden was an edging to a shrubbery border, formed by Centranthus ruber, and its white variety, planted alternately. This formed a very bright and pleasing belt.
