The importance of this genus is so great that interest attaches to any additions, and certainly the newcomers are worthy of the attention which they have received. The red form of montana, rubens, and the late blooming white form Wilsonii, are both great acquisitions. Other new Clematises are Armandii, an evergreen species with white flowers, which appear early in April; there is a figure of it in the Botanical Magazine, T. 7897; nutans, with creamy bell-shaped, drooping, fragrant flowers in summer; akebioides, a deciduous species with trifoliate toothed leaves and small pale yellow flowers; and Gouriana, deciduous, with compound leaves and small, fragrant, creamy flowers in dense clusters.
