Having communicated this extensive collection of plants, many of which are exotics, we shall briefly state the motives which induced us, in this instance, to deviate from our general plan : 1. All these shrubs and ornamental herbs maybe easily procured from gardeners, and propagated in our climate. 2. They afford a pleasing variety of forms and colours. 3. Their flowers or blossoms will appear in succession, from the early spring to a late period in autumn ; aud, 4. There is no species here enumerated, that requires an artificial or troublesome mode of culture.
