We now come to the

which, at a comparatively recent period, boasted but few varieties, but are now a most extensive class, and extremely delicate. Of these take Alcine, Archduke Charles, Carmin Superbe, Countesse de Molore, Cramoisie Superieure, Desfontaines Fabvier, Jenny Colon, Madame Bureau, Miellez, Napoleon, and Sulphurea Superba; these being very distinct varieties and free growers. From these we proceed to the

These include several remarkably tinted varieties, particularly among the lemon, fawn, and cream colours. The following selection of a dozen will be found well worth attention: Belle Alamande, Comte de Paris, Devoniensis, Eliza Sauvage, Fragoletta, Gigantesque, Nina, Pactolus, Safrano, Smith's Yellow Noisette, Triomphe du Luxunburg, and Yellow China. We were going to observe that all these China and Tea-Scented would grow well in pots and force, but as we have elsewhere shown that there are none that cannot be forced or grown in pots, it would be idle to make any other distinction than that they are less difficult to novices than some others. The next family of importance are the

They form showy standards, because their bloom is generally abundant, and a diversity of colours is one aim in selecting them, though many of them which are most fragrant, hover between white and yellow, and are tinged with rose or sawn colours on the edges or in the centre. We take for choice,— Boulogne, Camellia Rose, Clara Wendel, Comtesse de Tolosan, Edmund Garrat, Elizabeth, Jaune Desprez, Juliet, Lemarque, Lemarque a Coeur Rose, Madam Jouvaine, and Solfartare. These will be found to be free growers, and very showy in bloom.
