I have eudeavourcd to brin;; together all tin. information which seemed likely to elucidate as far as possible some
of the difficult question- which are met With in the study of th< se plants.

'In < iiahlc • person to understand, even imperfectly. the abstruse subject- which must be mastered ln-fore

and as I have never the opportunity of acquiring a sen tititi . I do not auppoaa thai I have

or the economic branch of his art

I think it i- nut yit fully r.cognized how ultimately tin two eeieueee of botany and horticulture are

knowledge ol botany; and no botanist can be said !.. b Ul half ma-tirnf hi- subject whoM studies have
been confined to lha library and the herbarium.

For tin» reason we find that such men as IIEHBF.RT. LINOM.V, W M I H H. >IH WiMJAM and >in J, Ki MUCH, Tttriii.T, and \-» QUAY have attained a p distinction u adentifie boti
and from the same cause it -will be found, a- tinu got - on, that a large and well-Mtppoitnl, u i, ,-,., much an
absolute net tsttj to the working botani»t as a library and au herbarium.

No 1 to compare botanical descriptions of Monocotyledouous pbutts with the living

realities can have failed to meet with extreme difficulty in i thl m. or to realize the fact that an accurate
drawing is more useful than such a description as can be usually made from dried specimens.

The variation of plants is a subject that would require much space even to touch ujion ; but I may say
that 1 fully concur m the idea which was so Strongly supported by I > I


tl,. ad -.!.» papei at th. cndoMii» work on the Amarylltda.-.^ on"(Vo*ses »nd Hybrid Ilrterarixtore* in
Vegetable« "•thai the true way to test the validity of a so-called i» by propagating it from
the tendency to vary possessed by the species will be made manifest, au.l the varieties produced will «hon ÜM
observer bow far be may rely upon certain character» in Separating the specie* from others. In the same way
1 think that the surest way to teal the validity of • genus la to attempt to hybridize the member, of it with other
plants, when, if we find that they will cross readily with another belonging to an apparently different genus,
it afford» a strong presumption of the idem tj of thoaa p ..era.

This subject, however, i- surrounded with Mich a multitude of difficulties that it requires tin judgment and
..f observation of a Darwin to investigate it with fitting accuracy. Let ¡I raffia to sa) that 1 know of
no case in which • Lily has been crossed With a plant belonging to any other genus and that the ram
attempts at hybridising the true Lilies iafir as have met with very little success.

If any of the conclusions I have arrived at, a* to the classification of tin- g. uu- / ¡Hum. are not in accordance
with the views that have been expressed by others. 1 can only say that I have in all ease* endeavoured to
consider facts only, and have no preconceived theory, or desire to favour th. theorû - of others.

It may be that, as horticulturists increase in number, and our knowledge 0Í plant* in a state of nature
extends, many new facts Wring on the question will IK- discovered ; and I can easily believe that some of the
plants which no» seein to deserve specific distinction may 1M- reduced to the rank of varieties, whilst other form«
may be proved worthy of specific rank. In this case I can only say that I shall welcome any well-founded
corrections that may be introduced into the genus, as on one can IK- more sensible Iban myself of the
imperfections of my work, and no one can feel more strongly than I do thai -n. utiti. truth ¡s the first object
which ever] worker in the great field of nature should hold up as the aim of his studies.

With regard to our present knowledge of the genus I.ilium, I can say that I do not think many new
species remain to be discovered; for though I have used every means to procure plants, living or dead, from
part of the world «here Lilies are known, or arc Ukely to occur, not more than than three or four species
have been added to the genus in the last four years.

The only regions from which much novelty can be expected arc the Eastern Himalayas and the immense
tract of unexplored and difficult mountain country which surrounds our Indian empire on the north and east, and
which lies round the head-water» of the Irrawaddy, the Hramaputra, and the Yang-tse-kiang, Many years must
elapse, however, befan these (to the naturalist and ethnologist) most interesting inouiitains can IK- even partially
explored, as the extreme difficulty of the country, and the excessive jealousy and barbarism of the tribes
Which inhabit it. make this i. giOD more difficult of access than perhaps any other part of the world.

The Corean peninsula may also produce jome new species of Lily ; but though the Hora of that country
is absolutely unknown to us, ¡i may IK- expected that any indigenous plants of great beauty or horticultural
value have airead} found their way into the gardens of Japan

Having found b] experience that draxvings of plants made from dried specimens (reqajentb fail to give
a good idea of their aspect a&d character, 1 have made it my object to procure living planta of every specie*
which it Ml possible to obtain, and have had under cultivation hi my out, garden even known ipccjea

i>. m objected by some botanista (bal platea drawn from highly cultivated garden »pedmi u do not give a good

The extrau tendency to variation in nearly all the Lilies makes it imp.-s-ibh tO pit illustrations which
represent faithfully all their forms; but it has been my constant endeavour, a- well as that of MB. FITCH, to
combine truthful delineation with artistic excellence. The colouring of the plates ha>. in some few cases, fallen
short of what I could have wished; but though I have spared neither pain- or expense to gel this done as
accurately as po--ilil., there are some tints, such as the shining coral-red of /•• thnlrrif'mir»m, which cannot be
ly reproduced except in oil-colours.

The materials which I have used in working out the synonymy, distribution, and variation of the plants
have been M follows :•the dried specimen- in The public herbaria of Kcw. Paris, lay den. and Berlin ; the type

prose, and where man . id fancies couccnimg Lilies are quoted from numerous authors. I"
' purpose, however, it will only be necessary to mention a very few of U hum PAAKI
take» a leading place. Thi« charming old writer, whose • I'aradisus, or Garden of Pleasant Flowers wm


published m 1«*9, put- tlir Lilies at the commencement of hi* work, " beeau-c the Lily is the more stately
flower among manie;" and after describing the Crown Imperial, which, "for his stately bcautifulncs», dssorroth
the first place in this our garden of delight." proceed* to enumerate the »peri«•- known to him. which are
described with wonderful accuracy in the quaintest of Elizabethan English. IVktn-on mention- five varieties of the
• Martagón Imperial " (I,. Martagón).•" the ipotted Martagón of Canada " (/,. rnaadense). which had bee» already
introduced to Europe at this early period ; •'the early red Martagón <ir Martagón PompoOJ " (L. pomponium) :
•' the red Martagón of Constantinople" (L. ehalcedomcum), " the bright red Martagón of llungarie " (¿. earnietietm) ;
and '* the yellow spotted Martagón " (/.. pyrenaieum). He gives rough though characteristic woodcuts of these
plants, ami MU Dtkmi the " place " or habitat, the " time" or season of flowering, and the " names " or symmyms
of each. Of the nmbauate Lilies he mentions six varieties, di-lingui-hing clearly between L croeeum (the "gold
red Lily") and I. lulbi/erum ("the wd-bulbed Lil\'\) He then describes two varieties of the white Lily,
which complete the list of those known to him.

K ivirrr.R in the ' Amcciiitatcs Academic««,' pubiiahed in 1712, mentions several species of Lilies, annum
which, though they were ignored or overlooked hy LINN»'-. I., cordifnltum. L spfionim, and/,, ligrinum can
probably be recognized.

LINNJXS, iu the 3rd edition of hi- "Sy-tema I'lanturuiu ' (176S), itacriboe nine species, »is. /,. candidam.
I., biilbi/erum, L, pompomum, L. chalcedomaun. L. tuperlmm, L. Martagón, I. ennadrnsr, !.. philadelphicum, and
/.. Itamtchatkrnte. He treats as varieties several plants which arc now ranked as -¡HC'IC-, .mil includes one,
L. kamschatkentr, which we now refer to the genus FritMaria.

TlTOMMMtOj who «pent many jcar- iu Japan, published, in 1784, his ' Flor» Japonic»,' in which the
following ipeeiea are described :• L. candidum = /,. Iimgißorum ; ¡..japomcum ; L. pompouium, probably •=/,, eallosnm ;
I,, bulbi/erum, ?=fc. elegant; L. tuperbum, rW£, tpetiosum-, L. eanadtnte, ? = f• Ilantoni; L philadelphicum,
?=X. elegant. He seems to have determined to make all the species he found in Japan agree with those
described h\ l.iw irs; and, in consequence, we are unable to identify with certainty several of them; but, in
the second volume of the 'Transactions of the Linncan Society,' he gives further details of some of his species,
and describes /,. tpeciatum, L. longi/orum, and L. eardi/olium. Still later he published, in the ' Memoirs ' of the
Imperial Academy of Sciences of St. Petersburg, 1811, an "Examen Lilioruni Japonicorum," in which seven
species are descrilied, and three badly figured, viz. L. lancl/alinm, L longißtrum, and /.. maculatum. Most of
TiJUMBBRO*a descriptions are so vague, or taken from such imperfect or abnormal specimens, that they cannot
be relied on with certain!) ; and it was only by examining the specimens in his herbarium that I was able to
make out that L. maculatum and L. lancifol'wm arc not good species, and that L. elegant is what has been
hitherto known as L. Thunbergianum.

Though WALTER, MICHAUX, CAWLER. DON, FISCHER, and others added one or more species each to
the genus, no great increase to our knowledge was obtained till VON SIEIIOLD went to Japan and sent home
numerous specimens of Lilies, both living and dried, about 1830. All those which he found were euuuu-rated
m SnaOLS ¡mil 7,1 -CCAKINI'S • Flor« Japónica,' where L. eallotum is first described, and a fair account given of
the other -pecio- known to him.

ROKMEH and SoRQLfflu's ' Systcma Vegetabiliura ' (1849) and KINTH'S • Enunieratio ' (1843), being
merely descriptive catalogues of planta, need not be referred to. except to say that /.. Hallichiantttu was first
described by ScMI i.n -

Tlie first attempt at a monograph of the genus is the " Mémoire sur les espèces du genre Li»," by
H STAB, published in IHI7. in the nineteenth volume of the ' Mémoires de l'Académie Royale de BalgUne

This memoir i numerates all the species known at that time, and gives careful ascriptions, with
synonym», history, and datailed untrnetioni for the cultivation of the varions species. It mu bj f.• the most


complete and Useful account of the genus until quite recently, as it inelmle» all SlSROLn'» discoveries
h- bss the work of a skilled horticulturist and fair botanist, was based on careful nl>-. rvatioos of living |
which, as I have before said, are indispensable for the study of Lilies.

In ls"o, PROFESSOR DITHARTRï. of Paris, was attracted by the unequalled collection of liwug Lilies
formed by HKKK M \\ LBICKVMH, of < arl-nihc : anil, wishing to make them better known to the horticultural
and scientific world, he published, in the second scries of the Journal of the •Société Centrale d'Horticulture ' of
France, hi* " Observations sur le Genre Lis," an elaborate and most careful paper, of 149 pegea, in which the
| and classification of the genus is elaborated with much detail, and careful descriptions in French are
of all the species then known.

Almut the same time MR. J. G. BAKER, of Kew, published,in a scries of articles in the 'Gardeners'
Chronicle' for 1871, a synop-i« of the genus, which has had an enormous influence in making it lutter known
and appreciated by horticulturists, and was the principal snide I had in taking up it- -tudy.

The direct result of the labour- of Mum, n 111\, DCCHAKTRE, and BAKER has been so great
that 1 do not think there is any genus of plants, having so cxtcn-ive a range of distribution, which has
been studied with as much completeness, or about which so little remains to be discovered, a- the Lilies ;
and, tl n is much to be done before the mimui.e of their derulopOMBl and variation can be said
to be fully known, jet I do not think the publication of a Monograph on them is so premature as it
would be in the case of -1 othi i wide-ranging genera of plants.

I'Ror. SERKVO \V ITSOH bu recent); published, in the fourteenth volume of the 'Proceeding* of the
American Academy of Arts and Sei«mes,' July 1879, a Revision of the Nortli-Ainerican Liliácea*, which gives:
a complete description of the Lines of that country, and which, I am glad to see, agrees very nearly with my
eOOClusktM SB to Use species and varieties.

Besides the writers already mentioned, the late I'mo. Kvui. Kocn has published, in the ' Wochen-
schrift für Gart ne ri i und Pflanzenkunde ' for July and August 1979(1 memoir of the sasnaa, in whieli he gins
a key to their cla•ificatioii, together with critical nun- LU their synonymy ami distribution.

MR. J. II. KIU:I. MI:, of Haarlem, whOSS nurseries probably contain a larger number of Lilies than any
others in the world, has published s ' Notice sur quelque- espèces M tiriétés de Lis," in which seven! specie« are
described and figured•auioiiL' then /.. Il'ittti, /.. /liiiiilwItUt, and L. tigriiutm fore pleno.

In America, DH. KKLI.OC.I. has d several of the western spejCSSJ in the 'Proceedings of the
California Academy of Natural Science;' and many notes on hybridization and cultivation have appeared
in various periodicals.

ïlic horticultural journals of the last fen ¡-ccially the 'Gardeners' Chronicle ' and the ' Garden,'
also contain an immense Dumber of valuable notes concerning Lilies.

PROF. DUCHADTH, of Pari«, has published, in the ' Bibliothèque de l'fiooll di- Haut.- 1.- >
vol. vii. 1873, and vol. xiv. 1979) two mo-t remarkable memoir- on the bulbs of Lilies, in which Un n
stages of their development from the seed are mo-t carefully described and figured with extreme care and

In MB. BAJHB'S revision of the Liliaccic. which a the latest as well a« by far the most complete and
systematic arrangement of the order, the Lilie» arc included with the Tulip», Pritillariea, Oakcbnrti, Erythroola,
and Uoydiaa in the tribe Tulipc;c, and fonn a Mry homogeneous genus, few »I* the plants included in it being
aberrant from t) rpa It ha« been subdivided into five »uli'_-. mr.i. of which font arc natural and well-
marked ; bail there arc a few plants which do not seem to me to fall conveniently int.» either of these subdiw

The characters by which we can beat cjaaalf] the Lilie» are taken Ana the bulb, and from the form and
position of the flowers, The Brat subgenuc, CaraNecrûnaea of Endlicher, is a very distinct and well-marked one,
and comprises only two nearly -ill« d though perfectly distinct specie«, /.. ¡/¡¡/nnleum and L. conU/dium. The bulb
In these i» formed of a few thick clos« ly comprisse .1 «cale», produced into kng petiole«, which bear a large cordate
orovut. shining green leaf. Until the bulb becomes strong enough to Bower, which ¡» at about it» aixth or«
•ear, then i or other leave» than these basal once; but the flowering stem, when produced, absorba the
whole life and substance of the bulb; and the plant perishes completely after flowering and maturing seed, which
i» produced very abundantly. In some case*, however, offsets are formed at the base of the old bulb, which in
time grow to a flowering sin. Now this manner of reproduction, namely by seed», appears to me the natural and
regular course in this subgenus] for though in cultivation the reproduction bj offsets is the more common,
vet in it» natta foresta í. esjmfetm appeared tome to grow a» though all the plants were seedlings, and 1
found no groupa of offsets about the boat of tl Id stems, .1- one does in garden planta. 1 should not, therefore,
consider that either of these »pecic» i» a true perennial, and am inclined to think that many other Lilies n»ually
considered perennial are not BO,strktlj speaking; for I have found that many of them, after being brought
to tin highest start» of perfection, and baring produced seeds freely, die away unaccountably, .1» though they
had fulfilled their function, and had by the act of seeding exhausted all the vitality of tin- bulbs.

The next subgenus, Eulirmn of F.ndluhcr, i» characterized by long tubular (lowers, the segment» of which
are hardly reflexed, except at their tips. It includes, according to \ln BAKBB'S arrangement, the following
specie»•/.. pUSffAun», U'alliehiaiium, mlyherritHse, nipalntsc, hrigijtorum, Broten!, japomewn, rauditlum, belladonna,
and WaihiwjtumanHm. Now, as to the tirsi six of these plants, there can be no question about the propriety of this
arrangement, a» they seem to me to he M rj possibly only subspecM -. and oomprisa ill ihe representatives of the
family found in the eastern tropics or Oriental region•the *i\lh, /. liraient, being an Outlying representative in
Japan. Hut 1 think that /.. japameum has more affinity with /.. auralum, placed by MR. li «KKK in another group;
L. atibábame ¡a probably a synonym of it; I. eswaSabm (our common whin Lily)seeana to mc to have sufficient
pcculiiiritii- in structura and habit to justify it* M parution from the Eulir'tnn group ; ami /, U'ailmHjIi.iiianitm I
should be inclined to place, with two near allies or subspecies, in another section.

In the subgenus BkBrioa thus restricted we find a very different bidb-striicturc, consisting of a large
number of thinner pointed scales, which beau narrow linear leaves only, in their earliest stages of growth and
throw up steins at the age of two or three yean, flowering (real) and ripening seed. Usually, however. the\
produce a» well a number of »mall boJMeta, which are formed either at the base of the old seal,•-, at the i,ase of
the stem, or all along its subterraneous portion, and frupnutly at various pointa 00 ÜM Item ahme ground.
dl\ when any injurj ha» cheeked or arrested the formation of flowers,

Hie plants included i- | [tries seam, therefore, to he trae perennials ; that is to ley, they possess

are found within the tropic», and appear to require, and to thrive under. .1 [renter degree of Ina. than Other

/,. I'arryi, though resembling the Eulirion group to a certain extent in their flowers, are so different is
the structure of their hull.», that tin \ must also stand in a group apart from any other.

The next section is Archclirinn of Baker, in which he includes /.. ti'jr'mum. tprciosum, «uratum, and orypelalum.

Uaitftgons, whilst I. nryprtalnm is an aberrant form, differing entire!} in bulb and habit, and hiring Di
but the position of tht flowers to bring it near auralum. If this Section il to stand, I think it should include
L.japonirum, wliieh is certainly nearer to nur at urn than to the Eulirion Lilies.

The next rangeant is hoKrian of Baker, including all th flowers sod falcate
segments not relieved. Pbnr of the species, comprising it. viz. bulbi/cruta. eroetum, elegant, and Jiruricum, arc

»m INTItom'íTION

To recapitulate briefly, I find that il» subgenera «hieb haw been proponed in this genus arc not,
except in the case of Orrfiwr»,««., really natural; or if they arc natural as regards certain species they
are not so for othcni I should therefore prefer to drop tluu. entirely. IV genus is not so Ian?.- or so
divers« a* to require the maintenance of artificial group» such as these seem to be; ami though 1 will indicate
i!a affinities of the different specie-, together with the principal characters l.y which they-may be recognized,
1 «ill not pretend to rapport an arrangement which cannot, a* I think, U- dissected by a careful obeemr
without revealing imperfection- and errors,

The Lilies have a somewhat peculiar gaographica] distribution, being band nearly all over the temperate
Bom of the Old and New Worlds, bot, with the exception of three or four species (all of which belong to the
AWIWM section), nowhere within the tropics. As far as our presea! knowledge intends, they an absent from
the immense tract of country between tin- Caspian Sen and Waatern China, though the mountain-range- of
Turkestan may be found to contain Bonn as yet unknown speciet,

The climatic conditions which seem to favour their growth arc a moderately cold winter of short
duration, and a warm spring and summer with considerable moisture. Thus wc find them absent from those
parts of Europe and Asia which are subject to perennial or periodical seasons of severe drought. The two
centres in which their headquarters seem to be arc Japan, with about twelve indigenous species, and California,
with eight or nine. The Himalaya Mountains, where the climatic and other conditions stem very favourable
are not BO prolific as might be expected, only five specie» occurring there, whilst in Europe wc have leren,
and in the Eastern States of North America five or six.

Except in the case of the Kuliriim group (which are subtropical), none of the sections seem to favour one
Country or continent more than another; but the bulbs of Lilies belonging to different sections seem to have
similar modifie;ii.ions in the same country. For instance, all those with stolouiferous bulbs are North-American,
and all those with large oblique bulbs are Californien : whilst no European or Asiatic Lily has a bulb which
could be mistaken for an American specie» by any one who was at all conversant with their peculiarities.

The annexed Map will show, as nearly a* is possible on so small a scale, the habitat of the known
species, thiimdi it is of course understood that the boundaries of their distribution cannot be indicated by the
colouring when several of the species occur together in one district.

It will be noticed that there are some curions anomalies in their distribution, which coincides with that
of no other genus which I can call to mind. In the Enlirian group We have a case which resembles that of
many animals and birds in the same region. We find /,. nilyherrifHtt and /.. pkMppwrnsr confined to isolated
mountain-ranges, and separated from any of their congeners by nearly 1000 miles of sea, or by a great extenl
of land, which, being unsuited, on account of its climate, to the requirements of Lilies, is a perfect liarrier
against the extension of their range.

In the same way wc find many birds confined to the isolated hill-rc/inns of Southern India, whose nearest
allies are in the Himalaya Mountains; but if the analogy between birds and plants holds good, 1 should expect
to find Lilies in the high mountains of Jnva and Sumatra rather than in Luzon, whose fauna is less akin to that
of South-eastern Asia than the faunas of Java, Sumatra, and Borneo.

Another point worthy of notice is the great difference between the Lilies of the Atlantic and Pacifie States•
thus establishing the fact, which has been so clearly shown by I'aor. ASA CHA Y and SIK Joexra HoOKBK,
that the zones of distribution of plants in the United States arc longitudinal rather than latitudinal, and thut
the flora of the Pacific Mates has inin-h less in common with that of the Eastern States than would IN-expected

Tliough I have given dh-ectiom for Ute cultivation of Uw various kind* of Lifica in the body of aie
work, \« t I think sonic general rein irk- on the subject may be of use.

It i- evident] from the large «mount of correspondence which has appeared on tin- inbjeet in die papers, that great diversity of opinion exista cm the question; and though sow writers profess to
be able, b> following OUI certain théorie« of culture, to ensure suco »s, yet experience ha» shown that no amount
of care or skill will enable us to grow Lilies mile• the natural conditions of climate are favourable.

I kin>" of mi plants which -nin t<> liave such uncertain and incomprehensible constitution» (if that term
can \K fitly applied to plants) as Lilies ; and I am more and more inclined to believe that in HMD] eases they arc
nut truly perennial. Whether this is the case or not, it is a fact (which no experienced Lily-grower will deny) that
ju-t ¡is the perfection of dcNclnpuicut i- attained, and the plant appears to he as nourishing as possible, a rapid
decline in vigour comes on, without any apparent cause, and is followed by death, or by such complete
exhaustion and collapse that any further pains and care are in most cases thrown away.

These remarks must not, however, be applied to all Lilies, a» there arc several species (such as
/• caiiilitliim, /,. lnH>i/imw, I.. Afar/ago», and /-. califarmtum) which may be grown with reasonable care almost
anywhere, while others (such a» L Caletttti, I.. H'aUichiaitum, L. arrnactum. and /,. irashim/loiiinnnm) have
repeatedly haftlcd the skill of the most experienced horticulturists.

lleforc considering the causes of this want of success, it will be well to examine the general oondr
under which Lilies grow in their native countries; and there arc three points worthy of especial notice : •

First, a considerable degree of summer heat is requisite; and though this may be accompanied, as in
Central Europe and the United Stat. re cold in winter without injury, yet we do not titid Lilies thrive
»ell in a cold, wet summer

Secondly, we find that a «rood deal of moisture is necessary during the growing-season, either in the form
of rain or mist. Long and severe droughts an- nut characteristic of any country where Lilies are abundant ; or
if they occur (a- in parts of California and Southern Euroi>c), we find Lilies only at considerable elevation-. Of
growing in marsh] and moist places.

Lastly, it seems to IK- almost universally the ease, that the partial shade afforded by grass and weeds, or
overhanging shrub-, i- a iiece•arj condition for their health; and perhaps this in cultivation i« Overlooked more
often than any thing else. I have repeatedly found some varieties thriving in out-of-the-way comers, where they
WON almost buried in rank wood* and gra*s and ipiite uueared for; whilst the same plants in rich soil, but
exposed to the -un. »en- weak and uiihcalth).

Protection from wind, from spring frosts, and from the baking of the -oil by exposure to sun, arc, I think.
the most important points to be Considered ; and if combined with these conditions WS can obtain moisture at the
root, and a Considerable degree of warmth in summer and autumn, there i- little duubt of -nice• with the majority
of species.

Hieb -ml. bowevt i. i- of no u-c, unie.- it i- sweat an 1 »ell drained, ,i« One find-, in pot-cultivation, that

moHade/p/-*»! and caiidiJum. do best in a rather heavy loam, >ct the right choree of moisture M redi) more
important (o their well-being than the nature of the Mil.

The great drawbacks we have to contend with in England are:•the heavy Mid raina of autumn and
H«, winter, acting on the soil at a time when thi mOBl inactive, and tbOTcbj frcipicntU causing them to
rot ; and the late spring fro-t-, which injure the shouts when fast appearing above ground.

Perfect drainage «ill no doubt help the plants to endure the fint uf these evils; and artificial protection
will secure them, in i I, against the second; whilst a liberal mulching of light m inure, leaves, or oocoanut-
tibre. will keep the ground from becoming dried up in rammer.

'Hie insect |>e»ts which affect Lilies QQgfl severely are l/hide», or green lliea (which arc most injurious to
them «Inn grown under glass, and mast be thorough!; kept down bj fumigation and syringing), and a m

sim-t the preceding »a- written, we have experienced in England one of the most protracted and -eure
winters, followed by one of the coldest and wettest rammen ever known; and tin result- hare be a (as I anticipated )

the cultivation of these favourite ¡liants ha- received .1 -. vere check. Perhaps the ino-t remarkable case was that

If I were about to recommence the cultivation of Lilies, I should build a house or frame on purpose lot
them, arranged, as nearly M possible, in the following manner:•

A span-roofed pit should be made in a .sheltered situation, with the ends farina north and south, sunk
about three feet in the «round, and having an entrance at one end, with a narrow path down the centre. The
lights should lie made either to slide down and take off like the lights of a fr.inu . or si hinged that the pit could
be completely thrown open when desired. I think this important, because the complete exposure of the plants to
springand summer rains when not too violent i- of more benefit to them than any amount of syringing or watering ,
and by lifting or drawing off the lights, and replacing thrm with some shading material in hot -unny weather, we
avoid the burning and drying up of the soil, which is so difficult to prevent1 under a fixed glass roof.

No heating-apparatus would be necessary, as the dight frost which might penetrate the hou-i m vci \
severe weather would not injure the plants when in a dormant condition. The brick sides of the pit would be
about a foot or eighteen inches above the ground-level, and might have ventilators of pierced zinc to break the
draught. The beds would be built up with brick to about ground-level; and the height of the ridge from tin-
earth should I« not less than seven h et. or more if it be desired to grow many plants of /.iVrnin auralum. The
beds would be composed of a drainage of !l or III inches of broken bricks, stone, or tiles, covered by some soils
of good soil laid over then, and filled in with about two feet of a compost consisting of alxml half light loam,
one quarter coarse sand, and one quarter loose fibrous peal, well bmken up and mixed together. A part of the
beds night have a mixture without peat, and another part should be composed of half peat and a quarter leaf-
mould ; hut care must be taken that any leaf-mould used for Lilies is thoroughly rotten and free from fungoid growth.
Decayed cocoanut-fihrc has been found an admirable substitute for leaf-mould, and may even be used instead
of peat, though I should prefer the latter when of good quality. A good sprinkling of broken crocks, small
stones, or «hau coarse gravel may be mixed with advantage through the whoh miss of soil ; and a mixture of
broken charcoal is also advantageous, as until the roots of the plants have occupied the soil there is always a
risk of its becoming sour; and I believe thai charcoal will not only prevent this, hut also enrich the soil

If the house could be planted with bulbs already well rooted and established in pots, I should prefer it. as
•nWBg a number Of purchased bulbs there will «l\\a\» be many failure-, and tin re is some danger of their decay
affecting the soil, [f however, the entire stock of plants was purchased, I would not plant them out till they had
begun to make root, as it frequently happens that bulbs which hare ben lifted and -evenly checked lie donnant
for several months; and when in this state they are likely to rot if kept at all wet,

In a part of the house a bed should IK- kepi for plunging plants in pot*, MI that newly imported bulbs

all plants which are well rooted and growing freely, and more modérate supplies to the rest. A good syringing
when the bOUSC is shut up in the evening during the spring and summer months is also of great advantage.

During hot »uniiv Weather the light- should be removed, and replaced by a shading of tiffany or some
similar material ; and care iuu»t be taken on DO occasion to bum the plants by keeping the lights on without
-hid. . for though some of them will stand a great deal of direct sunshine without apparent injury, yet sei
results orten ensue.

him, he will be abli to -el.«t foi himself tho.e -pceics which he prefers, Uanj Lilies are muntisfactory plants

MR \VIIM.\- esperinu ut promises, a considerable an . i-certainly • verj interesting one.
I am not, however, inclined ti> believe that he will succeed in establishing all or nearly all the Lilies in a wood
any more thuii in a garden ; and. considering the varied nature of their habitats, it i» not to be expected that he
should in all cases succeed.

A theory which lus bien started and written on at great length by a correspondent of 'The Garden'
signing himself "DOMKMK," a-to tin annual renewal of tin bulbs of Lilies, i», I belie*«, founded on an entire
mhepprchenstoo of the functions of their bulbs.

Tin- "liter, as far a» 1 can understand lii- very lengthy communication*, maintains that the bulb of a Lily
i~ completely absorbed by the flowering stem, and entirely renewed annually by a new growth of - cab - in its
interior, lie reason» therefrom that the proper season to lift and transplant the bulbs of Lilies is immediately
after the flowers have withered. The generally received opinion that the leaves of the plant have considerable
influence in maturing the irrowth of the bulb, anil assisting it to store up the necessary nourishment for the next
year's Bower-Stem, is ridiculed by this writer; hut, in the correspondence which took place in -Tln- Garden,' his
theory "a-. 1 think, successfully disproved by several of our best Lily-growers. I believe myself that a coiitiuunii-
crowth of MW seules from the avis of the bulb is constantly taking place at all seasons, though much more
actively in the spring and summer, and that thi- growth only ceases «lieu the bulb has attained its maximum
developnienl or wlnn checked by removal, or by sonn- other cause affecting its health. Tile development of the
seedling plants a- examined by M. DITIMIITRS certainly liears out this opinion.

The propagation of Lilies is effected in various ways :•tirst, by division of the bulbs, which increase
rapidly in most of the European and in many of the American and Japanese species ; secondly, by planting the
bulbWta which are formed in the axils of the leaves of L. lufrimtm and L, bttlblferum, and at the crown of the
bulb or on the base of the stem in many other species ; thirdly, by seed, which, though a tedious and sonn «hit
dillii ult process, i-, in many cases, the only way by which an increase can be obtained. For instance, L. H'ashing-
lonianum, IhuiMilli, ruftimbiantitti, polyphylluR». Caletbtri, philaJrlphieum, never, as far as I have seen, increase
themselves bj division or bulbhts, whilst in the case of L. giganteum, corJi/olwm, lemtifulium, and pulthrlliim seeding
seems to be the normul manner of reproduction. Judging from the group» in which we find Lilies growing in
their native habitat», many specie», sueh as L. croeeum and L. pyrrnaicum, which in gardens increase more readily
by offsets, are propagated by seed under natural conditions.

Germination takes place very irregularly in different species, and according to the time at which the seeds
are sown. As a rule, it may be said that, if sown as soon as ripe, the seed will germinate in spring ; but under
gla^- it often conies up sooner, a- in tin ca«c of I., letini/nlium and L lonyijtoruta. If tin seed H kept till spring
before rawing, it usually lies a year before germinating, and sometime« lange) . uni if more than -ix months old,
it very often «loe» not come up at all.

Tlie ont] seeds of U ca«didum which I ever »owed came up in September, at the sann- nun u the
autumnal leave» of the parent plant ; and I have observed that the germination of the seeds of other bulliou-
plants usually takes place at the -.inn turn a- tin• vt ¡fetation of the same plant. The seeds should IK sown ill
box« » or in a frame, about a quarter of an inch deep, in light soil : and the ground should I"- made tolerable tirm
under them. If sown in pot», tli.y must be kept plunged, or the young bulbs will soon lie Starved ; and as »INIII
a» »Irons enough they should 1H- turned out into a frame,

\ seedling UHH gron very -lowly for two or three year», they should not lie planted in till open ground
at tirst . ami careful watch iiiu-l be kept against slug-, which will devour the kam >.f -eon- in a single night.

two species, such a- A. /uMyyfi/ruiw ami I., lenul/olium, will Bowel the third Mann after sowing; hut the majority,
and especially UM Martagón group, take six to ten years before they attain flowering lue.
It lias been supposed by SOnU that the constitution of Japan Lilies may he improved by raising then from in this country ; and then ¡s no doubt something to be said for this theory ; hut, putting aside tin- extreme
care and patience which are necessary, I think experience shows that deterioration of size ami colour is tli
rc-ult. Certainly (lie Japan Lilies which are cultivated by thousand* in Holland are inferior in the size and
tint of their flower- to those im]>orted from their native count I) ; and though 1 believe this is not the CUC in
i, v,t thecthnati of the New-England Stain i- much more like that of Japan than is the climate of
Holland or England. I have not noticed that the home-grown bulbs ot* /• auralum, which have succeeded so
admirably in the garden of MR, M'lsrosn, are inure easy to grow in my own garden than imported one- ; and
though I believe H•M, WATBHEH anil NoiiLi: ha\e found the soil of their nurseries very favourable for the
nation of Japan Lili' -. yet I believe we shall always be more or Us- dependent on a foreign supply to keep
Up our Mock.

A fourth mode of propagation is bj -. and consists in pulling off the scales of sound bull» and
planting 'hem separately, when, in some cases, small bulhlets are formed at the base of the scale, which in time
grow to lie bullís. This mode is most commonly adopted with /,. s/ieaotum and /. anratim.

The hybridisation of Lilies bus bien attempted by many cultivators, but seem- to have produced little le-ult .
and In many > a-. -. when all mi in- have been taken to remove the anthers of the seed-bearing plant before
maturity, the produce has shown little variation from the parental type ». Soma of the varieties ofOrangt tifies
now in cultivation are supposed to haw d bv crossing /.. rttyans with /. trod "«i ; and plant- are -ometimes

berbwrtl : inil though it i- not no« in cultivation, tlure can be no doubt that MR. I.EICIITI.IN i- right.

The habitat of the plant, however, »till remained unknown; for though it is certainly found in Japan,
no travellers had met with it in a wild Mute, lad it might be. like several other*, only introduced to the gardens
of Japan.

v months ago I was able to show a plant of tlii- ipeCWI m tlower to I'i I VMMOWICZ, who
at once recognized it a- what he had discovered at Victoria Gulf and previously supposed to be I- arrnaceum.
It is quite possible tliat the plant may have been known lufore, al il Ml 01 rtainly sent to America

origin has now been, I hope, -.iu-1'.n torily cleared up.

The culture of this plant hi M easy that I have no dnnht it will soon become batter known in gardens.

ripen lead in this country, it may be propagated by means of scales aud offsets. It is the earliest in growth of any
kind I know, and succeed» well in a peaty soil which doc» not become hot and dry in summer. The only seed

It appear« tu ¡rim' he«! in a light and «and) thongfa eool ai -oil. but is very apt to die
after flowering strongly. I am. Indeed, inclined to think that the bulb« of thi« l.ily era mit truly perennial,

'TMIE charming Lily here described has a curious history, and affords an additional proof of the neccssit«,
of studying such plants from living rather than from dried specimen*. When introduced to Europe
a few years ago it was considered a new specie-;, und figured as such in the ' Botanical Magazine.'
PKOFKSSOR MVXIMOWHZ. on Melng the plant in flower at MK. WIMON'I in I*7.*>. told mc that it was
known to him in Japan, and had been regarded as /.. japomcam of 'lliunberg. To make this certain.
Mi». BAKF.R was good enough to procure, through the kindness of PROIV ARUSCHOUG. of Upsala, the
specimens of Lilies collected by TIII'NBEH« in Japan, after examining which we both agreed that the original
plant named japomcum by him was identical with what had hitherto been known a* Krameri, and not. as was
supposed, with /,. Hrnirnii.

I have little doubt that the Lily described as /,. belladonna, from a drawing made by MR. HANSO.N of
Ntfl York, and kindly sent me by him, UMUt also be referred to this species ; for though I have not seen the plant
from which tin- drawing was mude. I have seen forms of t.. japomcum very closely resembling it. Both
/. Krameri and /.. Mladoima have been supposed to be hybrids : but from what 1 can leant about the
plant in its native country. 1 think there is little doubt that it i< a distinct species, occurring abundantly in «,,•,,.
parts of Southern Japan.

PROFKSSOR MAMMOWU'Z did not see it himself in a wild state, but had it brought him from a
considerable elevation ¡a the mountains of Senoun, in the island of Nippon: and MR. T. HOGG, an Am
gentleman who has Knl BOOM large quantities of bulbs of this plant, says that it grows wild near Lake
Biva. on the hills of Kioto, in South-west Japan.

Until 1*7« it was, owing to the difficulty of importing its small and rather delicate bulbs alive, one of the
rarest 1 .ilu - in our gardens; but large importations having bun received in Bret-rat« condition during the
-, it ha- been sold at a more moderate price than formerly, and has Wome better known.
If health) bulbs can be procured, there seems to be no particular difficulty about growing them, though
1 must eonleu that no has, to ui) knowledge, rivalled MR. WuMK in BH •llCceaalul treatment of this :

In hi* hands it attain» a height of 3 feet, or even more, and produces one to four or five (lowers of a great
site and beauty ; but more commonly, in my own garden, it assumes much dwarfcr proportions, as in
the variety dUtingui-hcd by MR. BAKER as Uamanum If cultivated under glas-, it should be treated
exactly like L. auratum ; but it may IM- grown tad flowered out of dootl with «ucees*. It* propaj
at present is little understood, a» offset* are not produced freely, and the seed», if obtained. »eem to lie a rev
in the ground before germinating.

lonir in cultivation, that we havi mi rerord of how and when it was introduced. It may perhapi
indigWlOOa to this country, though more probably, where found in un apparently wild state, it has escaped from
cultivation. It is found all over Western, Central, and Eastern Europe to Siberia, as far mirth as Lit. til . ami in
aucasiu und Oural Mountains, growing in hilly districts in meadows or on the borders of woods, among
long arass, up to an elevation of 5000 or 60oo I,, I

Tin varieties of /.. Martagón are numinous ; hut, as far as I know, only two are found in a wild

•ecoodly, /.. yMrtwi of Sprengel'* 'System» Vcgctabiliuin,' figured by JACQUIN in the ' Flora Austríaca,' and
alto in the Bot Mag. pL 1634. This is the ooe luotf common«] seen in gardens, and is the kind S 1

I In. White Martagón, of which I have given a representation on the Plate, ¡a another ury prettj roricty,

ug, which are occasionally seen at the present time, but were much belter known twi
ago (ride Parkinson's ' Paradisns,' 31, when a long account of them is giren).

Thererj distinct variety of this plant usoaUy called Mmaiirum, though it had been previous!) described

'TMIE plant here described is one which, until quitt recently, was little known in Europe; and as it has
been confused by author« with another species (L. tetiui/olium), I have taken an early opportunity
of figuring it.

Originally described and figured in SIKBOLD'« fine folio work on the Flora of Japan, it was afterwards
discovered by PROFESSOR MAXIMOWICZ in Amurland and Mantrhuria, ami introduced by ÜAAOI to the Botanic
Garden of St. Petersburg in 1859. The continental variety which lu sent, King in some points unlike the
Japanese plant figured by SIBBOLO, was supposed by DR. RBGEL to be the ¡Mium ¡mmi/urn of RKOOI TI*. .,IHI «a-
rigured by him under that name in tin ' (int. ntlora' for 1865.

This variety was afterwards described by MR. HAKER in the 'Journal of the Limuan Society,' from a
drawing of MR. LEICIITLIN'S. as a variety of L. t>mii/altum. On a nibieigUBf examination of the pleut in a
Dring (Beta, and comparison with dried specimen* from Japan, however, MR. MAKER agreed with me that it
i- real!« ••t distinct fri.m Si K HOLD'S species, though the callous bract*, «hieb in hi» figure are proliahly somewhat
exaggerated, are hardly visible in many specimen».

PnorBSSOR MAXIMOWICZ of St. Petersburg, to whom I applied for information, confirms this opinion,
and Uli- me that this variety, which he calls pumilum, is smaller and lower than the Japanese variety, ha- fewer
flowers, broader leaves, and lc*s conspicuous bracts. He found it rare in Mantchuria, in the low flats along the
•ri nver; l)ut more .ommon on drier meadow« further up the «»me river, where it flower» in the month of
July. The Japanese plant he fouud abandantlj round Nagasaki, at ¿00-3000 feet elevation, in tuountain-pasturc»,
«hen it (lowers from July to the end of September•also in grassy valley» at the foot of volcanic mountains in
Simaban ; hi did not find it, however, in the island uf Nippon.

Simoi.ii tells u* that he found it growing, in company with such plants as SmilaetM, IstpiJUa, t'crouita,
and various grasses, on the slopes of volcanic mountains. He also states that the bull» arc collected and eaten
like those of /.. Hijrmum, either boiled or roasted. They are very nourishing and agreeable in taste, and are
used in a preserved state a« a remedy for chronic coughs.

As an ornamental plant this species has little to recommend it. It* flower» arc small and dull in colour
compared with must Lilies; and though it is quite hardy and easy of culture, it i- not likely to find favour iu tin
majority of gardens. The specimen figured (lowered in my garden in July 1875, from a bull) sent me by
Da. lU.r.KL in the previous autumn. It produces seed in good seasons -, but, being now tolerably abundant in
cultivation, 1 have not attempted to raise it. 1 believe that most of the plants now in England arc of Russian
origin, and belong to the Siberian variety, as 1 have seen none which showed the callous bracts as distinctly as
they are shown in dried specimens from Japan.

account it 1- be»! to leave it undisturbed a« long as possible, until, either from the exhaustion of the soil or

by HABTWHO in 1848, and rcceiveil the MS. name of californic am from Dit. LINIM.I.Y AS, however,
no description was published until 1869, and a plant which hud been previously named by TOHRBY cannot
certainly be referred to this ipccta, it will IK beat to keep it under DR. KKI.I.OCG'S name, by which it is
most generally known both in America and England.

The Vtlietiei uf this species arc both numerous and puzzling ; but after watching the growth of many
plants from different sources, in my own garden and those of other*, for four seasons, 1 am inclined to believe
that not more than two or thru an worthy of description, and that even these might so change their form.
if removed to a different soil ami rlimate, that it would be hard to recognize or distinguish them, Botanista
win n naming species from dried -pceiuieiis, or after the comparison of a few plágala, are often iiu-lnl b]
characters which stem at the time good ami distinct, but which pro\c too unstable 10 rely on j so that the
confusion which prevailed amour, tin various western spun- of American Lilies would hardly have been
cleared up if it had not been for the assistance that has been derived from horticulture.

I cannot etrtainly say whether the planta named ISouryai. Hoezlii, and H'alifri come properly under
this •pedca or not. bol no living plunt out of the thousands I have examined can be referred to either
L. emadrnte or L. sitperbtim ; and though these species, or varieties of them, may extend west of the Rocky
Moimtains. yet 1 am inclined to think that all the Lilies with stohuul'i•urns bulbs from the Pacific Siati«
are forms of L. pardaltmmt.

As I shall have to give anothir Pinte of this specie«, I will leave the description of the dit:
varieties for a future article, merely stating that the one figured here, which, I believo, should stand as var.
cali/vmieiim, may always I"-- ilisiiuunishcd from the rc»l by the greater size and beauty, though smaller number,
of its Bower«, which I '1 three in number. I was informul by IIEIUI ROKZI. that it is found on the

•''Ills very fine species of Lily was first discovered by MR. H. ROEZL on the centenary of HC.VIUOI.PT'-

birtlulay in 1869, in the Sierra-Nevada range in California. He named it ¡Jlium HumMdti for
tin- reason, and not, a- ha- been wrongly stated, because it was found in Humboldt Couuty. Ile -eut I quantity
of bulbs to Mit. Litt 11TI.IN, who, with his usual gcm-ru-ity, distributed tlieni to many of the botanic and private
gardens in Europe, lie was himself the first in tbi«, as in many other instances, to (lower the plant in Europe :
and though not so fine aa it has been seen since, its beauty was at once recognized by all lovers of
Lilie*. Luge importations wen made of this plant in 1&72 and 1873, so that it has now become
i|uite common

Da. BoLAMDIR, in 'The Garden' for Jan. 3, 1874, has given so good an account of its native habitat,
that I will quote Un verbatim:•"This luge, species ha- apparently afar le•wide range than /.. H'ashimj-
tvaiamim. It occurs mainly on the more elevated portions of the foot hills of the Sierras, from 2000 to
nearly 3500 feet altitude, evidently requiring a greater amount of heat to develop its full beauty than

depth. 'I'IK ovoid bulb is very larga and strongly built; its outir largest, imbricated. Land

'pilK Oregon I.ily has been for tome time in herbaria, and by most botanists considerad n variety of
I., rmtadense ; but there can, I think, be DO reasonable doubt that it is quite distinct from that ]>hmt. and
from ¡.in\ other not so tnuch ou account of it« flowers a» because of its bulb, which resembles that of no Othl r
American «pi i H -

It is a native of the coast mid interior of the State of Oregon, Washington Territory, and British
Columbia, from aboul 10 toM \. latitude, and has hcen gathered by many explorers of thus,- ragions. I learn
IIKRR II. KOKZL that it is found on dr\ -andy plains, and on the mountains Up to 500 1000 feet elevation,
whet. la winter i- »erj -cure, anil "here rattlesnakes were so nliund.iut in autumn that itWM I
work of much danger to dig up the bulbs.

It WD t"-i s, ni to Europe in 1079 or l*;.i b\ MH. Il \NSON of New York, who gave it the name of
nlumhiamtm, liecause it was found on the banks of the Columbia river: and WM described bj MR, IUKKH from
a plant which flowered in HeiiK \l\\ l.i.n n 11.1 v'« garden in 1«.7I

In refining the plant known as L. eawartViwr parrlf/nrtim. Hook., to this species, I am guided by numerous
imeai in the Herberium at Kew, collected by [¿TALL ami DOOOLAS, the bull» of which even in • dry state

¡t specifically with any certainty. IB the «hole plant much resemble- weak OT Starred varíelos ..t /. /•ii.ltliHttm

In this country it prove« perfectly hardy, and il Nay tO cultivate in the MUH i'ion which
suits I,, ¡wrilaiinum. It Taries considerably in the size and shape of the leaves (which are l mied,
but some'! n the form and colour of the flo\\«i-s; hut out nf a large nunibcrof bulbs which
were kindly sent ma by ala HAHBOW, not our pi from the type, which is well
shown m my plate. The plant here figured flowered in July 1*70 at Mn. HILL'S nurseries in Londi n ; but M I
was not then quite sure about its identity, I waited until I knew more about the specie« before Writing on it.

With proper treatment and attention I believe (he (¡uldcn-niycd I.ily can lie grown, to greater perfection in
pots than in the open ground; and though this ii of roursr the most D method, yet the plant IBM

The treatment that I have f.iuiul by experience «hr most i- ... follows:•On receipt of the bull»,
which should be purchased early in the «inter (home-grown ones being in most case» to be preferred to imported
oui»), tin y should lie potted singly in pot- from ."> to 8 melles in diameter, according to their »i/.r. Th

with coar-e -ili.i nnd. The bulb should then be put in and enrrred with the same compost to within I or 2
inche» of the rim. Tile pots should then be plunged in ashes, cocoanut-fibre, or some similar substance, in a cold
frame, orchiil-hou-e. or shed where the frost cannot enter, and covered up with leaves or straw. In fnun two to
three months llnj will begin to shoot, and should then be uncovered, and placed in a light and airv place, not too

Aphides, which are very fond of and injurious to thr young growth of Lilies, must be carefully -might for and
destroyed, or they will injure the Bowers. A- (he stem begun t<> throw out roots a good surface-dressing of rough
peat must be put on; mid very weak liquid manure may be given, if the plants ere well routed anil

Their enemas in the ensuing year« depends in • gréai measure on the routs being active fora- lmi'^ a period as
possible : and this is only to be ensured by careful watering. If they are repotted annually, which is the practice of
many growers, it should be done as soon as the stems have completely withered, and with as littl.- diatorbano '"
the roots as possible. The stem, however, should always be cut off close to the bulb, removing with it the mass
of root-, which, having fulfilled their function of nourishing ¡1 during the growing-season, arc now useless. A fresh
top-dressing hang put in, the pots should he returned to their waiter quarters, and kept in a state of gentle
moisture, neither dry nor wet, until the new growth again appears.

A- regards the conditions under which this plant succeeds best out of doors I cannot do better than refer
my readers to an account of the garden of JAMES M'INTO«II, Esq., at Oatlands Park, Weybridge, which was
published in the 'Gardenere* Chronicle' for December is. Is;.').

The extraordinary success which has been obtained here is in my experience unequalled, and is, I think, due
principally to the soil aud situation of Mit. M'INTOSII'S garden, which dopes genii] t" the north, and is well
slu It.H il l>\ in- from wind. 'lite «oil is very light, but always moist below; and the Lilies are all planted on the
edges of rhodndrndron-heds, where tiny art protected from spring frost» aud the soil is sheltered from the sun.
Here they attain a height of »i to 12 feet, bearing commonly 20 to 40 flowers on a tingle stem, and blooming
at various tiroes from July till the end of October, the middle of August being the time when they are usually seen
in the greatest perfection.

¡.ilium nurntum ripctis seed freely under favourable conditions, and may he propagated in this manner with
moderate cere, though the seed often lies fur more than a year before germinating. I have not yet been able to
Ma rtain the reason why s( edi ripened ami «own at the same time vary sU remarkably in the period of germination.
A few usually come up in the first season, and the majority in the second . but some lie dormant for as much as
thirty months

The plant which I have figured is hy no means so fine as is often seen, either in the number or ante
of it» flowers; hut a Plate of double this size would not contain a really large specimen.

'Ilie variations are so numerous that hardly two plants in fifty will be exactly alike ; but no striking depar-

type is found in a wild state in the north of China; but having seen no dried or living indigenous specimens
from that country, I cannot IK- sure to which specie* it baloi

The cultivation of /.. ciegan* and its varieties is easy : it requires nothing more than a good rich sandy
soil, well drained, but not too shallow ; and tlioni¡!i it sometime* grows well in a peaty soil, it is not necessary
for this as for soma Lilies In pots it also grows well if properly attended to, and produces seed which germinates
quickly, and grotH more rapidly than in the case of the Martagón, though great care must be taken of the young
plants in their earlier stages.

fniiu those of the Himalayan species; and though 1 shall not lie surprised if intcruniliute forms lie discovered in

parts of the northern islands, but more rarely in ihe mountainous districts north of Yedo.

There was some correspondence on the subject of this ljly in the 'Garda for 1677, which
lendl to show that the variety fini introduced by Ma. FORTCXE, and which, as I have said, probably cmio
from China, was taller, more tturiferoiis, and Othcrwiee finer than those now in culti\aliini. There i -
derable difference in the arrangeaient of the leaves, which are not always arranged in a regular whorl, but are

As this plant product s ¡u leaves very early in the spring, anil they arc much injured by frost, it is desirable
tu protect tin in with a hand-light; and care must he taken that the beautiful bronzed foliage is not injured by mm
and wind.

a dried specimeu and figure of the plant at a meeting of the California!! Academy of i I sol. It

however, was nut described till |HI'.:I, erben 1 >it. Kiiincn gave it the name of Cohan H'tuhingloiuanum -, and it \va«
again described by 1'noi. \. WoOB miller the same name in |HI;S.

Notwithstanding it« beauty, thi« plant was not introduced into mir garden- until recently, when Kor./.i., the
well-known botanical traveller, having been put OH the scent by HKKII MAX LBIUHTLUT, of Haden, sent him a
consignment of bulbs from California, which arrived in lHli'l. Shortly after this it flowcml in Ma. LflCUTI is -

In 1S71 .mil |.s7'> large i|ii.iiitities were eolleeted by MB. ROKZI. and sent to Europe, which have now found their
way into the hands of mosl amateurs and nursery men.

Though this plant has not hitherto quite realized in gardens the high expo tltioiU thai were formed of its
beauty, there i* no doubt that the better varieties, when well BttahBahed, will rank among the finest Lilie-.

In oonaMeting the best means of attaining this object we must first describe the soil and climate of its
native habitai.

M> "»s. BA< KHOI SB, of V"rk ; and I believe it «raj ttr-t introduced, together with other varieties of the»
plant, b] MB. U Km./I. The first, second, anil fifth of these forms certainly appear to be distinct and con-taut
varieties¡ and the third mid fourth have been so for four seasone in nrj garden; but I should not be surprised
to find that their distinctive characters disappeared under changed conditions ; and, perhaps, even now they
could not be exactly identified with plants in a state of nature.

The habitat of this plant ¡> the roast-range ol California and Oregon, from about I0OO to 5000 feet

viz Utah, is, 1 think, very doubtful ; and MB. Koh/.t. himself na« unable In remember having found any plant of
this nature in t'tah.

The cultivation of all these forms i« so easy, their constitution so good, and their increase so rapid, that I
cam confidently recommend them to all. Unlike to man] I ¡lies, which year by year get weaker and fewer, and
soon die. notwithstanding all the pain- which has bean taken to provide them with congenial quarters, this m

full beauty.

Tin bulbs, when established, product- annually from three to five flowering growth» from each old one, soon
causing a crowd of fine stems to spring up, and a great abundance of flowers to appear. The seed also, which
is produced in favourable seasons, [¡row» much more quickly and c.i-ily than is the case with many l.ilies, and
produces flowering plants in about four years. I have found that it is better to divide the masses of bulb» formed
by tin rarietii • of this l.ily about once in three fears, as they crowd each other so much by their rapid uwreaai
that the stems become weak from want of room.

The plant from which my figure was drawn flowered in my gardeu in July 187C.
