CHRYSANTHEMUMS. We have a fine collection of this popular fall flower, embracing the different colors, sizes, and shapes. They are fine small plants, and should be grown in a rich compost of light loam and rotten manure, giving them a cool, airy situation out of doors through the iummer, thus making strong plants for fall blooming. Price, I5.cents each ; $1.50 per dozen. By mail, 5 cents extra for each plant LILIES {Lilium). Now that hardy plants generally are being so much sought after, no genera can lay so much claim to our attention as the genus LUiuin. They are stately, massive, and beauti- ful. Some possess the most gorgeous colors, while others are of snowy whiteness and purity, with the most delicate and agreeable perfumes; whilst for general effect, whether growing in the gardens or used as cut flowers, they have no rivals. They should be planted in spring by the ist of May, and in the fall from Oct. i, as long as the soil can be worked, in a good loamy soil, enriched with very rotten manure. Plant four inches deep, and cover in winter with a light layer of manure, which may be forked in the following spring. The majority of lilies are perfectly hardy; and those that are not require only a covering of four to six inches of dried leaves, or other non-heat- conducting material. The bulbs should not be disturbed oftener than once in three years. General List of all the most desirable Standard Varieties. EACH. DOZ. Auratum {^Golden-rayed Queen of Lilies).
