INarcissus or Daffodils There are several quite dis- tinct classes of Narcissus: The old yellow Daffodil, or Trum- pet Narcissus, the white flow- ered Pheasant's Eye or Poet's Narcissus, and the'Polj-anthus Narcissus. The first two are among the hardijest and most desirable plants of the garden, and will do better and give more satisfaction with less care than almost any other plant. When once established they do not need to be reset for several years, and will thrive in almost any soil. They are not only desirable for the gar- den, but equally so for the house. One to four bulbs set in a five-inch pot will be sure to give flowers even in the smoky atmosphere of the city, where their beau- tiful color and delicate fragrance are doubly welcome. The Polj'anthus varieties need some protection through winter in the North, but will do finely without it in the South. They are exceedingly valuable for flower- ing in pots in the house. The Paper White may be made to come into bloom in December, and this, with other varie- ties of Narcissus, will give a continuous succession of profuse bloom imtil spring. They thrive best in a cool temperature. Pot as soon as received; set m a cool, dark room, and keep moderately moist for one or two months so that they may root; then remove to the window or conservatory for flowering.
