Selections of Annuals - Hardy and Half Hardy Annuals - Old Fashioned Flowers

Selections of Annuals Described.

Selections of Annuals -



As so much depends upon personal taste, the conveniences at disposal, and the circumstances of the case, it becomes a very arbitrary proceeding to make a selection from the plants described in this work and call them " the best." However, the task is worth attempting for the guidance of those unacquainted with Annuals. In the following selections due consideration is given to the general usefulness of



the subjects, and not alone to their value either for effect or for cutting. The ever popular Sweet Peas are omitted, because they are dealt with in a separate volume of the Present-Day Gardening series.

Below are given four dozen genera, and they are placed in dozens according to merit : —

Asters (Callistephus), Chrysanthemums, Sunflowers (Helianthus), Stocks (Matlhiola), Tropaeolums or Nasturtiums, Candytuft (Iberis), Godetias (CEnotliera\ Sweet Scabious (Scahiosa), Marigolds (Calendula and Tagetes), Clarkias, Phlox Drummondii, and Poppies (Papaver).
