They are tempted by mild weather to push their leaf in the winter, in which case they suffer injury from severe frosts that may ensue, though they will endure a good deal ; and their habit is to flower after the leaf has acquired its growth before they go to rest. The Phycellas have been found difficult to cultivate, because they have been often set in peat, though they grow naturally...
Página 278 - To the cultivators of ornamental plants the facility of raising hybrid varieties affords an endless source of interest and amusement. He sees in the several species of each genus that he possesses the materials with which he must work, and he considers in what manner he can blend them to the best advantage, looking to the several gifts in which each excels, whether of hardiness to endure our seasons, of brilliancy in its colours, of delicacy in its markings, of fragrance, or stature, or profusion...
Página 219 - I felt no doubt of its being an entirely distinct plant. Even when Lord Fitzwilliam assured me that it was beyond all doubt an accidental sport of Catasetum tridentatum, I still adhered to my idea that an imported plant of Monachanthus viridis had been accidentally taken for the latter common species. Nor do I think that, as a botanist, I was to be blamed for these errors ; the genera being founded upon characters...

Página 511 - ... sentimental natives, to assist the expression of their feelings ; they are offered by the devotee at the shrine of his favourite saint, by the lover at the feet of his mistress, and by the sorrowing survivor at the grave of his friend : whether, in short, on fast days or feast days, on occasion of rejoicing or in moments of distress, these flowers are sought for with an avidity which would seem to say that there was ' no sympathy like theirs;' — thus,
Página 592 - ... tree in the world has a more lofty and imposing appearance, whether overtopping its humbler companions in some woody district, or rising in solitary grandeur in some open plain. Even the untutored children of Africa are so struck with the majesty of its appearance, that they designate it the God-tree, and account it sacrilege to injure it with the axe ; so that, not unfrequently, not even the fear of punishment will induce them to cut it down.
Página 227 - ... and shrubbery. Under such circumstances, we strongly recommend the erection of conservatories, as the cheapest, the most efficient, and the most ornamental mode of preserving in a healthy state, during winter, not only oranges, myrtles, and similar plants, but, in general, all the species which are natives of countries that, without experiencing severe frost, are cold enough during winter to suspend the vital energies of vegetation. It will be perfectly within the gardener's power to keep the...
Página 183 - ... bulbs on examination show a disposition to push out fresh fibres at their base. The old fibres in this genus seem always to perish before the plant vegetates again ; it cannot therefore be injurious, and may be advantageous, to take the bulbs out of the ground when the leaves perish, and set them again when they are disposed to move. They will be best preserved while at rest in dry sand. I consider that Phycellas should begin to grow in February, and go to rest in August. If the leaf endures...
