Excerpt from The California Horticulturist and Floral Magazine, 1873, Vol. 3
Year by year our people show a grow ing appreciation of ﬂowering bulbs; and although the simple treatment needed by many of these favorites is as yet a mystery to some, it is gratifying to see that others have met with marked suc cess. I have seen in some collections (particularly in those Of our lady ama teur gardeners), magnificent spikes of Hyacinths, beautiful clusters of Narcis sus, Cyclamens covered with their nod ding gems of white or purple, and Lilies, Amaryllis, Tulips, Ranunculus, Anemones, Gladiolus, Diclytras, Glox inias, Tigridias, etc., all grown with re markable success, and worthy Objects for the admiration of their lady friends, who doubtless determine to follow the example by adding some of these gems to their own collections of plants, which without some of the varieties above named, are certainly very incomplete.
