Seasoned gardeners who have learned, thru long and arduous toil, the meaning of thejiigh-sounding Latin names of the horticultural world, will disagree. Beauty, ease of culture, length of blooming period, and adaptability for cuttings, are the four cardinal virtues which they will tell you are the real contributing faaors to a flower's : popularity. The fact remains, however, that the seeds that make up the bulk of the sales at the colorful seed displays at local dealers are the ones with comparatively simple names such as sweet pra, nasturtium, and the ones illustrated here. To make it easier to select the seed novelties and unknown varieties, seed pro- dticrrs reproduce many flowers in actual colors on the face of the package. Picture speak a universal language and these pic lures, as a result, have helped many a flower with a difficult name to attain some degree of popularity. With the genera; revival in gartfrn interest this spring, thousands of beginners are being initiated in the mysteries of gardening.
