Excerpt from The Floral World and Garden Guide, 1868

Now, I must tell you that I have before me a list of about three hundred species and varieties of plants that ?ower in Spring, and in looking through it I am constrained to say it must have been pre pared by a man (or a monster) who clutched at names and was ignorant of things. I might reproduce that list, and in so doing perpetrate a dreadful wrong against all those readers who happened to put faith in it. The author of the list enumerates crocuses so many, that a man must~be crocus mad and a downright croaker who would take a moment's trouble to obtain any of them; and then, when we look into the list, we find a lot mentioned that are really not to be obtained at all, and are not to be found even in botanical gardens. SO he goes on, to use an expression of the re nowned A. W., making an ass of himself generally. In'this same list are nine species of Trilliums. Now it is true they are charming plants; but nine-tenths of simple people who should buy and plant them would be sure to lose them, and that very remark suggests the desirability of a paper on Trilliums shortly. The moral of these remarks is, that mere lists are of no value at all; people want to know first of good things that may be obtained without difficulty, and that may be grown anywhere. What they want after that desire is satisfied does not much matter. Let us address our selves to the subject Of spring ?owers for everybody and every where.
