Datura meteloides (S371c: 1884)

Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: A letter to the Editor printed on page 352 of the 25 October 1884 issue of The Garden. To link directly to this page, connect with: http://people.wku.edu/charles.smith/wallace/S371C.htm

    This fine species has flowered abundantly this season from Californian seeds planted in the open ground last year. The flowers are 7 inches or 8 inches long, white, tinged with a beautiful violet-blue, and produced in succession from August till now. It appears to be perennial, and a stem lying in the ground is rooting freely. It agrees exactly with the description in Asa Gray's new "Flora of North America," vol. ii., pt. i, p. 240. It has just ripened seeds with me, and I shall be pleased to send a few to anyone wishing to grow it, who will send me a stamped and directed envelope.

--ALFRED R. WALLACE, Frith Hill, Godalming.
