C. vulgaris Hammondi, C. vulgaris minor, and C. vulgaris pilosa, all

white-flowered forms; C. vulgaris Alportii, and C. vulgaris Alportii

variegata, the former bearing rich crimson flowers, and the latter with

distinctly variegated foliage; C. vulgaris argentea, and C. vulgaris

aurea, with silvery-variegated and golden foliage; C. vulgaris

flore-pleno, a most beautiful and free-growing variety, with double

flowers; C. vulgaris Foxii, a dwarf plant that does not flower freely;

and C. vulgaris pumila, and C. vulgaris dumosa, which are of small

cushion-like growth.
