FENDLERA RUPICOLA.--Mexico, 1888. A low-growing shrub, peculiar to the

dry rocky parts of the United States, particularly the south-western

district. It grows about a yard high, and bears a great profusion of

bluish-white flowers, that are rendered very conspicuous by reason of

the bright yellow stamens. It is the only known species, and is nearly

allied to the Saxifrages. Any fairly good garden soil will suit it

well, but it wants to be planted where superfluous moisture is quickly

carried off.
