ZAUSCHNERIA CALIFORNICA.--Californian Fuchsia, or Humming Birds'

Trumpet. California and Mexico, 1847. A small-growing, densely-branched

shrub, with linear-lanceolate silvery pubescent leaves, and bright red

or scarlet tubular flowers, with a long, slender style resembling some

of the Fuchsias. It is a pretty and distinct Alpine shrub, and not being

perfectly hardy should be assigned a rather warm and sheltered position.
