On account of Its adaptability

There Is a family of dwarf iris
in the bearded class. They are
the first to flower. The plants are
from six to twelve finches high
and are useful for ' planting la
front of the taller sorts. They are
also especially suitable for rock
gardens. . .
- . . New Variety Created
: An Intermediate class his been
produced by crossing the. dwarf
bearded Iris with the tall .varie
ties. The resultant plants are
some what taller than the dwarfs,
following them in blooming, just
before the regular tall varieties

Before the tall bearded Iris are
done blooming, the Siberians, of
a beardless species, start to

cies have a regular root, more
like that of coarse grasses, and
so must be set deeper than the

be packed tightly. about the

Two Interesting typea of lilies

the Salem showing has been lo

them. There may be others more
beautiful which' has not re
been- reported it such .be . the
ease let - the garden editor know.
There la a spectacular display
of Henryl lilies in the yard. beside
the road of. the home or Mrs
Margaret' A. Watts. on Oak Hll
drive. This is reached by. going
out the south Pacific highway
on- the Jefferson road - and turn
ing-to the left at the Oak. Hll
There ; are at Jeaat . 0 -stalks
coming up within a small square

One central stalk' has the com
mon malformation of Jasclnatlon
and the result ' Is many ' more
than ' the - ordinary number of
blooms on the stalks which com'
blned to make one. '
The Henryl illy is as Importa
tion from the Orient. It was
brought here at an early date by
a botanist by nam of Henry. It
Is very easily; grown and doea
not require very much care al
though ft like anything else
nicer if It Is given care.
. One thing thai makes It satis
factory is that it Is not subject
I to the many diseases from which
ae many. llly varieties suffer.; It
too. Is a semi-shade loving plant.
Seed may be procured but bulbs
are much more rapid - producers

The second lily find Is at the
R. A. Raymond tract. The place

"it is so beautiful I would like
to share it with every one."
And so it Is. By name It Is a
gold band lily and it has the ra
ther unusual history of belnr
nve years old and -having 20
blooms upon Its one hardy stalk.
It has been in bloom for three
weeks and will -last at least an
other week. -- .
One bloom appeared Its first

great white bell shaped blooms
delicately yet definitely striped
with gold, hang for the stalk.
The perfume Is especially lovely.
These lines too. come from the
Orient where in Japan they are
grown as a field crop and the
bulbs are used for food.
As a rule these lilies do not live
for- more than one or two years
beacuse of the numerous diseases
to r which they : are very subject.
