Mrs. Clifton Dunlap gave a re
port on the amaryllis, an easily
hybridized bulbous plant from the
tropics. She described its regular
tubular flowers on lone, thick
stocks, and its dark green strap
shaped leaves. After the stalk
starts, growth is very rapid.
The amaryllis should be shal-
lowly planted, with two-thirds of
the bulb above the soil. Flowers
are pink, red, white and striped.
Mrs. Fred Shepard reported on
the perennial aster, known as
Michaelmas daisy, which is the
largest family of asters, with 250
species, wild and cultivated, found
in America. They can be grown
in partial shade, but prefer sun
shine. The daisy-like flowers, in pink,
white, lavender and deep purple,
bloom in clusters in summer and
fall. Clumps can be divided in fall
or early spring, and should be
well fertilized in fall.
