Embedded text or transcriptThe Watergate Creeper of Shrinking Violet (Annual)
Everlasting. Has habit of flourishig in any and every nook and cranny. Perfume becomes very boring after a time. Extremely hardy. Except for a reaction to bug-blight
Anglo-French Flowering Pear or Sweeheart plant (perennial)
New specie. Blooms profusely on both sides of the Channel in spite of attack from Wilsonian bug-bear beetles. French plant may suffer slightly from Pasific fall-out. English plant highly priced.
Razor-Edged Barberis or Boom-Boom (binennial)
Has rapid growth but reacts well to severe pruning of dead wood and suckers. If planted near Healeyotrope the latter turns deep purple and discharges cuckoo-spit. Can be deep frozen.
