THE HUNTSVILLE NURSERIES, HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA 31 Hardy Perennials We are not attempting to offer a large list of Perennials, but have selected only a few varieties of Phlox, Peonies and Cannas which we know will do well. All of the Perennials do best in strong, fertile soil, with plenty of moisture and good clean cultivation. The appearance of your Peren- nial planting will be greatly improved if the old flower stems are all removed after the blooming period. Perennial Phlox The ground on which you expect to plant your Phlox should be thoroughly spaded to a good depth, working in plenty of well-rotted barn- yard litter and thoroughly pulverizing the soil. The plants should be set in early November to secure best results, and should be planted about eighteen inches apart. Thorough watering dur- ing a dry period will aid the plants to become established and will be well rewarded by more beautiful flowers. PRICE, 25c each; $2.50 per doz. Miss Lingard. A very early-blooming, white va- riety with a pale pink center. Elizabeth Campbell. A very large, soft delicate pink flower; plant is a stronger grower. Ferdinand Cortez. A bright crimson flower, re- taining its color for a long period. Cannas Unusual effects can be secured by the judicious planting of Cannas, because they lend themselves to almost any planting pian, being particularly effective when planted in solid masses oi for bor- der work. There is no flower 'hfit gives mora uni- versal satisfaction; it continues in bloom the en- tire Summer from the time they are planted in the Spring. The Cannas will thrive in almost any soil, but like most other perennials they pre- fer a very rich prop- erly prepared bed. PRICE, 25c ea.; $2.50 per doz.
