THE SMALL.MOUTHED SIPHOCAMPYL

(SIPHOCAMPYLUS MICROSTOMA.)

ORIGINAL PRINT

 [PLATE 44.]  

Date: 1851-1852

A Stove half-climbing herbaceous Plant, from N. GRENADA, belonging to the Natural Order of LOBELIADS

Excerpt from text, which is included along with a copy of the Title Page:

Of this species Sir W. Hooker speaks in the following terms :— " Among many fine species of Siphocampylus, detected by Mr. Purdie in New Grenada, few, if any,
can vie with. this, in the size of the flowers and richness of their colour. It seems also to produce its blossoms early and freely, and they continue a long time in perfection; so much so, that though our plants were only raised from seed twelve months ago, they have been gay with flowers throughout the whole autumn, and winter months, and have proved a great acquisition to our stoves, during this dreary season. In the summer, a greenhouse will be a better situation for it, and from the successions of buds that are forming, it seems to be one of those plants which one may reckon on having in bloom at all times of the year. Some of our plants have the stems and branches deeply

Order#: PAX-44

Size: 8 ˝” x 11”

Paxton produced The Magazine of Botany, and Register of Flowering Plants. This series of magazines was published in London 1834-1849. During the years of 1850-1852, Paxton along with John Lindley published the rare three-volume work: PAXTON’S FLOWER GARDEN. Represented are many exotic species especially fine Orchids. They are often compared to the early volumes of Warner and Williams, Orchid Album. The print offered for sale here is from this first edition, which is a completely different product to the 1882 color printed edition frequently found. These prints were produced using a zincographic process along with hand coloring and have the plate markings Pinx & Zinc.

Condition: Excellent Vibrant color.
