THE MANY-COLOURED COLLINSIA.

(COLLINSIA MULTICOLOR.)

ORIGINAL PRINT

 [PLATE 55.]  

Date: 1851-1852

A beautlful hardy Annual, from California, belonging to the .Natural Order of LINARIDS.

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

SEEDS of this beautiful annual were received from their collector in California by Messrs. Veitch. of Exeter, from whom we obtained specimens in May last.


Like Collinsia bicolor it grows from I to 16 feet high, and is loaded with a profusion of gay flowers; but it is very much handsomer on account of the rich purple tint of its long floral leaves, and the gay markings of its party-coloured flowers. The middle boat-shaped lobe of the lower lip of the corolla is crimson, the lower lip itself is lilac, and so is the upper lip except that there is abroad white spot in its middle relieved by numerous sanguine speckles.........................

Order#: PAX-55

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.

Price: $59.99
