A hardy Herbaceous Plant from CALIFORNIA, belonging to the Order of LINARIADS.

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

THE  remarks at No. 105 of our First Volume have prepared our readers for a knowledge of this handsome Perennial, which proves to deserve more attention at the hand of the gardener than was anticipated. It forms a fine tuft of slightly glancous branches and leaves, producing in the autumnal months rods of bright azure blue flowers about 2 feet high..........................................

Order#: PAX-64

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. There is some foreign matter which appears to be dried glue in the lower border.

Price: $49.99
