The Parrot Bill Flower
This is a species of Clianthus which Mr. Burbank has under careful scrutiny, and the possibilities of which, as to variation, modification of flower, and the like, he is carefully testing. Rare flowers and common flowers are of equal interest to Mr. Burbank, as the reader is aware. In his eyes, no flower is devoid of beauty and none can justly be designated as "ordinary."
