Three Shasta Daisys from Different Lots
In this, as in all of Mr. Burbank's experiments, quantity production has been the key note. Of the millions and millions of daisies raised, the few only have been saved, while the many have been discarded; and from this finally selected few, a whole new race has been propagated. The color photograph print here shows three variant daisies, each selected by Mr. Burbank for some individual good quality.
