Perfect Plum Seedling

This seedling contrasts markedly with the one here and considerably with those here. It is nearly two feet tall; its stalk is relatively thick, and absolutely perpendicular; it has a fine spread of symmetrically arranged branches; and its leaves (shown in smaller scale than the others because of the larger size of the tree) are of perfect shape and of fine color and texture. This seedling may be depended on to make a tree far superior to those shown in the other illustrations. Mr. Burbank confidently selects this seedling as the future bearer of valuable fruit.
