A Bed of Land Cress

The cresses are ordinarily grown, as is well known, for their aromatic qualities, and to serve as dainty garnishings, rather than as purvegors of food. Here is a cress that is distinctly ornamental; and is doubly attractive because it grows on land, instead of in the water, as is rather the custom of its tribe. The cresses are a numerous family, and Mr. Burbank has experimented with many of them.
