Bouquet of Freak Daisies

We have learned through observation of many examples that when a flower or plant once begins to vary, it may continue to vary almost indeflnitely. Here is an illustration of a new departure on the part of the Shasta daisy in which the "petals" take on a very curious form. It has interest as a freak rather than because of its beauty, but the variety is worthy of further attention, to see what may be its limits of variation in this direction.
