Graceful of Flower and Stem

In developing the remarkable Shasta daisy, Mr. Burbank did not confine himself to observation of any single character, but took into consideration at all times not only the flower itself, but also the stem and the manner of growth. Through rigid selection, in connection with the hybridizing experiments, he produced a flower that is peculiarly graceful both as to blossom and as to form and manner of growth of stem.
