I send you blooms of Mr. Lemoines' double lilac Lemoineii. I received a package of these lilacs from Mr. Lemoines, of Nancy, France, on Feb. 25th, containing seven varieties of the double form....Any variety of lilac, after attaining sufficient age and size, may be brought into bloom almost at pleasure, in winter, in an ordinary sitting room where common houseplants do well....I was astonished, when in France last summer, to see the immense fields near Paris devoted to lilac culture. I presume many hundreds of acres were closely planted in these shrubs, for winter bloom in the Paris market.
