and SweetPeas, if any ill-luck should deprive us of these sweet favorites. Many of our beautiful climbers,such as the Convolvulus and Cobcea scandens, and nearly all our Everlastings and OrnamentalGrasses ai*e included in this section. This Department, however, embraces some Perennials, but only those that flower the firstseason, though they do not die at its close, like the Annuals. Among these are the Pansy,Dianthus, Antirrhinum, &c, that live for several years under favorable circumstances. Many ofthe flowers that we treat as Annuals, sowing fresh seeds and growing new plants every year,because the plants are destroyed by frost in the autumn, are really Biennials or Perennials intheir Southern home. In this, as in all other departments, we have endeavored to show, as far as possible to doso with so small engravings, both the size and character of the flower: and the habits of theplants. Descriptions of varieties, prices, &c, will be found in the latter part of the Guide. 12
