The Blue Flag
A prominent horticulturist has said that Mr. Burbank
cannot keep his hands off any plant that comes under his ob-
servation. His every instinct calls out to him to test the plant and
see what can be done to better it. This blue flag is an illustra-
tion of a flower that is being thus tested, probably with-
out any very speciflc object. Not even Mr. Burbank
can tell what unexpected variations may
show themselves, offering material for
latieresting developments.
