There are large and small forms, and a bicolor variety seems to have been known long ago.
It differs from C. bicolor in having an upright raceme, which is an unusual characteristic in this section of the genus.
It is the name by which the beautiful Lespedeza bicolor is generally known.
Similarly, when white Emily Henderson (long pollen grains) is crossed with white Emily Henderson (round pollen grains), the offspring wholly consists of the reversionary purple type, and sometimes wholly of a red bicolor form known as "Painted Lady."
All the best Narcissi, and practically all the forms of the yellow and the bicolor Daffodils, may be planted in June, July, or August, in three ways-in the lawn or meadow, in the beds and borders of the garden, or in 6 or 8-inch pots.
