Excerpt from Addisonia, Vol. 9: Colored Illustrations and Popular Descriptions of Plants; 1924
The first six plates of this number represent some of the favorite varieties of hardy chrysanthemums in the collection at the New York Botanical Garden. This collection was formed in 1918, from American sources, principally from the Charles H. Totty Co. Of Madison, New Jersey. Some varieties had been grown since 1910 new varieties were added to those, among them some of the best liked of the most hardy sorts, including White Doty, a sport of one of the Wholly satisfactory pompons. Lillian Doty, from which it sported, was also in the collection, together with some excellent singles represented by Joan Edwards, here illustrated, Cardinal, brilliant crimson, Miss Ruth S. Bergen, purple.
