This fine variety of LEUCOJUM vernum, differs from the one before figured (No. 46) not only in its two-flowered

spathe, but also in the colour of the spots at the apex of the lacinię of the corolla, which in our plant are yellow ; in the one-flowered variety always green. Communicated in March last by Messrs. WHITLEY, BRAME, and MILNE, who received bulbs of this plant, with several other rarities, from a friend that collected them in the Carpathian mountains.
