The following notes on plants, received at the Gardens
during the year, have been made with a view to giving
increased publicity to this portion of the Society's operations;
and also to bring prominently forward any plants of particular
merit, either of a useful or ornamental character.
On reviewing the list of introduced plants, I find that
there are not many that are likely to become of much utility, yet there are a few which are deserving of notice in this respect, as they are of great commercial importance in their native country.
