|Browallia Elata or Tall
Browallia is plant from family Didynamia Gymnospermia.
Of this genus there are
only two species, both natives of South-America, the elata, so called from
its being a much taller plant than the demissa, is a very beautiful, and
not uncommon stove or green-house plant; it is impossible, by any colours
we have, to do justice to the brilliancy of its flowers.
Being an annual, it requires
to be raised yearly from seed, which must be sown on a hot-bed in the spring,
and the plants brought forward on another, otherwise they will not perfect
their seeds in this country. Some of these may be transplanted into the
borders of the flower-garden which are warmly situated, where, if the season
prove favourable, they will flower and ripen their seeds; but, for security's
sake, it will be prudent to keep a few plants in the green-house.
