"Washington has many claims for being
the most beautiful and attractive city
on tho continent. It's political and social
life are loadstones for the ambitious and the
pleasure-seeking. The wide, sliudy streets,
tho numerous parks, the adjacent river and
magnificent woodlands, make it the city,
par excellence for a home. One great at
traction which "Washington possesbes in a
more marked degreo thau is commonly
soeu In populous and prosperous sections,
are our numerous "forests primeval." "With
in a few miles of the boundaries, there are
Jarge stretches of wooded couutry, where
as yet, that modern iconoclast of nature,
"tho eub-dfvisiou for suburban homes,"
has uot intruded. Here in the deep, dark
woods., "where the marriage of the plants
is sweetly solemuized," we meet many
old rrieudsof the wild flower genus.
"Flora Colnmblaua," as tho native flora
of the District of Columbia Is called, js
unusually largeand luxuriant. Prof. Lester
F. "Ward, of the National Mii6eum, in his
"Guide to the Flora of "Washington and
Vicinity," enumerates nearly 1 ,400 flowers,
etirubs and trees that are iudenous to
this section. Many of these plants are
rare, and are familiar only to the scientist,
but a goodly percentage axe old acquaint
ances perhaps known and loved from our
Richard .lefferis says that, "sweetest
of all sweet things is wild-flower air."
Our District has no flower more beautiful
or more fagrant thau the trailing arbutus,
and we can almost believe that Jeffries
had beeuroamingtliroiigh ourspring woods,
when he mado that now famous observa
tlon. The trailing arbutus belongs to
the heath family, and Is not even a remote
or honeysuckle fami ly, for which ltis soof ten
The clustered pink flower, the rounded,
heart-shaped leaves, and the graceful fes-
toomug of the vine mako the arbutus very
easy to identify.
BEAUTIFUL SnOWT AZALEA.
The heath family give us another wild
flower, the azalea, whose beautiful, showy
blossoms are conspicuous amoug the finest
of floral displays:; also the great laurel,
a fragrant flowing shrub, which seems to
thrive best In the neighborhood of Chain
Bridge. The great laurel is a purely
American plant, and when in the full per
fection of Its blooming, it is one of which
we can be justly proud.
We boast of fourteen varieties of the
violet family around Washington, but
not all of these aro wild flowers. We have
a three -colored violet called tho wild
pansy, which Is very pretty, but not abun
dant enough to be well known. The
lance-leaved violet is frequently found
in the meadows along tho Baltimore and
Potomac Railroad, about the end of ApriL
It is a daiuty white blossom, with smooth,
lance-shaped leaves, and utterly unhko
the common bluo violet Wo have also a
yellow violet, an arrow-leafed violet, and
a species known as the pale violet, which
Is found growing luxuriantly around Little
Falls and the islands of the Potomac, and is
chiefly noted for bearing a larger autumnal
crop of flowers than It does In the ppring.
The common blue violet Is our best-known
and best-beloved spring flower. In the
contest for naming a national flower for
the United Slates, the friends of the violet
made a most respcctablo showing In all
climes and all ages the violet has been a
No flower baa been more lauded in poetry
and song In the primitive days when
nature was so closely interwoven in the
thoughts and words of men , the violet was
chosen as an emblem of constancy. "Who
giveth her lover a violet, hath given part
of her soul," is anold Saxon saying. Shake
speare was a great admirer of this modes t
little fiower "The violet is for faith
fulness," and again, Duke Arsino, in
"Twelfth Night," compares a strain of
music to the breath of a bank of violets.
This species of wild violet is not fragrant,
but will become so by transplanting into
rich .damp earth, and by a little care. Tho
deep blue wild violet grows profubely in
the shady woodlands where the soil is
slightly moist and sandy. Its dainty
familiar blossom Is one of the first to greet
us after the winter is past, and frequently
it has n second blooming in the fall, if the
weather remains mild.
IN SOLITARY STATE.
The wood anemone is well known in many
of our forests. It is a dainty waxy looking
flower, growing in solitary slate on a
slender stem, and presenting a particu
larly graceful and fragile appearance.
The anemone conies with the young and
tender foliage of the early spring, and its
tremulous, delicate beauty has given it a
prominent place among our wild flowers.
This gentle child of the forest has a
most aristocratic lineage. In fact, so an
clcntis the history of the first anemone that
it is almost lost In the twilight or ages.
One tradition says that tlio anemone
sprang from the spot whero Venus was
weeping passionate, useless tears over
the body of her slain lover, Adonis. An
other Greek fable is that a wood nymph
was so much admired by that fickle and
adroit flatterer, .Zephyr, that she excited
tho Jealousy of the goddess Flora. This
young woman promptly changed her rival
into the cold, delicate anemone, and sent
the cruel north wind, Boreas, to torment
bcr. The ancients called lho anemone
the "wind shaken," possibly from this
fable, and they bad a superstition that
the wind which passed over the anemone
brought disease and disaster in Its wake.
The ruo anemono monopolizes the roots
of old trees, and is a very prelty species,
with clusters of pinkish white" flowers
and graceful foliage. It Is found most
abundantly in what the botanists formerly
called the terra cotta region, but which
can bo better Identified now as the sub
urb of Brookland and the Catholic Uni
versity grounds. "Yq find in the same
neighborhood tho sweet bay or laurel mag
nolia, a shrub which grows to the height
of twenty feet, and bears dark shining
leaves from four to six Inches in length
and beautiful while flowers, almost un
During these sultry July days the cool
secluded marsheB of the Upper Potomac
and tho Eastern Branch, and the many
low damp places around "Washington, are
covered with tho- starry white clusters
of the Virginia clematis, or, as it is popu
larly known, "Virgin's bower." Per
haps we have no wild flower that Is ruoro
familiarly known than tho clematis. It
Is one of our best climbers, very hardy, and
of rapid growth, and Its beautiful clusters
of flowers, white and Eometlmcs purple,
make It highly ornamental. Later In tho
soason the blossoms give place to silvery
feather-like plumes that arc unspeakably
SKILLFUL PORCH CLIMBERS.
The clematis is easily cultivated, and all
lovers of tbeso woodland children are glad
to notice that they are rapidly being trans
planted to olty homes, where they make
graceful and skillful porch climbers. They
accomplish this purpose by means of tho
bending or clasping of the tender leaf
stalks, and, according to Dr. Darwin, the
ascent each day can be accurately predicted.
The clematis, like tho anemone, belongs
to the great and distinguished family,
Ranunculacea, which furnishes our native
flora with so many other favorltoB. The
hepatica, which blooms in great numbers
on dry hillsides; the water plaintain spear
wort; three or four varltles of crowfoot;
those cherished friends of our childhood,
the buttercup and the wild columbine; the
well-known field larkspur and its pigmy
sister, the dwarf larkspur, are znembcrB of
Another species li the tall meadow rue,
as Handsome and graceful a flower as
one could see iu tho choicest garden.
Where Rock Creek wends its leisurely '
course through our midsummer fields and
forests the meadow ruo lifts her stately
head above the myriad blossoms around.
In this region we find aleo tho wild flag,
purple-tinted and haughty with regal
glory, the yellow meadow lily, tho dellcato
swamp milk-weed and the fringed orchis.
All of them aro captivating, charming
flowers, but none are to striking as the cool,
chaste beauty of tho meadow ruo.
We have no wild fower more prolific
in this section than the bluet. No one can
forget its tender loveliness, claiming our
attention from tho roadsides, the meadows,
and tho outskirts of tho woods. Its twink
ling blue oyesseem to laugh a welcome to all
morning strollers. Towards evening Its
dainty, euamol-llke flowers are still bright
and fresh, it being decidedly uot a blossom
"which llveth Just for tho hour." The
bluets have been honored with many names.
About 1830 some local botanists about
Washington christened the species Venus'
Pride. Prof. Meohan Bays "that namecould
not become popular, because according to
all accounts Venus was a dashing young fe
male, with a very high opinion or her
charms, and such a character is totally at
variance with this wee, modest flower."
Around Philadelphia it is called "Quaker
Bonnet," and in other sections it is kuqwn
as the dwarf pink.
AN OLD FRIEND.
Tho common white daisy is an old
friend to whom each spring flower lovers
glvo a hearty welcome. It is not, however,
greeted so enthusiastically by the fannei?
tho "white weed," as he calls it, being
very hurtful to pasture land and difficult
to eradicate. The daisy has lately be
come popular as a church decorator, and
figured quite conspicuously at weddings
during the past spring. It is associated
in most minds, however, with the sad story
of Marguerite and how she questioned its
snowy petals to find whether the gay and
heartless Faust really loved her. So It
does not seem a very happy selection for a
Washington Is particularly pioud of five
very handtomo species of liutive water
lilies. The white water lily, or pond lily,
Is too well known to need description. It
is found wild aiouud Great Falls, but is
more fumiliur on account of its introduc
tion into the lukc& and fountain basins of
our parks. Scarcely a fountain In our
numerous parks that has not a collection
of this fine queenly flower. The White
Lot lake had a few years ago quite a
famous assortment of aquatic lilies, con
taining fconie of the larest species known.
A daiuty pink lily is often teen in the
parks fioailug among its spotlcas sisters
and making an exquisite contrast of color.
No flower is more richly colored than the
blue wutcr lily, one of the wild species
found in great quantities near the Potoiuno
flats and the marshes of Aualostau Island.
This is one of the deepest and most beautiful
of our few blue flowers. Like our blue
song birds, our azone-tinted flowers are
very rare. The more northern climates
seem to produce" he couleur-du-cellin much
greater abundance, both in flower raiment
and bird plumage.
The glory of bprlug and summer forests
depends largely on the prevalence of the
honey-suckle family. We have a good
dozen beautiful and fragrant specimens.
Our bprlng woods are always lovely with
rosy masses of the wild honey-suckle, which
so much resembles the azeleas that only
a close student of nature can discern the
difference Itisin the heightof its beauty
after the azelea has ceased to bloom, and
Is the first of the loug pageant of glo
rious summer flowers. The trumpet honey
suckle Is familiar along fences nud high
ways, and gives infinite life and variety
to the dullest and most prooaic biirround
Ings. We have a yellow-flowered species
that Is lovely in the extreme. The Jap
anese honey-suckle Is a native of many of
our woods, and Is mostly found close to
the spot where the wood thrush and other
berry-eating songsters have their meeting
ALONG THE ROADS.
Those residents of the city who are given
to country drives will uow see all along
the roads, and on the outskirts of cultivated
fields, a tall showy white flower known
as the wild carrot. They aro graceful and
stately-looking, and muke tho landscape
picturesque and attractive for the passerby,
but they are tlio bane of the florist, and the
despair of the farmer According to popu
lar verdict, the wild carrot is tho "peski
est" weed of this vicinity, audit seems hard
to believe that it is an offshoot of that
quiet, respectable garden vegetable, the
edible carrot- Carrots seem to be Very
old as a food staple. Pliny, the elder,
speaks of this delicious esseuce in broth.
They have been eaten In England slnee-the
days of the Tudors Parkinson says thatin
the Elizabethan period carrots were in
high favor, the ladles carrying their ad
miration to the extent of wearing wild
carrot flowers in their hair on state oc
casions. Itisbadtolmugiuethe woo-begone
appearancea court lady must have presented
after a few minutes in a hot crowded ball
room. The corn-cockle Is another trespasser
on cultivation, and Is found In large num
bers in the grain fields It is a lovely
flower of the purest blue, very attractive
luappearance.andsolienlentare we mortals
prone to be, when vice puts on thesemblance
of beauty, that the friends of the corn
cockle arc numerous Even the bad repu
tation which it receives in the parable of
the good husbandman and the enemy who
sowed his field with cockle, does not pre
vent us from loving these mischief-making
flowers, which, with "their bluo eyes with
tears o'er flowing, staud like Ruth amid
the golden corn."
WTo have also another troublesome In
truder, this one of foreign extraction, nnd
less tolerable, the blue vetch. This flower
which is scarcely pretty enough for us
to forgive Its bad habits is an emigrant
from Eugland. Many garden lovers have
often devoutly wished our energetic fore
fathers had allowed It to remain on it's
native shores. The brilliant poppy is also
of foreign extraction, but now, it has
become so prevalent that It literally glori
fies our rural districts with vivid patches
ORCniDS ARE UNIQUE.
In that most fascinating of the floral
families, the orchid, we have five uative
specimens. The orchid has lately been tho
object, of so much scientific research, and
tho magnificent dlspaly of these unique
flowers at the World's Fair has awakened
a deep Interest in all Its peculiarities. Its
Interesting mechanism, and the many
strange habits, 'repay the most earnest
study. The showy orchid, or "preacher
in the pulpit," Is our best specimen. Its
radiant beauty begins to dot the woods in
early May. In August the rein-orchid
blooms, and tho ragged fringed orchid is
orten seen through the summer in our
swamps and marches. Adam and Eve is
a very pretty species, and derives its name,
from the fact, that it brings forth leaves,
at least three months before Jt flowers.
We have many pleasing kinds of wild
phlox, sweet William, and catch-fly, and
one pretty little flower that blooms all
through the summer is called Venus' looking-glass.
Sweet Ciclly is familiar to
nearly every one, and children are devoted
to Us aromatic root. Tho passion flower
blooms luxuriantly around our woods,
and is frequently cultivated on garden
trellises. Its fruit, known as the May
apple, is also quite popular with tho
The black-eyed Susan and the elder
flower are soon constantly in August
in our meadowR and along tho roadways.
W have among our forest Triends a beau
tiful species of wild pink, whose fresh,
vigorous-looking flowers are most attract
ive in the late summer.
No mention of flowers would be com
plete without a reference to that lovely
little blossom bo dear to the heart of
tho lover, tho forget-me-not. 2Co flower
In all tho long list of wild and tamo varieties
