LEPTOSYNE

(Greek for slenderness)

A Daisy-like flower related to Coreopsis, Leplosyne stillmani, grows 18 inches tall. The flowers are golden yellow, 2 inches to 3 inches across; the tips of the ray florets are 3-lobed. The foliage is very finely cut.

Where to Plant. The flowers have long stems for cutting, and last well in water.

GENERAL. Sow the seeds in a sunny window or hotbed in March or in the open soil in May. They bloom in about six weeks from seed. Hotbed-sown plants should be pinched to make them stocky.

For forcing in the greenhouse maintain a temperature of 50 deg. and sow so that the flowers may be available in earliest Spring.
