Note the long-peduncled flowers (now in fruit) from the base (such an early stage suggesting one of Greene's species) and the long flowering stems which succeed them, the peduncles shorter and shorter until at the top they are very short. Note also the dif. [difference] in size of fls. [flowers] the spms. [specimens] all from one plant.
