The blossoms are of a firm texture, but apt to fall off long before they have lost their brilliancy; it therefore is a practice with some to. They are, for the most part, inhabitants of warm climates, and affect dry, sheltered, though not shady, situations. The present species is a native of Spain, and the south of France, and being liable to be killed by the severity of our winters, is generally kept with green-house plants.
