New Intermediate Irises. We have received from Mr. J. Caparne, of Guernsey, some Irises remarkably fine in themselves, and especially valuable as coming at a time of year when other varieties fail us. The colours are varied and beautiful, and the sorts are not merely useful as growing plants, but are excellent as cut flowers, remaining fresh for a long time in water; while the buds open one after the other when kept in a warm light place.
