NARCISSUS NAMED FOR MRS. EARHART: The Carrie Beal Earhart narcissus, named for the late Mrs. Harry B. Earhart of Ann Arbor because of her love and knowledge of horticulture, is a new example of growth in the narcissus species. Its perianth is of ivory-white and its trumpet is finely proportioned of clear, pale primrose passing into pure white, as opposed to the yellow trumpet of the usual daffodil in the narcissus family. James Fisher, a representative of the Lohrman Seed Co., asked Mr. Earhart for permission to name the flower after his late wife, whose love for flowers was widely known.
