Jepson Field Book volume 14 page 150
Description:
Kew Herbarium - Sir Dietrich Brandis has been showing me many kindnesses again.  He is a very pompous old gentleman but it doesn't take much discernment to see that he has a very warm and generous heart beneath his bluff exterior.  In a moment of enthusiasm he said, the other day: "If California will only preserve her redwood forests, preserve them! - then she will be [dowered] with might and power for all time.  Such an endowment to a state, a commonwealth means prosperity for years and years to come."  - And yet Sir Dietrich has never seen California, not yet America. :::::::::  June 15, 1906 - Blepharizona laxa, Antioch, Curran, 1883! Purpus, July 1824, was on Snow Mt, Lake Co. Eschscholtzia californica. A somewhat fasciated flower-stemmed spm. [specimen] collected by Douglas in 1833, the flower mounstrous with many petals - Kew Hb. - Penstemon Bridgessii. Named for Bridges of California. - Lobb, Wm. Introduced Delphinium cardinale to English cult. Described from his spms. He was not the first collector probably. Bot. Mag. t. 4887 is a showy but not especially good plate.
