An Error About Azalea Schlippenbachii
E. O. Birch, Short Hills, N. J.

I wish to compliment the Bulletin on the good reproduction of the photo I sent of R. schlippenbachii (April Bulletin, 1956). However there is a misstatement in the opening paragraph of the article, namely that "they have been much watered". As the article I sent you was not typed I do not have a copy to check. Never the less I think for the information of those who might be interested in R. schlippenbachii it would be well to make correction to the effect that this species requires no more water than any deciduous azalea; which, of course, means not as much as an evergreen azalea.
