Hardy Cacti, Colorado Shrubs and Plants 

ILLUSTRATED CATALOGUE.

D. M. ANDREWS, 
INTRODUCER OF NATIVE COLORADO PLANTS. 

BOULDER. COLORADO. U. S. A. 



TO THE READER. 



In handing you our new Illustrated Catalogue we would invite especial notice to the fact 
that the majority of the plants and seeds offered can be obtained no where else in the world. 
During the past few years we have introduced more really new plants than any other firm. 
Besides shipping to nearly every part of the United States we have sent plants and seeds to 
various points in England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, France, Belgium, Holland, Switzer. 
land, Austria, Servia, Japan, New Zealand and Australia. You need not hesitate to send for 
goods on account of distance. Xot only are we successful in having our plants reach customers 
in good condition, but from numerous reports we find that almost without exception they con- 
tinue to grow and flourish. 

Directions for Ordering: Prices include postage on seeds to any part of the world, and on 
single plants to any part of the United States. We advise shipping by express (or by freight 
for Cacti) except where the quantity is small. Plants go by express at a special rate. Mail 
packages to Europe are restricted to eight ounces. Remit by any safe method, foreign remit- 
tances preferred by International Postal Money Order. We add extras according to the nature 
and size of the order and believe this to be the best way of distributing premiums. 

Thanking you all for your substantial encouragement, we shall take pleasure in supply- 
ing your needs for the coming season. Very truly yours, 

Boulder, Colo., Feb. i, 1901. D. M. Andrews. 



HARDY CACTI. 

The collection of six or seven sorts which we hesitatingly offered some years ago has in- 
creased to more than a dozen distinct sorts and has far exceeded our expectations in every way. 
They were a decided success from the first, both to seller and purchaser, and our sales have ex- 
tended to all portions of the United States, to most parts of Europe as well as to points still 
more remote. Although an outgrowth, biologically, from peculiar conditions of climate and 
habitat, they have proved to be the most adaptable of plants, and make themselves equally at 
home on the parched desert or in the humid climate of England. As to hardiness, they have 
been used with entire success at Minneapolis, Minn., Buffalo, N. Y., several points in Massachu- 
setts, and near the sea coast. Several of the sorts offered are native as far north as South 
Dakota. This data together with observations as to effects of altitude above sea level, etc., 
establish the belief that all of these wiil succeed where Indian corn may be matured, while 
some may be used even farther north. 

Given a sunny position with plenty of drainage so the soil will not remain saturated with 
moisture, especially during winter, and they will flourish with very little care. Rough rock work 
either natural or artificial, affords the ideal position: they will soon take possession and being ev- 
ergreen, their value for permanently covering unsightly places is at once apparent.

The stock we are offering is of good liberal size and with few exceptions will bloom this 
season. This applies particurlarly to plants ordered by express or freight; though the plants 
we are sending by mail are wonderfully good for the price we ask. We prepay postage on sin- 
gle plants at the prices named, but on cactus by the dozen extra postage should be included if 
wanted by mail. It is more satisfactory to have them sent by express or freight. 
Cactus missouriensis. Star Cactus. Plant dwarf, blooming when very small, covered with 
elongated tubercles, each tipped with a star of gray spines. Flowers yellow or salmon, 
followed by scarlet berries. 10 cents each, 75 cents per dozen.

Flowers very large and showy, bright purple, plant extra hardy and a good bloomer. 20

count of the red, purple and white spines with which the plant is covered Flowers num-

be used effectively for edgings for cactus beds, the rockery or elsewhere. Medium size

ARTEMISIA FILIFOLIA. 



Opuntia Camanchica. One of the most showy of all, bearing an abundance of large yellow

late winter. The joints are large, nearly orbicular in outline, the upper half is clothed with

tiful foliage and numerous clustered spikes of red-garnet fragrant flowers 20 2 00 5 

Berberis repens. (See cut.) Very dwarf, evergreen shrub. Holly-like 
foliage, masses of fragrant yellow bloom, followed by conspicuous purple 
fruit. We know of nothing quite so suitable for covering dry or rocky 
banks and slopes, even under shade of trees- It is not particular as to soil,

in appearance from anything else in cultivation. The peculiar habit of 
growth is well shown in our cut. Foliage is small, distinct, and remains 
till late. The long, curled, feathery achenes give a pleasing effect.... 20 200 10 

Cornus stolonifera, Red Osier 10 I 00

other shrubs will grow. The rather large scarlet berries ripen in summer 
and remain until winter. We have a fine stock of bushy, well rooted plants. 25 2 00

(see cut.) 20 2 00 10 

Artemisia frigida. Used extensively as an edging plant. With its sil-

equaled for this purpose by any other hardy perennial. This is absolute- 
ly drought-proof and is not particular as to soil. Per 100, $1.50 10 40 10
