Thanks for plants of Clitoria [1 word illeg.] which however arrived very like herbarium specimens, and I am doubtful if they will recover. It is useless sending herbaceous plants without damp sphagnum round the roots. When the flowering season is over perhaps you can get me a few ripe seeds of the Clitoria which would be sure to grow.
