Mais quelle est cette fleur que son instinct piel
HELIOTROPE, OR TURNSOLE.
This beautiful little plant a native of Peru, flowers in May; but in the greenhouse continues in bloom nearly all the year. It is said to turn to the sun, and thereby has acquired its name; but should a cloud obscure the sky, it droops its head. Its flowers are much esteemed for their beautiful simplicity and fragrance.
