Among the notable plants at the Botanic Garden this fall, one of the most interesting is the Skeleton-leaf plant (onvirandra fenestralis). It is a curious aquatic plant. The one at the Botanic Garden, which is a remarkably good specimen, is about a foot and a half high. The leaves, which are entirely submerged, are from 6 to 8 inches long and about two inches wide.
