Inspector Lungershausen of Moscow, reports in No. 27 of Wochenschr. f. Gärtnerei und Pflanzenkunde, that the hitherto unknown plant yielding musk, or sumbul root, is now in bloom in the botanical garden at Moscow. When the Russians occupied Bucharia, the plant was discovered and several roots were sent to Moscow, of which but one arrived in good condition. This new umbelliferous plant it was hoped would produce fruit and thus be propagated in Europe. The root has been used in Russia with considerable success in Asiatic cholera.

Professor C. Koch regards the plant as a very interesting one, on account of the strong musk odor of its root, and because the musk deer lives in the same regions. The root has been known for about thirty-five years, without, however, sustaining the high reputation it has gained in Russia, so that it belongs already to the obsolete remedies. It is now mainly employed in perfumery in place of the high priced musk. There may, possibly, be two musk roots, both indigenous to Central Asia, one being exported through Russia, the other from the East Indies.
