This is a small genus of dwarf-growing plants which may be used in the rock garden or front portions (edgings, etc.) to mixed and other borders. All are hardy herbaceous perennials, which thrive under the treatment usually given such subjects, and may be propagated by root division in March, at which times they may be most suitably planted. M. TBreweri, M. diphylla, and M. nuda are the best white sorts, blooming from April to July, and growing 3-6 ins. high. M. pentandra is a useful yellow sort blooming in June, and growing 6 ins. high.
