The work of the plant breeder of the future must be more and more in the line of hybridizing of hardy types from mild and severe climates in order to combine the good qualities of both types. In hybridization lies much promise for the future. To the hybridization of hardy and tender plants we must look for important and valuable results in the coming years. Many millions of dollars would be saved in the planting of trees and shrubs so that results would come quickly. It is better to pay for plant improvement than to dig up dead plants.
