Not easy with the plot method for a hclust object, because 0.05 and 0.25
are getting clipped, because they are out od the "usr" coordinated of
the plot.
Of course you could hack plot.hclust (in Namespace stats) by modifying
.../R/library/src/stats/R/hclust.R as follows (in order to provide a
proper ylim argument):
diff hclust.R-orig hclust.R
91c91,92
< sub = NULL, xlab = NULL, ylab = "Height", ...)
---

< .Internal(dend.window(n, merge, height, hang, labels, ...))

Note that this quick hack is a *dirty* solution.
