This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

New-street- Sqimre. 


Tbis Abridgement of the Arboretum et FruHcettnn Briiannicum contains: — 

1. Characters and short Popular Descriptions of all the species and 
varieties of hardy trees and shrubs now in jBritish gardens, with directions 
for their culture; including the soil most suitable for them, their pro- 
pagation, and thdr uses in the arts, &c. 

2. Engravings of all the species which are described, with the exception of 
half a dozen. The whole arranged according to the Natural System ; all the 
engravin|s being to the scale of two inches to a foot, or one sixth of the 
natural size. 

3. The Scientific Names and Scientific Synonymes of all the species ; and 
their Popular Names in the languages of tne different countries where they 
are indigenous or cultivated. 

4. An Alphabetical Index to all the species and varieties, with their 

5. A Tabular Analysis of the Leaves, by which the name of any species 
of tree or shrub described in the work may, in general, be discovered, from 
a small portion of a shoot with the leaves on. 

6. Specific Characters, Descriptions, and Figures of some species, more 
particulariy of pines, firs, and oaks, which were not in the country in 1838, 
when the large work was completed. 

In a word, though thid Abridgement does not include all the interesting 
and useful information on the natural history of trees which will be found in 
the larger work, or any of the portraits of entire trees which constitute so 
distinguished a feature in it, yet it contains all that is necessary to enable the 
reader to discover the names of the different spedes, and to ascertain their 
culture, propagation, and uses in Britain ; in snort, all that is essential for 
the nurseryman, gardener, and forester. 

The most remarkable circumstance connected with this Abridgement is, 
that the Author has been able to obtain figures of nearly all the species. 
For the drawings or specimens from which these additional figures were 
taken, he is indebted to the kind assistance of various Public Institutions, 
and of several of the most eminent botanists and possessors of herbariums 
and living collections in Europe and North America. 

The Institutions to which he is under obligations are, the Linnean and 
Horticultural Societies of London, the British Museum, tlie Museum of 
Natural History of Paris, and that of Berlin : and the Botanists who have 
kindiv lent him drawings or specimens include the late A. B. Lambert, Esq. ; 
Sir W. J. HooKBR ; Dr. Lindley ; the late Professor Don ; George Don, 
Esq., who prepared the dharacters of the Orders and of the Genera; 
Messrs. Loddigbs ; the late Professor DbCandollb ; M. Alphonse Db 
Candolle ; W. BoRRER, Esq. ; P. B. Webb, Esq. ; Baron Db Lbssert ; 
M. MicHAux; Signor G. Manetti ; M. Otto; M. Charles Rauch; M. 
Francis Rauch, who made most of the drawings; and Drs. Torrby 
and Gray : to all of whom ; to the Curators of most of our Botanic and 
Horticultural Gardens, and those of many foreign ones ; and to all Nurnery- 
men and Gardeners, both at home and abroad, who may have rendered him 
assistance, he begs to return his most sincere thanks. 

To the Council of the Horticultural Society of London he is under especial 
obli^tions, for their permission to make drawings from the cones and other 
specmiens sent home by their collectors, Douglas and Hartweo, and for 
authorising him to procure information from their intelligent and experienced 
•uperintendent of tne arboricultural department of the Garden, Mr. George 
Gordon, A.L.S. ; and to Mr. Gordon he is indebted for the ready and 
obliging manner in which, at all times, he rendered bis assistance.

T'rbbs and shnibs, in common with all other flowering plants, are arranged 
bv botanists in two grand divisions ; viz. the Exogenous, or Dicotyledonous, 
jrlants, the stems of which increase from without, and the leaves of which 
have reticulated veins ; and the Endogenous, or Monocotyledonous, Plants, 
the stems of which increase from within, and the leaves of which have parallel 
v^ns. The first class includes all the hardy trees and shrubs in Britam, with 
the exception of shrubs of the genera Yucca, ^milax, i2uscus, and one or two 
others, which belong to the second class. We shaU arrange the genera and 
species under the same subdivisions, subclasses, sections, orders, and tribes, 
as we have adopted from DeCandolle in our Hortut Britanmcus^ 

Class L EXaGENJE. 

Stems increakngfrom without : Leaves with reOcidated Feins, 

Subdivision I. DICHLAMYDEiE. 

Caiyjf and Corolla distinct^ by wkuA they are distinguished from Svhdkmon II., 

m v^Ach the flowers have only a calyx. 

It is inconsequence of this high developement of the floral envelopes, that 
the greater part of handsome-flowering trees and shrubs are found in Dichla- 
ro^dese, it rarely happening that those with a single floral envelope have any 
bnlliant colouring. 


Flowers with Petals and Stamens inserted in the Receptacle 

This subclass contains all the Polyandrous plants of Linnaeus ; as the sub- 
class Galydfldrae, in which the stamens are seated on the calyx, contains all 
the plants of the Ijnnawin class Icos&ndria. 

Section I. 

CarpeQa, that is, the component Parts <f compound Capsules or Fruits, numerous; 

or the Stamens placed opposite the Petals. 


Ttix DiagnosHe, or JDistinctioe, Character, or, as we shall term it, the Ordinal 
Character, of this order, is thus given by Dr. Lindley : — - Polypetahus, 



with hypogynous stamens [that is, stamens under the pistil! ; arUhcrs bursting 
by iongUudinal slits ; several distinct simple carpella [fruits] ; exstipulate 
ieares, sheathing at their base ; solid albumen ; and seeds without axillus." 
{Nat, Si/st,, p. 6.) — Climbing shrubs scarcely woody, and low suffniticose 
bushes. Natives of Europe, Asia, and North America. 

Leaves generally alternate, but sometimes opposite, generally exstipulate; 
deciduous, or evergreen ; much divided, especially in Clematis, in which the 
leaves are not articulate with the stem. The petioles often serve as tendrils ; 
and are dilated at the base, fonnine a sheath half-clasping the stem. Hairs 
if any, simple. Inflorescence small in Xanthorhiza, and some species of 
Clematis, and large in Pxonia. Seeds small and pointed, except in P^onia. 

The species in British gardens are included in two tribes, Clematldeae 

and Pesonidceee, which contain the genera Cldmatis, -4tr6gene, Paeoniat 
and Xanthorhiza.' 

Tribe I. Clemati'de^. 

Tribal Character. Climbers, characterised by having the aestivation of the 
calyx valvate or indupUcate ; with no petals, or with the petals flat ; the 
anther opening outwards ; the carpels, or seed-vessels, not opening, one- 
seeded, terminated by a tail, which is the indurated style. Seed pendulous. 
Leaves opposite. Deciduous and evergreen climbers. — The genera are two. 
Clematis and iltragene, which are thus contradistinguished : — 

Cle'matis i. Petals none. -4tra'gene L. Petals several. 

Genus I. 


CT*E'MATIS L, The Clematis, or Virgin^s Bower. Lin. Syst. Poly- 

indria Polygynia. 

Ident^leation. The word Klematii was, ai well as Atragene, used by Theophractas, to d^lgoate 
the Cleinatts Vitfiba of LbniKUi. Clematis was used hj Matthiolus, and also bjr Cluaius, who 
applied It to C. Vltlc611a L. and C. cirrhdsa L.

iSerivtUion, The word Clematis, or Klematis, is deriTed from the Greek word klima, a small 
branch of a Tine ; and it is applied to this genus, because most of the plants composing it (limb 
like a vine. The English name of Ladies' Bower was probably adopted from its suitableness for 
covering bowers ; and, as the first kind of clematis brought to England (C. Vitic^lla) was intro- 
duced in l&GB, during the rdgn of Elisabeth, the name of Virgin's Bower might be intended to 
couTey a compliment to that sorereign, who, as it is well known, liked to be called the Virgin 
Queen. Walarebe is compounded of tcaU, a wood, and rebe, the branch of a vine. 

Generic Character. Involucre none, or situated under the flower, in the form 
of a calyx. Calyx of from four to eight coloured sepals. Petals none. Car^ 
pels numerous, aggregate, terminated by a long, ana mostly feathery, tail. — 
Climbing shrubs, with variously cut opposite leaves. The recent herb of all 
the species is acrid, and, when applied to the skin, it occasions blisters. 
(Dons MiU.) The seed is pendulous, and the carpels are one seeded ; 
each is terminated by a persistent style, and does not open until ruptured 
by the germination of the seed. 

Leaves compound, opposite in decussating pairs, without stipules, deci- 
duous or evergreen ; the petiole possessed of a clasping power for attaching 
the plant to contiguous bushes, or similar objects ; in all the species, more 
or less persistent after they are decayed. Flowers in axillary ramose panicles; 
small and white in some, and in others larger and highly coloured. Seed

small, ■ddomteeDdirestedoT its envelope, as that never bunU till ofterit ta 

committGd to the soil. — The species are included in four sections ; rii. 

FUmmula, Vitic^llB, Cheir^pais, and ><iieaonifi6ra. 

Root strong ; the fibres rather straight, and not vcrj' much branched ; ex- 
tended in the soil rather horizontally than peruendicularl;. Stem ligneous, 
not ligid enough to stand erect. Branches the same, and slender. Well 
adapted for coverine bowera, or for oraanteating verandas or trelliawork. The 
fftater number of^the species ripen thrir se^s in EDgland, and ore esaily 
prop^ated bj them, or by layers. The seeds retain their ritelilj for several 
jrean; thej are of slow v^etation, and ou^t to be so»n u soon as gathered, 
m which case they will generally come up the following spring; though, some- 
timea, not till the second spring. All the species require support by props of 
tome kind ; and all, with one or two exceptions, grow freely in any soil that 
if ttderably dry, but niore especially in one that is calcareous. From the 
Bcriditv of^tbeae plants, they are Dot rerr liable to be attacked by insects ; 
nerertadeia, studb and dt^ are occasionally found eating their young herbage.

by, and forming tutis on, the upper 
surface of other shrubs or low trees, 
which they often so completely 
cover as to have the appearance of 
bushes at a Hiffnni-^ The footstalks 
of the leaves are twined about what- 
ever object they approach, and aAer- 
wards become hard and persistent, 
like the tendrils of a vine. The leaflets are either quite entire, or unequally cut ; 

hey have a sweet elmond-like scent. The seeds (^. 5.) have 
long, wavy, feathery, and silky talis, forming beautiful tufts, most conspicuous 
in wet weatfaer. The French gardeners use the twigs instead of withs, for tying 
up their planta ; and moke very neat baskets of them when peeled, and also bee- 
hives. The tw'^ are in the best state for making these articles in winter: and 
their flexibility is increased by holding them to the fire before using them. In 
gardens and plantations the plant is valuable for the rapidity with which it may 
be made to cover naked walls, unsightly roofs of sheds, or low buildings and 
arbours; and for a variety of dmilar purposes.

This Bpeciea is striking in the disnmilarity of its 
flowers to those of most other species. It is of vigor- 
ous growth, end, exclusive of its Sowers, assimilates 
to C, Vitic^Ua; but its stems and branches are less 
decidedly ligneous. The items are numerous, slender, 
and round; the peduncles of the flower are long, 
deflexed towards the tip, rendering the flowers pen- 
dulous ; the se^ls never open, except at their ex- 
treme ends, which are bent back, ^ving the whole 
flower a bdl shape, but with the mouth of the bell 
narrower than toe bodv. The sepals are of a greenish purple or reddish 
lilac on the outside, and of a very 'pale green within. The Ktamens scarcely 
emerge from the sefuls. The carpels are broad and flati an they ripen, the 
(ail becotnes bent in and plumose^ and of a brownish green colour. It

The leaves vary liroa) simple to temate ; and from bang entire to being 
deeply cut. The flowers unpear at the end of December, or the beginning 
of January, and continue tiU the middle or end of April. They are pendulous 
and bcU-sbi^ied, the mouth being of the breadth of a shilling, or more. Their 
colour is greenish white, with some purple on the inude. The sepals are 
downy without, and smooth within. In its native country it is said to climb 
up and overwhelm the trees ; but in England it is a weak plant, not very 
readily k^t. In nurseries it is generally cultivated in pots, and kept in a 
green-bouse, or in a cold-irame. The principal beauties of this species con- 
sist in its bright evergreen verdure, and in the earliness of its flowering in 
spring ; and these properties may be best obtained by training it against a wall 
with a southern aspect. Layers and cuttings.

flowers are produced upon wood dereloped previously to their appearance 
fuid during ttie same season. Hence the winter buds of ^tHigene are larger 
than those of Clematis, from their including the flower as well as the leaves 
of the £iicce«dbKfear. In atragenes the leaves are leas divided than in many 
of the species of Climata, and they are always divided teraately. All the 
species of ^cri^ene described in this work have petioles, which not only clasp 
olyecta, like those of Cl^muit, but maintain the hold for more than the 
season, like the vine. All extremely interesting from the beauty of their 
blomoma. The culture is the same as in 61eniatis, and the propagation

The P^Toa Moutan, m ft sheltered situation, will attain the height of from 
6 ft. to 10 ft. in ten yem i and no plant caa be a more eorgeoua ornament 
of the garden than such a bush, abounding as it does in tcsTcs striking from 
their branched character and Dumerous laments, and in very magnificent 
flowers of extraordinan size ; both leaves and flowers being [iroduced early 
in the soring. On its first importation, this plant was ^wn in sandv peet ; 
but it nai since been found to thrive best in dee^ rich loamy soil. An 
open situation is preferable, both on account of maturing the wood and leaves, 
and for displaying tbe flowers to advantage ; but the plant must be sheltered 
from the cold spring winds, unless it is intended to cover it, when it is in 
flower, with a movable glass or canvass case. The protection civen to this 
plant b necessary, not so much to prevent it from bong ii^ured during winter 
(For it will bear the winters of Pans without any protection, if the wood has 
b««n properly ripened), as to protect the tender leaves and flowers when they 
first appear, m April and Mav, from bdng blackened by the frost. Seeds are 
frequenity produced from nnich new varieties are raised, and any variety 
may be increased by division of the root ; by mfting on the tubers of herba- 
ceous pseonies, any lime from the middle of September to the middle of 
March ; by budding, a mode said to be practised by the Chinese ; by layers, 
which is the most general mode ; bv ringing a branch beneath each bud, and 
then peg^ng down the branch, and covering it with soil ; and by cutting.

Gen, Char. Calyx of 3 deciduous sepals, that resemble petals. CoroUa of 
from 6—9 petals. Stamens numerous. Pistilt numerous. Carpelt disposed 
compactly m spikes, opening by the external angle, 1 — ^2-Beeded, permanent. 
Seeds baccate, somewhat corc&te, pendulous, lumging out beyond the car- 
pels by a very long umbilical white thread. 

Leaves simple, alternate, stipulate, deciduous or evergreen ; entire, large, 
oblong or oval, stipulate. Flowers terminal, solitary, large, odoriferous. 
Seed large, roundish, produced in conical strobiles. Trees and shrubs, 
natives of North America and Asia. 

One of the species is a lofty evergreen tree ; but the others are decidu- 
ous, and partly trees and partly shrubs. The seeds are mostly of a scarlet 
colour. The roots are branched, and yet but sparingly supplied with 
fibres. Magnolias may be cultivated in most parts of Britain, and of the 
middle and southern states of Europe ; but, north of London and Paris, some 
of the species require protection during winter, or to be kept in the green- 
house. A deep sandy soil, and a situation sheltered from the north and east, 
will suit most of the species ; though some, as M. ^laiica, for example, thrive 
best in a moist * peaty soil. Few of the species npen seeds in England, but 
most of them do so in France. From these seeds, or from such as are im- 
ported, all the American species, except M. grandiildra, are most frecjuently 
raised ; but the species from Asia are increased by layers, as are occasionally 
some of the more rare of the American species. In no case whatever would 
we recommend purchasing any species of magnolia not grown in a pot ; 
because plants so grown may be sent to anv distance without injury to the 
roots, which are few and succulent, and easily damaged by exposure to the 
air and light. The hardv species of this genus are included in two sections, 
Magnolioi/rum and Gwilumttf.

(^Juort, Kew.y iii. p. 329.) This seems to be the only variety found 
in a wild state. In British gardens it is a magnificent plant, the 
broad ends of its leaves forming a conspicuous feature, and distin- 
guishing it readilv from the original species, the leaves of which are 
pointed ; but it does not flower freely.

This IS an early variety, introduced from I*aris about 1630. The

produced from the end of May till the approach of winter. 
OtAer VanelKi. In consetjuence of the great demand for this species in 
the nurseries, many slight vanacions have been noticed by cultivators, and 
named as distinct. In the ^rden of the London Horticultural Society, 
in 1834, there were plants with the following names : — ^- g- vera, M.g. 

lah/olia, M,g. exomenai var., and M, g. ruHgmdia. In the London n 

re — M. g.rotundi/olia Svt., M. g. e!"-"-- "' ~' — ' ■" "' 

r. g. rotundifoUa Swt., M-g- eUipUca Ait., and various others, 
in tne nursery of M. ifoy, at Angers, are 18 varieties, among which ere 
included M. g. longijiitia tmdalala, M. g. exonieruti d fifVF demi-doubtc, M. 
g. canalictili, M. g. Jlorii&rula, M. B. fitii' variegdtii. Sec. At Desio, near 
Monia, there is a variety called M-g. rnagordeiuu. 

Selection of Varietiei. M. g. oboBola deserves the preference for the mag- 
nificence of its foliage ; and M. g. exomeruU, because it flowers early and 
freely ; and because, from the fastigiate form of the tree, it is leas liable 
to be injured by h heavy fall of snow ; it seems also to grow &£ter then 
any of the other varieties. Where the tree is to be tmined agunst a wall, 
M. g. pree'cex deserves the preference, on account of the largeness of its 
flowers, and because the^ ^pear early, and continue during the whole 
nunmcr. Jlf. g. ongtofj/abi deserves culture on account of its foliage, which 


is qiihe distinct from ihU of all the other varieties. The species sold in 
the nurseries as the coiiinion brosd-leBred Magnolia grandifldra is fre- 
qiienllj' raised from American, French, or Italian seeds ; and, hence, the 
plants, thou^ they grow freely, do not flower for SO or 30 years after being 

Slanted out. For this reason, wlien it is desired to have plants of the 
[agnAlin srandifldra which will ilower early, those plants which have been 
raised bv layers from flowering trees ought to have the preference i or the 
Exmouth, or some other varietv, should be made choice of, because the 
varieties are always raised fronj layers. 

In its native country, M, grandifldra is a tree varying from 60 ft. U> 
100 ft., or upwards, in neighti but in Europe, excrat in some situat' 
Spnin and Italy, and a few in the South of Engbod, it is chiefly 
considered a* a wall tre& 

A deep sandy loam, dry at bottom, and enriched with vegetable mouM or 
heath soil, seems to suit all the varieties of this species. When these are 
to be trained against a wall, any aspect may be chosen, except, perhaps, the 
north-east. To display the flowers to the greatest advantage, to a spectator 
walking in a direction nearly parallel to the wall, the ground plan of the 
latter should be curvilinear, by which means a direct or front view of a 
considerable portion' would be brought before him. In the London nur- 
series, propagation is generally eflected by forming stools either in warm 
aitiiations m the ojien air, to be protectnl durii^ winter, or in cold-pits. 
Tbe shoots are lajd down in autumn, and require two yean to become 
auffidently rooted for separation ; they are then potted, and kept in pits 
or under glass during winter, and set in the open air, in a shady place, 
during summer, till wanted for final planting. M. grandifldra is also occa- 
sion^y raised from American seeds. In planting, the ball should be care- 
fully broken by the hand, and the roots spread out in eveiy direction, and 
covered with heath mould, or a mixture of leaf mould and nody loam. The 


soil ought to be maile firm to the fibroua roots, not by treading, but by 
abundant watering, and, if the plant be large, by filing with water; that is, 
while the earth is being careTulIy put about the roots by one man, another 
diould pour water from a pot held 6 fl. or 8 ft. above it, so that the weight 
of the water maj' wash the soil into eierj crevice formed by the roots, 
and consolidate it there. Shading will be advisable for some weeks after 
planttng. If the Exmouth variety be chosen, layers will produce Sowers in a 
year or two after bong separated fivm the parent plant, if kept in pots; but, 
when they are planted out, and grow freely, so as to make shoots of 3 or 3 
feet every season, they will probably not flower for three or four years. 
Whether the tree be against a wall or trelh's, or treated as a standard, all the 
pruning it will require, after it has b^un to grow freely, will be, to cut out 
the stump* from whicb the Sowers or the strobiles have dropped off, and 
any dead or decaying wood, and any branches which cross and rub on each 
other. Magnolias against a wall require very little protection, even when 
youn^; and this can easily be gjven by mulching the ground at the roots, and 
covering thdr blanches with a mat, or with the fronds of the spruce fir,

named iL 

A low tree, nearly evei^reen in moist soils, with a slender stem, covered 
with a smooth whitish l^ik. The wood is white and spongy; the young 
shoots of a fine green. The leaves are smooth, of a bluish green on their 
upper surfiice, and whitish or glaucous and a little hairy underncBth. The 
flowers are produced in Hay or June, at the extremity of the last year's shoots. 
They have six concave white petaJs, and have an agreeable odour. The 
spike or strobile of fruits is an inch or more in length, conical, an inch In 
diameter in the widest part, and of a reddish brown colour when ripe. When 
the plant is in a soil supplied with moisture during the summer, it continues 
to produce flowers till the autumn, and retains part of its leaves all the winter : 
in dry situations the leaves drop off. Seeds are frequently ripened in Eng- 
land : they are of a bright scarlet, and they hang down by slender white 
threads, as in ell the other American spe<nes. The young shoots are from I (t. 
to 18 in. in len^h, and the plant, in ordinary circumstances, will attain the 
height of 18 ft. m ten years. Plants are generally raised from seeds imported 
from America, which should be sown in pots of bog earth about the begin- 
ning of March, atid placed in gentle heat under glass. In a year they will be 
fit to transplant into small pots ; and every year they should be shifttd into 
others of s larger size, till wanted for final planting out, H. glaiica Thomp- 
Bonia'iu, and the other varieties, are propagated by layers, wUch require two 
years to root properly.

This tree, both in America and Europe, is remarkable for the largeness 
of its leaves and its flovera. The wood is spongy, brittle, with a lai^ pith, 
soft, porous, and of very little use. The b(ul upon the trunk is grev, 
smooth, and polinhed ; and, if cut while green, it exhales a disagreeable 
odour. In Britain the tree sends up various shoots from the root, to replace 
the stems, which are seldom of long duration ; so that a plant that has stood 
thirty or (brtj years in one spot has had its stems several tunes renewed during 
that period. The leaves are 18 or SO inches lone, and Tor 8 inches broad. 
The flowers are 7 or 8 inches in diameter, with large white flaccid petals; thejr are 
borne on the extremities of the last year's shoots, have a languid luxurious

hot to ripen the wood thoroughly. As it is a short-lived tree, and conte- 

Suently flowen early, there is not the same abjection to reisiiw plants of it 
'om aeed, as there is to ruaing plants in that manner of M. grandifldra, 
which ia along-lived species. The soil should be a deep, rich, sand; loam, and 
the situation sheltereii and shaded. Exposure to the sun is injurious ; and, 
trained gainst a south wall, the plant suflers extremely. A sheltered glade 
in a shrubbery or wood, where the tree is sufficiently distant from others not to 
be injured by theirroots, is the most desirable rite. In the nurseries it is

preserved for several months. The plants should be kept in pots until 
required for final transplanting.

The general appearance of this tree sreatlv resembles that of Magadlia 
trip^tala. The terminal arrangement of the leaves is the same, and it is 
remarkable that in America the two trees are almost always found together. 
In point of size, it exceeds the M. tripetala, both in its leaves and general 
heignt ; but it is seldom found higher than 35 ft., which exceeds the height 
of the other by a sixth part only. The body of the tree is covered with 
a smooth and veiy white bark, by which, in the winter, when stripped ot 
its leaves, it is reatulv distinguished from M. trip^tala. At this season, also, it 
mav be distinguished by its buds, which are compressed, and covered with a 
soft and silvery down ; whereas in M. trip^tala they are prominent and rounded 
at the end. The leaves, in its native country, are 35 in. long, and 9 or 10 
inches broad ; and in vigorous plants, in England, they sometimes even exceed 
these dimensions. They are borne on petioles short in comparison with the 
size of the leaves, and are of an oblong oval shape, pointed at the extremity, 
and cordiform at the base ; their colour is light green above, and glaucous 
beneath* The fruit is about*4 in. lone, nearly cylindrical, and of a vivid rose- 
colour when arrived at maturity. Young plants of this species grow very 
slowly till they are thoroughly established, which will require, in general, 
two years. The year's shoots mav then be from 1 ft. to 2 ft. ; so that in ten 
years a plant may attain the heicht of 12 or 15 feet. It may be considered 
a short-lived tree, and, like all suoi, it comes into flower when young. It has 
rarely, if ever, been propagated in this country by inarching or layers, and 
yer^ seldom from seeds ;^ and, hence, the plant is very spann^ly distributed. 
Soil, propagation, &c., as in M. trip^tala. Seeds are ripened m France, and 
young plants imported from that country, or from North America.

species. Introduced by Messrs. Loddiges, and cultivated in different 
Olhtr Varieiiet, The Bla^dlia acuminata beine fre«]uently raised from 
seed, and the seedlings varviog much in the size of their leaves, and in the 
presence or absence of puoescence, both on the leaves and wood, it would 
be easy to select several^ varieties apparently as distinct as those above 
mentioned, such as M. striata, latif6lia, &c. In the Gold worth Nursery, 
Woking, Surrey, are some which appear remarkably distinct. 

Trunk straight, branches numerous, shoots regularly distributed. The 
leaves are fix>ni 6 in. to 7 in. long, and ftom 3 in. to 4 in. broad, upoL old 
trees, but double that size upon young vigorous-growing plants. Michaux 
describes them as oval, entire, and verv acuminate; but, in the seedlings 
raised in British nurseries, they are found sometimes ovate, nearly orbicuUte, 


and cordate acuminate. The flowera are 4 or 5 inches in diameter, bluish, 
and sometimes white, with a tint of jrellow. They hare but a feeble odour, 
and the petals ore never fully expanded, though, as they are lar^ and 
numeroufl, they have a fine eflbct in the midst of the superb loliagc. 
Plants raised from seeds do not usually produce fiowers till they are 
eight or ten years old, when the tree will probably be from 15 ft. to SO ft. 
in height; but plants raised from layers produce flowers in two or three 
years. The fruit is about 3 in. long, and nearly 1 in. in diameter. It is 
nearly cylindrical, and often a little larger at the summit than at the base : it 
is convex on one side, and concave on the other ; and, when green, it nearly 
resembles a young cucumber: it becomes roso-coloured when ripe; and, as 
in the case of the other species, the seeds, before they drop, remain sus- 
pended for some time by long white threads. The wood of this tree is of a 
fine grain, and of an orange colour. A tree, deep, aud rather moist soil answers 
best for tilts n>ecies ; but, as it is much hardier than any of the others in thia 
section, it will grow in almost any soil that is moderately free, and not over- 
charged with moisture. It is generally propagated in the London nurseries 

by layers, the plants so produced flowering much sooner than seedlings ; but 
the latter, as they make far more durable plants, should always be preferred 
when this species is used as a stock to grah or inarch others on. It is so used

litis tree has a straight trunk 18 or 15 inches in diameter, often without

and from 4 in. to 6 in. broad : on youiw and vigorous trees they^ are often one

at Froinont, near PeziL from ihe seeds 

of a plant of M. conspicua, which stood 

near one of M. purpilreB, in front of tbe 

diitean of H. Soulaoge-Bodin ; the 

flowers of tbe former of which had been acddentally fecundated by 

the pollen of the latter.

This is B very showy tree, distingiushaUe from all the other magnolias 
or both sections, by ita flowers expanding before any of tlie leaves. The 
tree assumes a regular conical shape, with a grey baric and numerous 
branches and twi^s, which generally have a rertical, rather than a horizontal, 
direction. The young shoots are from 1 ft, to 18 in. in length, and the tree, 
in ten years, will attain the beuht of from 10 ft. to IS ft., flowering the second 
or third year after grafting. It is nearly as hardy as the American species; 
flowering freely every year, as a standard, in the neighbourhood of London, 
when the wood has been properly ripened during the preceding summer. A 
rich sandy loam seems to suit Ibis species best; but it will erow in any de^ 
free soil, properly drained, and moderately enriched. The situation, when it 
in to be treated as a standard, ought to be sufficiently open to admit of ripening 
the wood in autumn, and yet not so warm as to urge forward the flower-buds 
prematurely in spring, as they are very liable to be ii^jured by frost; from 
wbicb, however, they may be protected by a very slight covering (during nights 
and frosty days) of^gauze or bunting, stretched over the tree horizontally, 
and sii^^rted by posts. Asmnst a wall, the tree shows itself in its greatest 
beauty; and there it can casd^ be protected, by a projecting coung, from the 
severest weather ever ezpenenceu in the neighbourhood of London. In 
warm situations, sloping to the south or south-east, the tree has a fine effect 
planted in front of a bank of evergreens; and, indeed, wherever it is planted, 
evergreens should be placed near it, and, if possible, so as to form a back- 
ground, on account of (he flowers expanding before the tree is furnished with 
any leaves. The ntedet and all the varietiee are propagated by layers, or 
by inarching on H, purpitrea or on M. acuminate. When inarched on M. 
purpurea, the tree is comparatively dwarfed, by which it is rendered very con- 
venient for use as a shrub, or for growing in pots, and fordng ; but, when it b 
intended to form a tree, it should either be inarched on M. acuminata, or raised 
from layers or seeds. It generally requires two years before the plants can 
uwed from the parent stock. Some plants of this species have been 
from seed ripened in Europe ; and we have no doubt that, when this 
masnificent tree becomes better known nod more generally in demand, it 
will be raised in this way estenaively in France and Italy, and supplied to 
the British nurseries from these countries.

points of difference between it and M, purpurea are, the paler green, 
and somewhat narrower shape, of the leaves ; and the longer and 
more slender form of the flower, the points of the petals of which 
are slightly turned back ; while the flower of M. purpurea is more 
cup^haped, and the petals at the points are rather turned inwards. 
The petals of H. gr^ilia are on [he exterior entirely of a dark purple, 
whereas tliose of H. purpurea melt off* into white at their upper 
extremities. A number of plants of this variety, which stood in the 
Hammersmith Nursery as border shrubs, and flowered freely every 
year, were killed down to the ground in the winter of 1837-8, 
Other Farieliei. In DeCandolle's Prodromiu, and in Don's Atiilgr, three 
varieties arc described : M. p. denuddla Lam., distinguished by the flower- 
ing branches being without leaves ; M. p. dUcnior Vent, which ' 

rather more tenda than the spedes; and M.p_. hUflara Lam., the petals of 

which are white on both atdes. These varieties were ori^netly described 

by Kranpfer ; bnt, as &r as we know, none of them are in British cardens. 

Several plants of tlus species having been rused from seed ripened in this 

country, the plants may exhibit slight shades of ditlerence, as has been the 

case with certun seedlmgs raised in the Brentford Nursery; but, as far as 

we have observed, none of these are worth keeping distinct The only 

variety which we consider truly distbct is M. p. grddiii, considered as a 

speciea by Salisbury and other Ifotanists, but 

which, we are convinced, b nothing more than } 

m nee, or a variety. At Desio, a variety has 

been raited which grows only l^ft, high, and i

A deciduous shrub, attaining, in the gardens 

about London, the heixbt of from 4 ft. to 8 ft. in 

■a many years, and seldom growing much higher 

as a bush. The stems are numerous, but not 

much branched ; the leaves are large, of a very 

dark green ; and the plant prodnces a profurioo 

of flowers, which do not expand Itilly till a day 

or two before they drop off; and which, unless 

the weather is warm, do not expand at all, but 

wilber on the plant, and disfigure it. The 

flowers are large, more or lesji purple (according 

to the season, but never wholly dark purple) 

without, and always while within. The bark, 

when btijised, has an aromatic odour. ' " """"' '"~ 

mtsl apcdes, wbich no garden ought to be without. This species is 
generally considered as requiring a mixture of heath soil, or sandy peat, with 
loam i but in many gardens about London it succeeds perfectly both in sand 


and clay ; the latter soil being rendered free by sand, leaf mould, or manure, 
and drainage. The situation, when the plant is treated as a bush, ousht to be 
open, in order that the wood may be ripened; and the plant should be 
detached, in order that it may be covered with foliage and blossoms on every 
side. North of London, in most situations, it requires a wall, and few plants 
are more deserving of one. Against a wall, it will reach the height of 15 fb. 
or 80 ft. In the London nurseries, it is generally propagated by layers ; but 
it will also strike by cutting, both of the ripened and the herbaceous wood. 
The stools are generally iormed in pits ; or, if in the open ground, they 
are covered with mats during winter. Seeds have been ripened both in Eng- 
land and France ; and from these plants have been raisea in some few nur- 
series. The plants, whether raised from lavers, cuttings, or seed, should 
always be kept in pots till wanted for final planting. This species often 
serves as a stock for grafting the other kinds on, which belong to this section.

In the developeiiient of its lesTes, the tulip tree differs from most other 
treea. The iraf-buds, in general, are composed c^ scales closely imbricated, 
which, in the spring, are distended by the growth ofthe minute bundleof leaves 
that they enclose, till they finally fcil off. The flowers, which are large, bril- 
liant, and on detached trees very numerous, are validated with different 
colours, among which yellow predouiinates ; they hare an agreeable odour, and, 
surrounded by tbe luxuriant Ibllage, they produce a fine effect. The fruit ii 
composed of a great number of thin narrow scales, attached to a common axis, 
and forming a conic^ spike 2 or 3 inches in length. Each fruit contains 60 or 
70 carpels; of which never more than a third, and, in some seasons, not more 
Ibon seven or eight in the whole number, are matured. It is also ol>8crved, 
that, dnring ten years after it begins to yield fruit, almost all the seeds are un- 
productive ; and that, on large trees, the seeds fivm the highest branches arc 
tbe best. The heart, or perfect, wood ofthe tulip tree isvellow, approaching 
to a lemon colour; and Its sap, or albumum, U white. The annual shoots of 
}t>ung plants, in the neighbourhood of London, are from IS in. to Sft. in 
tengto ; and tbe tree will, in favourable circumstances, attain the height of 
from 15 ft. to SO ft. in ten years ; seldom, however, fiowering till it is upwards 
of twenty years old. Tbe bei^t, in England, freijuently exceeds 70 ft. ; ard 
it has ripened seeds here, occaitionally, from which young plants have been 
raised. It ripens its fruit very generally in France ; inougfa it is observed, in 
the Ncaveau Du Havat, that these seeds do not vegetate so freely as those 
whtd) are imparted from America. Deep, kamy, good soil best suits the 
tulip tree; anil the situation most favourable isone which, while it is sheltered 
from high winds, is, at the same time, sufficiently exposed to the light and air 
to adnrit of the maturation of its leaves on every side, and the perfect ripening 
of ita wood, without which it can neither retnst the severe frosts of winter, 
nor fi>rm bloMom buds. The species is seldom, if ever, propagated othemtse 
than by seeds, which come up best in heath soil, very fine mould, or sandy 
loam, m a shady situation, kept rather moist ; but the varieties are multiplied 
by layers or inarching. When the seeds are sown in autumn, ihcy gcnemily 
come up the following spring ; but, sown in spring or tbe banning of summer, 
the^ geoerally remain a year in the ground. The tulip tree, like the magnolias, 
havii^ roots fiimbhed with but few fibres, does not transplant readily ; and, 
therefore, the plants ou^t either to be k^t in pots, or, if in the free ground, 
trannilanted in the nursery ever^ year; or, if neither of these modes be prac- 
ticable, removed to their final situation, when not more than two, or at most 
three, ^ean old. The tree is, like the magnolias, not very patient of the knife, 
other in * young or in an old state; and, from tbe bitter qualities of the 


leaves, it does not seem to be much attacked by insects. As tulip trees raised 
from seed seldom flower before they are twenty or thirty years old, it is much 
to be wished, that nurserymen would propagate them by grafting or inarching 
from flowering trees, in consequence or which the plants would probably 
flower the second or third year. 


Ord, Cham, The distinctive characteristics of this order from that of Magno- 
MhcetB are : Anthen with an enlarged four-cornered connectivuro, which is 
sometimes nectariferous ; albumen pierced by the substance of the seed-coat ; 
leavei without stipules, conduplicate in the bud; properties aromatic. 
— Trees or shrubs mostly natives of warm climates 

Leaves simple, alternate, exstipulate, deciduous ; distinctly articulated with 
the stem, entire ; leaves and branches pubescent when young, the leaves 
commonly minutely punctate, with pelludd dots. Flowers axillary. — The 
hardy species, in British gardens, are included in the genus AsinuTia Adans., 
formerly Anona L., and are natives of North America.

the fhiit, and that of some species of O'rchls. Porcil/a Is a name giren hy Ruiz, in honour of 
Antonio Poreet, a Spanish promoter of botany. Andna is a South American word that signifies a 
mess, or dish of food, to be eaten with a spoon. Uirkria is from tiva, a grspe, to which, however, 
the fruit has little resemblance. The German name, Flaschenbaum, iaak tree, is given from 
the shape of the fhiit

branches, sinoothish. Flowers on short peduncles ; outer petals roundish- 
ovate, four times longer than the calyx. (Don*s Mill,) A low deciduous 
tree. Middle, southern, and western states of North America. Height 
15 ft. to 20 ft. in North America ; 7 ft. to 10 ft. in England. Introduced 
in 1736. Flowers dark purple and yellow. Fruit yellowish, esculent ; 
ripe in August in America, rarely seen in England. Decaying leaves rich 
yellowish brown. Naked young wood dark brown. 

A small tree, densely clothed with long leaves, lying over one another in 
such a manner as to give a peculiarly imbricated appearance to the entire 
plant. The flowers are campanulate and drooping, and appear before the 


leava ; the outer petals are purple, and vary in colour in drfferent plants ; in 
some being voy dark, and in others light, inclining to yellow. All parts of 
the tree have a rank, if not a fetid, amell ; 
said the fruit ia relished by few persons ex- 
cept the ne(?^>ea, who call it papaw. The 
&uit ripens in Ainerica in the b^inning of 
Aurust, and is about 3 in. lone and 1^ in. ' 
thick, oval, irregular, and swelling into in- ^ 
equalities. In British gardeni, the plant is 
always raised from American seeda ; and, to 
thrive, it requires to he planted in sandy peat 
or deep sand, and kept moist. In England 
it may be considered as a curious, slow-crow-

where it was first considered to be a distinct species, till the fruit

the common berberry. It is now, however, propagated by layers; 
the leaves and &uil are considerably larger than those of the species, 
and the fruit is found perfedty sweet and agreeable to est. In 
short, this variety is to the common berberry, what the apple is to

» B. V. 8 aiperma. Tie leedUu Berbem/. — Fruit destitnte of seeds. 
Miller, and also Du Hamel, both say that suckers taken from this 
variety conunouly produce fruit with seeds; that, as the tree grows 
older, the seeds become fewer, and that it is the age of the plant 
that at last causes the fruit to he seedless; in that case this plant 
must be considered more a variation than a rariety. B. v. aspinna 
is said by Du Heiuel to i>roduce the best fruit for preserving; and 
it is from it that the delicious Conjituret d'S'pme vmette, for which 
Houen is so celebrated, are made. {Noun. Dull., iv. p. 13.)

* B, V, l2proandaSi Schrad. — Young shoots brown. Leaves and fruit

All these varieties are in the London Horticultural Society's Garden. 
OlAgr FarielKi. In the Horticultmal Society's Garden a number of 
alleged species of berberries have been raised from seed, which have all 
proved varieties oi B, vulgilris, and most of them so Blight,as to be scarcely 
worth keeping distinct. (See Gard, Mag,, vol- xvi. p, 2.) 
Hie common berberry will live for two or three centuries, without increasing 
much in size. The wood is hard and brittle, of a yellow colour, and but 
little used except for dyeing. The rate of growth, when the plant is young, 
is rapid 1 and, in consequence, in (ive or six years it will attain the boght of 


7 or 6 feet j but it grows slowly afterwards, unleas the suckers are removed 
from it as theji are produced. It is seldom seen above 10 ft. high ; but there 
are examples of trees of it 30 ft. high, probably of 30 years' growth. The 
inner bark, both of the stems and roots, aSbrds a yellovr dye. The leaves are 
agreeably add, and, according to Gerard, were used in his time " to season 
meat with, and instead of a salad, like sorrel." ' The berries are so acid, that 
lords seldom touch them. They are not eaten raw, but are excellent when 
preserved with sugar in syrup, or candied. They are also made into jelly and 
rob, both of which are not onl;^ delicious to the taste, but extremely whole- 
aonie ; and they are pickled in vinegar, when green, as a substitute for capers. 
The plant is cultivated in gardens as a fruit tree or fruit shrub ; and the 
variety, or rather variation, in which the seeds are said to be wanting, and 
that in which the fruit is sweet, are recommended in preference. The plant 
makes an excellent hedge i but there exists a prejudice against it among agri- 
culturists, from its supposed influence in producing blight, or mildew, on the 
com adjoining it. Tbis opinion is of unknown antiquity; but it is now ge- 
nerally conridered to be an erroneous prq'udice.

Very distinct from any of the preceding species or varieties, growing with 
mraordiiiaiy vigour, and ci^le of being formed into a very handsome small 



tree. The root and wood are of a dark yellow colour, and form the yellow 
wood of Persian authors ; they are used as a dye, and, being bitter and a 
little astringent, they, as well as the bark, are employed in medicine. (Royle's 
JHIumL, p. 63.) In Nepal, the fruit of this species is dried, like grapes for 
forming raisins, in the sun. A most desirable plant, calculated to produce a 
splendid effect, both when in flower and when in fruit, upon an open lawn. 
As a rapid grower, it ought not to be planted near slow-growing shrubs oi 

Other Species of B^rberis. — B. Coridria Royle, a species having the same 
general appearance as B. aristata, has been raised in the Horticultural 
Society's Garden, and there are (plants 3 ft. hi^h, but they have not yet flow- 
ered. Plants have been raised in the Horticultural Society's Garden, and 
in some nurseries, from seeds received from Mexico and Nepal ; but, though 
these have new names, it is not certain that they will all prove new species, 
and therefore we consider it better not to record them till they have flow- 
ered. In Hook. Bot. Mit. vol. iii., B. chUentii Gill., B. rtucifotia Lam., B. 
corymbom Hook, et Arn., B. glomerdta Hook, et Am., and B. GrevUlekvtA Gill., 
are described, or mentioned, as having been , found in South America, and 
Dr. Hooker has specimens of them in his herbarium. Numerous varieties 
of Berberit vulgaris are raised in the London gardens, under continental names, 
as if they were si)ecies, but very few of them are worth keeping distinct. 
See in Gard, Mag. for 1840, p. 1., Mr. Gordon's Report on those raised 
in the Horticultural Society's Garden in 1839.

coriaceous, with the margins toothed or serrated. Flowers yellow. FrvU 
mostly black. — Natives of the north-west coast of America, and also of 
Nepal, and perhaps Japan. 

Though some botanists think that the characters ascribed to this genus, and 
those ascribed to Berberis, as exhibited in p. 41., are not sufficient to keep 
them separate as genera ; yet the habits of the species of one, as to the mode 
of growth, foliage, and inflorescence, are so distinct from those of the other, 
as to induce us to adopt the genus Mahonta. The species in British gardens 
are all of comparatively slow ^owth, and admit but of slow multiplication by 
layers, which require to remain on two years, and scarcely at all by cuttings. 
Some of them, however, seed freely, and are readily propagated in this way. 
The seeds of all the species of Mahornta, and also of those of Berberis, if 
sown immediately aflcr they are ripe, and protected through the winter from 
frost, will come up the following spring.

One of the hondsomeat of evci^reen shniba, attaining the height of 6 ft. 
in 6 years, quite hardy, producing a profusion of bunches of yellow Sowers 
during April and May. In its native country it srows in rich vegetable 
soil, among rocks, or in wooda, where it forms a diick and riih undergrowth. 
According to Dr. Lindley, it is "perhaps the handsomest hardy evergreen 
we yet possess. Its foliage is of a nch, deep, shining green, becoming 
purple in the winter ; it bears fruit in some abundance, which consists trf' 
clusters of roundish black berries, having their surface covered with a rich 
violet bloom. It most resembles M. fasciculiris, from which its large shining 
leaves at once distinguish it." (iVnnj/ Cyc, iv. p. 202.) Layers and seeds.

what glaucous on both sunaces. The racemes of flowers are terminal, nume-

perfectly hardy, and produces a promsion of rich yellow flowers in April

sometimes produced. 

Other SpecieM of Mahofua. are no doubt in British gardens ; but as they 
have been only raised lately from Nepal or Mexican seeds, nothing can be 
recorded of them with that degree or certainty and detail which is suit- 
able for this work. MahotdtL lenutfiSa, a Mexican species with pinnate 
leaves, and entire quite smooth leaflets, on very long slender footstalks, has 
been raised in the Horticultural Society's Garden, and may probably be as 
hardy as M. fascicularis ; but this is uncertain. M. nepaUruit, M, Bcanthi'

Leaves sunple, opposite or alternate (the lowest leaves always oppo-

Europe and Africa. 

The Cistaceae have no medical properties ; but the resinous balsamic sub- 
stance called ladanum or labdanum is produced from C. crcticus, C. lada- 
nlferus, C. /aurifolius, and one or two other species. Their use in gardens is 
for ornamenting rockwork, or for keeping in pits during the winter, and planting 
out in flower-borders in spring ; as, from the tenderness of the finer species, 
they are unfit for a permanent place in a shrubbery or arboretum. Most 
of even the laiger-growing kinds require some protection during winter : 
but they will au grow freely in any soil that is dry ; and thev are readily 
propagated by seecb, which, in fine seasons, they produce in abundance, or 
by cuttings ; the plants, in both cases, flowering the second vear. Though 
easily propagated, the Cistaceae do not readily bear transplanting, having 
very few fibres, and these rambling to a great distance from the main root. 
Plants for sale ought, therefore, to be always kept in pots; and, in die 
winter season, they should be protected by some slight covering durins 
severe weather. The hardy ligneous species are included in two genera ; which 
are thus contradistinguished by DeCandolle and O. Don : —

light red bracteas, are very ornamental 
before they expand, resembling, at a distance, the bursting buds of roses. It 
requires no protection ; and may be raised from seeds, which it ripens in 
abundance; and also by cuttings, which, however, do not strike so freely as in 
some of the other species.

in autumn, will strike root; but the beat way is to raise them Irom layers 
or from seed. There was, in 1834, a plant of this species at Minard, in Ar- 
Kyllahirc^ T ft. 9 in. high, with a head diameter, which ia clothed with 
flowen every year. 

Other Speciei of Ciitut are described in Sweet's Oatinetg, as nearly emially 
hardy with the above ; but the experience of the winter of 1837-8 has induced 
lu to omit them. Those who intend to treat them as garden plants, and can 
aflbrd them a little protection during winter, will And 36 species, bendea

Heliinthemum described in Sweet's Citlineie, than to bis obtaining all the sorts 
easily procurable, whatever names they might pass under, and cross-fecunda- 
ting them ED as to produce new forms. There can be no doubt whatever that 
the sorts of both me genera (fstus and Heliinthemum might, by cross-fe- 
cundation, be increased ad mfinittnn ; and, considering their very great beautjf 
a* border and rot:kwork shrubs, we think they merit the attention of culti- 
vators at least as much as many florist's flowera.

Branches numerous, upright, vhite-barked ; their general character being 
rather fiistigiate than spreading. Leaves variously lol)ed ; flowers axillary, 
large, and bell-shaped. Conspicuously ornamental ; and the more valuable, 
beoiuse it produces its flowers at a time of the year when few shrubs are 
in bloom. It forms beautiiiil garden hedges ; more especially in hen the 
difl^erent sorts are planted in a harmonious order of succession, according to 
their colours ; and when the plants are not clipped, but carefully pruned with 
the knife. In the colder parts of Britain, and m the north of Germany, few 
ornamental shrubs better deserve bein^ planted against a wall. It will grow 
in almost any soil not too wet ; but, like all the Jlialvaces, seems to prefer 
one which is sandy, deep, and rich, rather than poor. An open airy situation^ 
where it will ripen its wood, is essential. The single-flowered varieties are 
propagated by seed, which come up true to their respective colours ; and the 
double-flowered varieties are propagated by layers, by grafting on the common 
sorts, and sometimes by cuttings of the ripened wood, planted in sand in 
autumn, and covered with a hand-glass during the winter.

The wood of the lime tree is of a pale yellow or white, close-grained, soft, 
light, and smooth, and not attacked by insects. It weighs, per cubic foot, 
when- green, 55 lb. ; half-dry, 45 lb. ; and dry, 37 lb. ; and it loses a third 
part of its weight, and a fourth part of its bulk, by drying. (BaudriU.^ It is 
used by pianoforte-makers for sounding-boards, and by cabinet-makers for a 
variety of purposes. It is carved into toys, and turned into domestic utensils 
of various Kinds, and into small boxes for the apothecaries. The most elegant 
use to which it is applied is for ornamental carving, for which it is superior to 
every other wood. This wood is said to make excellent charcoal for gun- 
powder ; even better than alder, and nearly as good as hazel. Baskets and 
cradles were formerly made from the twigs ; and shoemakers and glovers are 
said to prefer planks of lime tree for cutting the finer kinds of leather upon. 
The leaves of the lime tree, in common with those of the elm and the poplar, 
were used, both in a dried and in a green stiite, for feeding cattle, by the Ro- 
mans ; and they are still collected tor the same purpose in Sweden, Norway, 
Camiola, and Switzerland. One of the most important uses of the lime tree, 
in the North of Europe, is that of supplying material for ropes and bast 
mats ; the latter of which enter extensively into European commerce. The 
Russian peasants weave the bark of the youne shoots for the upper parts of 
their shoes, the outer bark serves for the soles ; and they also make of it, 
tied together with strips of the inner bark, b&skets and boxes for domestic 
purposes. The outer bark of old trees supplies them, like that of the birch, 
with tiles for covering their cottages. Ropes are still made from the bark of 
the tree in Cornwall, and in some parts of Devonshire. The fishermen of 
Sweden make nets for catching fish of the fibres of the inner bark, separated, 
by maceration, so as to form a kind of flax ; and the shepherds of Carniola 
weave a coarse cloth of it, which serves them for their ordinary clothing. The 
sap of the lime tree, drawn off in spring, and evaporated, affords a considerable 
quantity of sugar. The honey produced by the flowers is consider^ superior 
to all other kinds for its delicacy. London and Wise recommended the lime 
tree, as preferable to the elm, for sheltering gardens or orchards ; because the 
roots do not, like those of the elm, spread out and impoverish all around them. 
A deep and rather light soil is recommended ; but the largest trees are ge- 
nerally found in a good loamy soil. In dry situations, the lime never attains 
a large size, and it loses its leaves earlier than any other tree. Being a tree 
of the plains, rather than of the mountains, it docs not appear suitable for ex- 
posed surfiices : but it requires a pure air rather than otherwise ; for, though, 
It is found in towns on the Continent, and sparingly so in Britain, the smoke 
of mineral coal seems more injurious to it than it is to the platanus, the elm 
or some other trees. It is seldom propagated otherwise than by layers, which 
are made in the nurseries in autumn and winter ; and which become rooted, 
so as to admit of being taken off, in a year. The tree in Britain appears sel- 
dom to ripen its seeds.

Our own opinion is, that ihis is nothing more than a very distinct race of 
the comiDon lune ; notwithstanding the circumstance of its having scales to its 

etals, which no one of the other varieties of T. europEc's is said to possess. 
ren allowing this stnicturc to be permanent in the Hungtirian lime, the tree 
hears such a general resemblance to 2". europffi'a in all its main features, that 
it sccnis to us impossible to doubt the identity of their origin. We are 
strengthened in this opinion by the circumstance of its being found only in 
isolated stations in the Hungarian forests. We have, however, placed this 
lime by itself, rather than among ihe other varieties ; because, from the white- 
ness of its foliage, it is far more obviously distinct than T. c, grandif^lia or 
T. e. parvit&h'a. The tree is at once distinguishable from all the other species 
and varieties by this white app^rance, even at a considerable distance, and 
by the strikingly snowy hue oi its leaves when they are ruffled by the wind. 
Its wood and shoots resemble those of the common lime ; but it does not 
attain the same height as that tree.

On a general view of the trees, the most obvious external JUfercnlial che- 
TBcterUtics or the European and American limes adpear to ua to be, that 
the fonocr have r^utarly cordate, and the latter obliquely cordate, leaves. 
The other American limes we consider to be nothing more than varieties of 
this species. Layera. These trees only thrive in warm sheltered situations. 
The American lime is readily distinguished from the European limes by the 
largeness of its leaves, which are 3 in, to 4 in. wide, heart-shaped, acutely 

pointed, coarsely and mucronately serrated, deep green and glabrous on their 
upper sides, and pale green beneath. Some of them hnve a tendency to be 
slightly pubescent ; hut they are generally smooth and shining. In winter, 
this species is readily recognised by the robust appearance of the trunk and 
branches, and by the dark-Srown colour of the bark on the young shoots. 
This circumstance alone is a very marked distinction ; and has, no doubt, pro- 
cured for the species the name of the black lime tree. 


Other American Lmtet, — T. p, leptoph^Ua Vent, is mentioned by Torrey and 
Gray as having the leaves very thin and papyraceous. There were in 1834 
other varieties in the H. S. G., but the plants had not attained sufficient size to 
enable us to state any thing with certainty respecting them. All the species 
and varieties of American limes are delicate in this country ; they are readily 
injured by spring frosts, but, where they thrive, are readily distinguished from 
other limes by their very large cordate leaves, and rough bark, even on the 
^oung wood. Some of the oldest and largest American limes in England are 
m Gatton Park, Surrey, near the lake ; and at Croome, near Upton upon 
Severn. There is an old tree, also, at Purser's Cross, Fulham ; and a re- 
markably handsome young tree at White Knights.

floweni are of the eanie size, white, with criaped petals, purple filaments, and 
blue anthers. Thin plant is not so extensively cultivated as the other, from 
its being more tender, and of somewhat slower growth ; but its beauty, and 
the circumstance of its fioweting from July to September, when but few trees

plant. Mllle Pertuls, a thousand pores, is erldently derlTea from the tame touree. The English 
name, St. John*s Wort, and the German one, Johanntskraut, are taken from the country oeople 
formerly, both in England and Germany, being in the habit of gathering this plant on St. John's 
day, to use it to protect themselves from evil siiritt. This plant, with some others, was emploved 
to make what was called John's fire, which was supposed to be a tecivity, for those who kindled it, 
against witchcraft and all attacks of demons. For this reason, alto, the Hypericum received the 
name of Fuga Dsemonum.

Derivation, This species was called ilndroscSium by the old writers on botany, on account of the 
tinge of red in dUferent places on the stems, and the redness of the anthers, which were supposed 
to give it the i^ipearance of being spotted with blood. It was called Constantinopolitan from its 
having been found near that city, in 1676, by Sir George Wheeler, Bart. The large size of its 
flowers is remarkable, and has given rise to most of its otiier names. The name of the Terrestrial 
Sun isTery appropriate to the large golden flowers, with their long ray-like stamens, lying glittering 
on a bed or dark green shining leares, which spread orer the surface of the ground. The 
number and length of the stamens are, doubtless, also the origin of the name of Aaron's Beard.

Valuably for covering banks, rockwork, or the surface 
of the fi;round in old shrubberies or picturesque woods, 
especially for the latter purpose, as it thrives perfectly well 
under the drip and shade of trees. The root creeps, and a 
small plant wul soon extend itself in every direction, espe- 
cially if the soil be light, so as to cover a great many ne. jf-djcinum. 
square yards in a very short space of time. It is an excellent shelter for 
game. It may be readily increased to any extent by division.

Decaying leaves rich yellow in some, and red or brown in others. 
Several of the species produce useful timber; and sugar is one of the con- 
stituent parla of the sap of all of them. They all prefer a utuation shel- 
tered ratner than exposed ; a free, deep, loamy soil, rich rather than sterile. 

and neither very wet, nor very dry. They are propagated by seeds and layers, 
or by grafting. The maturity of the seed may be proved tiy opening the key, 
and observing if the cotyledons are green, succulent, and fresh ; if the green 

colour of the cotyledons is ^vanting, the seeds are good for nothing. The 
seeds of all the species may either be sown in autumn, after they are gathered, 
or in spring : and the latter method ia preferable where moles abound, as they 
are vciy fond of the seeds. Sown in spring, they come up in five or six weeks 
afterwvds ; with the exception of those of the A. campcslre, which never 
come up till tbe second or third year. The aeeds should not be covered with 
more than a quarter to half an inch of soil. The surface of the ground in 
which they arc sown may be advantageously shaded with leaves, fronds of 
ferns, heaui, or straw.

Leaves pale green beneath, the vdns of the lower surface and petioles 
minutely vilHius, pubescent i wings of the fruit a little more diverg- 
ing. (Tor. and Gray, i. p. 848.) Michaui, who considered this 
variety a species, says the leaves resemble diosc of the species in 
every respect, except that they areof a darker green, and of a thicker 
texture, and somewhat more bluntly lobed. The tree is indiscri- 
minately mixed with the common sugar maple, through extensive 
ranges of country in New Hampshire, Vermont, and Connecticut i 
but is readily distinguished from it hy the smaller die which it at- 
tains, and the darker colour of its leaves. The soil in which it 
flourishes best is a rich, strong, sandy loam ; and there it usually 
grows to the height of 40 or 50 feet. 
Closely resembling A. plataniildes in foliage, except in bung somewhat 


glaucous beneath, and in the fruit being much more divergent. Bark of the 
trunk white. Leaves 3 in. to 5 in. in length, generally wider than long. The 
buds have a fine ruddy tint, especially in spring before they expand. The tree 
in England is raUier tender, and never attains a large size ; but in America the 
timber is valuable, and the sap produces sugar. American seeds.

variety was found in a bed of seedlings, in Saunders's Nursery, 
Jersey, about 1828, and is now to be met with in all the principal 
nurseries. The tree hns a very singular effect when the leaves are 
slightly ruffled by the wind, alternately appearing clothed in purple 
and in pale green. In spring, when the leaves first expand, the 
purple bloom is less obvious than when they become matured, at 
which time it is very distinct.

rieties : A. P. tlenoptera, A. P. laacroplera, aid A. P. microp/era, which Jifler 
ID tbe proportions of the wings of the Iteys, and do not apiiear worth farther 
notice. In all seed beds ami young plantations some or the plants will bo 
found with the petioles and the buds red, and others with the petioles and 
the buds greenish jrellow : such trees, when of considerable size, are very 
distinct in their general aspect, when in bud, and when they have newly 
come into leaf; but after midBunimer, when the leaves are Ai!ty maturetl, 
and begin to get rust^, the trees are scarcely distinguishable. Uillerent 
plants also diSbr much in the time of their coming into leaf, and of drori- 
ping their leaves i and some of the more remark&le of these it might be 
worth while to pr<^agale by extension. 

The srowth of the common sycamore is verj' rapid compared with that of 
must oUer species of A'ccr, particnlBrly when it is in a deep, free, rich soil, 
and in a mild climate. It arrives at its full growth in 50 or 60 years ; but it 
requires to be 80 or 100 years old before its wood arrives at perfection. In 
marshy soil, or in dry sand, and even on chalk, the tree never attains an)' size. 
It produces fertile seeds at the age of SO years, but flowers severul ^ears 
booner; sometimes even perfecting its seeds sooner also. The longevity of 
the tree is from 140 to 200 years, though it has been known of a much greater 
age. The wood weighs per cubic foot, newly cut, 64 lb. t hatf-drv, 56 lb. ; 
dry, 48 lb. It loses, in drying, about a twemit part of its bulk. When the 
tree is ] oung, it is white ; but, as the tree gets older, the wood becomes a tittle 
yellow, and often brown, especisUy towards the heart. It is compact and 
firm, without being very hard ; of a line Brain, sometimes veined, susceptible 
of a high polish, and easily worked, either on the bench, or in the turning- 
lutbc. It does not warp, and is not likely to be attacked by worms. It is 
used in joinery and turnery, and cabinet-making ; by musical instrument 
makers ; for cider-presaes : and, sometimes, for gun-stocks. Formerly, when 
wooden dishes and spoons were more used than they are at present, it was 
much in demand, especially in Scotland, by the manufacturers of these articles. 
As underwood, the sycamore shoots freely from the stool, to the age of 80 or 
100 years. As a timber tree, it is most advantageously cut down at the age 
of 60 yearn, or from that age to 100. As an ornomenul tree, it produces the 
best effect, cither singly, or in groups of two orthree, placed sufficiently near 
to form a whole, but uot so ns to touch each other ; and in rows or avennes. 
The varieties with variegated leaves arc very ornamental in the beginning ot 


Biunmer ; but their leavei are almost alwava more or less imperfect, especiully 
oil the edges, and &II olTmuch soooer in the autumn than those of die species.

Varieliet. There are several names in nurserymen's catalogues, such as A. 
coccfncum. A- macrocirpum, A. fl6ridum, A. Pi\ia which are only very 
alight varieties of A. eriocfirpum. The last-named variety, introduced by 
Messrs. Booth, has received the absurd name of I'Svia, from the upper 
surface of the leaves being Klighlly wrinkled, somewhat in the manner of

DiEtiaguished from A. 
rubnim by the leaves 
being more decidedly 5- 
lobed, the l(A>ex deeply cut, 
and the whole leu more 
tomentose. A very desir- 
able species, from the ra- 
pidity or its growth, the 
grnceTul divergent direction 
of its branches, the beauty 
of its leaTes, and the pro- 
fijnon of its early flowers. 
In mild seasons, these flow- 
ers bc^io to burst from 
their buds in the first week 
. in January ; and they are 
often fully expanded by the end of Februarj 

r be^ning of March. It 
requires a deep free soil, and more moisture t^au most of the other species. 
It ripens its seeds, both in America and Britain, by midsummer, or earlier ; 
and, if these are immediately sown, they come up, and produce plants which 
arc 8 or 10 inches high by the succeeding autumn.

In Eo^and distinguished at si^t irom A. erioc&rpum by the leaves beiiw 
much less cut, and less white beneath, and by the tree being generally less vi- 
gorous. The red-flowered maple, whether we r^ard the b^uty of its flowers 
and opening leaves in early spring, its red fruits in the banning of summer, 
or its red (oliage in autumn, deserves to be considered one of the most orna- 
mental of hardy trees- Contrary to the general character of the maples, 
thU species is said to thrive best in moist soil, which must, however, at the 
same time, be rich ; and, for the tree to attain a large site, the situation ought 
to be sheltered. In Britain it is chieflv propagated by layers ; but, on the 
Continent, almost always by seeds, wnich ripen before midsumniK, even 
sooner than those of ^. erioc&rpum, and, if sown immediately, come up the 
same season. The seeds, even when mixed with soil, do not keep well ; and, 
in general, but a small proportion of those sent home torn America vegetate

will come up the succeeding summer. All the other sorts, as being varieties 
of the species, are propagated by budding or grafting. Soil deep sandy loam. 
Only the first three sorts described below can be considered as true horse-

A tree of the largest size, with an erect trunk, and a pyramidal head. The 
leaves are large, of a deep green colour, and singularly interesting and beau- 
tiful when they are first developed. M^en enfolded in the bud, they are 
covered with pubescence, which falls ofl* as the leaves expand. The growth, 
both of the tree and of the leaves, is very rapid ; both shoots and leaves 
being sometimes perfected in three weeks from the time of foliation. The 
wood weighs, when newly cut, 60 lb. 4? oz. per cubic foot ; and, when dry, 
35 lb. 7 oz. ; losing, by drying, a sixteenth part of its bulk. It is soft, and

unfit for use where greal strength, and durability in the open air, are required ; 
nevertheless, there are manj purposes for which it is applicable when sawu 
up into boards ; Euch as for flooring, linings to carts, packing-csscs, &c. The 
nuts may be used when burned as a kind of ley, or substitute for soap. The 
nuts, if wanted for seed, should be gathered up an soon as they drop, and 
dther sown or miied with earth ; beoiuse, if they are left exposed to the air, 
they will lose their germinating prc^rties in a month. Some nuraerynicn 
cause the nuts to germinate before sowing them, in order to have an opportu- 
nity of pinching off the extremity of the radicle; bj which means the plants 
are prevented irom forming a taproot ; or, at least, if a taproot be formed, it 
is of a much weaker description than it otherwiae would be, and the number 
of lateral fibres is increased ; all which is favourable for transplanting. When 
the tree is intended to attain the largest size, in the shortest time, the nut 
ought to be sown where the tree is finally to remain ; because the use of the 
taproot is mainly to descend deep into the ioii, to procure a supply of water, 
which, in drv soils and seasons, can nerer be obtained in sufficient quantities 
by the lateral roots, which extend themselves near the surface in search of 
nourishment and air.

vigorous growth with the common hornechestnut ; the leaves are larger, and 
ofa bright green: on the Bupposltion that this is the ^. ohioensisof ^i^j'.nnd 
Tor.4 Gray, we have no doubt in our own mind that it is only a variety of the

in the case of large plants on moist soil, for three months or longer, forming 
one of the greatest noral ornaments of tlie shrubbery, at a season when very 
few trees or shrubs are in flower. The fruit, which is small, seldom ripens 
in England : but in America it is said to be eaten, boiled or roasted ; and 
M. Poiteau, accordingly, has included this species of Pkvia in his list of fruit 
trees. Layers; or seeds, when they can be procured, and which ought to be 
sown as soon as possible after they are ripe. 

Ottter Kinds of Patna. — PcIvIbl, caUJvmica (JS. calif6mica iVu^.) has been 
described by Torrey and Gray, but is not yet introduced. P. Lponii is in the 
Hort. Soc. Garden, but has not yet flowered there. We have omitted in this 
edition P. h^brida, described by DeCandolIe as a truly intermediate plant be- 
tween P. rubra and P. flava, with yellow, white, and purple flowers ; because 
the only plant which we have seen bearing this name, that in the Hort. Soc. 
Garden, has the flowers yellow, and appears merely a very slight variety of 
P. flava. In nurserymen*s catalogues there are several names which we 
have not noticed ; for the truth is, that the diflerent kinds of JE'scnhis and 
P^via cross-fecundate so freely, and seedlings vary so much, that there is 
no limit to the number of varieties that might be produced. The great error 
(because it creates so much confusion in the nomenclature} consists in giving 
these varieties to the world as species. 

It is almost unnecessary to observe, that all the most valuable varieties, 
of both ^^sculus and Pavia, are best perpetuated by budding or grafting, and 
that collectors ought always to see that the plants they purchase have been 
worked. Pavia rubra as a tree, P. discolor either as a shrub or grafted standard 
high, and P. macrostachyaas a shrub, ought to be in every collection, whether 
small or large. Pavia numilis, when grained standard high on the common 
horsechestnut, forms an ornament at once singular and beautiful. As the 
horsechestnut is to be found in most plantations, those who are curious in the 
species and varieties might graft them on the upper branches of old trees ; or 
young trees might be headed down, and one kind grafted on each.

0/4«- SjKcia of Vftii, — The 
Amaican species have been consi- 
derably reduced in number by 
He«ar«. Torrey and Qray; but it 
appears to us, that the reduction 
might bare been carried stilt farther. 
Some species are described aa na> 
tives of the Himalayas, and 130 
varieties are noticed by Rafinesque 
in his Monograph of AmeriaiTi Finei 
(see Card. Jl/i^., vol. viii.p.SU.); 
but they are not yet known in this 
country. Indeed, Irom the appeal^ 
ance or the above-described spcciea 
in the Hort. Boc. Garden, we are 
mudi inclined to think they are 
only varieties of the same species. 
They certainly do not differ more 
from each other than the known 
s of the common cultivated

and are eaten in Germany by children. The y 

flowers contain a great deal of honey, and ^ 

are very attractive to bees. In the London 

nurseries, the pian» is generally cultivated by 

aide suckers, Dy cuttings put in during the j^^ 

month of September, or by seeds, which V/ f^ 

are ripened in abundance. The seeds ought Uj 

to be sown as soon us they arc ripe i be- 

cause, as they contain an oil, they very soon "°' *^ — ■ — —

are acnd, poisonous, and fetid when bruised. The capsules are of a fine 
rose colour, except in the white-capsuled variety, and the seeds are each 
invested with an aril of a fine orange colour. In a state of cultivation the 
tree attains the height of 30 ft. or upwards, and, though almost entirely neg-

Derivation. Theophrastut, and other Greek authort, named the holly Agrla ; that it, wild, or of 
the fieldt ; and the Romant formed from thit the word Agrifolium ; and called It, also. Aqai. 
folium, from aeutttm, sharp, and foUmn^ a leaf. C. Bauhin and Loureiro first named it /lex, on 
account of the resemblance of its learet to those of the Qu§rcut i^lex, the true Ilex of Vir^l. 
LInnaus adopted the name of Plex for the genus, and preterred the name of ifquifblium for the 
most anciently known species. The name of Holly is, probably, a corrupUon of the word holy, 
as Turner In his Herbal calls It Holy, and Holy Tree ; probably from its being used to comme- 
morate the holy time of Christmas, not only in houses, but in churches. The German name 
Christdom, the Danish name Chrittom, and the Swedlth name Chrltttom, seem to Justify this 

Gen, Char. Calyx 4— 5-toothed, permanent. CoroUa 4— 5-cleft, subrotate. 
Stamens 4—5, alternating with the segments of the corolla. Ovary sessile. 
Stigmas 4. Berry containing 4—6 1-seeded puts. (Don's MUl.) 

Leaves simple, alternate, exstipulate, mostly evergreen ; ovate, oval, or 
ovate-lanceolate, coriaceous, serrated, toothed, or quite entire. Flowers 
axillary, aggregate, small, generally white. FrvU a drupe, mostly red. — Low 
trees and shrubs, chiefly evergreen, natives of Europe, North America, and 
the Himalayas, generally of slow growth, and of long duration. Loamy 
soil, rather dry than moist. *

May. Fruit red ; ripe in September, and remaining on the tree all the 
winter. The lower leaves are very spinous ; while the upper ones, espe- 
cially on old trees, are entire. Decaying leaves yellow, dropping in June 
or July. 
Varie^i, In general the variegation of plants, more especially of trees and 
Bhruhi, is accompanied by a ragged, or otherwise unhealthy, appearance in 
[he leaves ; but the hotly is one of the vety few exceptions to this rule. 
The variesBtions of the holly are chiefly confined to the modification of 
white and yellow in tlie leaves : but there are some sorts in which the 
variation results frotn the state of the leaves with reference to prickles, to 
magnitude, and to form ; and others consist of differences in the colour 
of the fruit, which is red, yellow, or white, and black. These varieties are, 
for the roost part, without names, and those in the following groups ap- 
pear tons to be all that are truly distinct -, but theshadesof difference under 
each name in theM groups are almost inoumerable.

Under the general name of variegated hollies, twenty or thirty varietiet; 
aomeof them with, and some of them without, popular namea, are obtainable 
in the principal London nurseries. Having examined and compared the 
different shades of validation in the plants m the very complete collection 
of Meanv. Loddiges, we think they mfty be all included in the following 

f L A. 16 AJbo-marffmatum Hart. — Leaves with white edges. Of this 
variety the subvarieties in Loddigea'a arboretum are maHced 5, 15, 
IB, and 24, which have all long and narrow leaves, with edgings of 
white or pale yellow along tbetrmargiDa; and 4^6,7, 12, 17,22,83, 
and S8, which have larger leaves, and a greater breadth of margin 
variegated ; the white or pale yellow forming in some cases one 
third, or even one half, of the surface of the leaC 
1 1. A. IT airt«-margiii^tim Hort. — Leaves with yellow edges. The 
following subvarieties are in Hessrs. Loddigea'n arboretum, Nos. 19 
and 20 with dark yeUow margins; and Nos. 1, 2, 8, 9, 10, 13, and 
29, with margins of dark and light yellow. Another subdivision of 
this group connsta of plants with broad leaves, in what may be 
called a transition state from green to variegated, viz., with greenish 

Cw or very pale green blotches or marMns. When such plants 
me old, they are generallv very dialinctW variegated with yellow. 
Examplea in the Hackney artwreOun are Nim. 3, 20, and 21. 
1 L A. 18 iiio-pktHm Hort. — Leaves spotted with white. This variety 
baa a conHoerable portion of the centre of the disk of the leaf white, 
and of a somewhat transparent appearucej the edges of the disk 
of the leaf being green.

lowing subvarieties are in Messrs. LodtUges's arboretum. Nos. 11, 
14, 16, 26, 27, and 30. 
1 I. A 20 Jlrai arehilemn Hort. — The hedgehog holly with leaves

t I. A. 24 fridH ragro Hort — Fruit black. 
The holly makes the most impeneUnble and the most durable of all vege- 


table fences ; and it has this great advantage over deciduousJeaved trees and 
ahrubs, that it is seldom liable to be iittocked hyiasects; and, if shorn, tJie 
outer aurface becomes impenetrable even to birds, who cannot build ihcir nests 
in it. The wood is almost es white as ivory, except in the centre of very 
old tnmks, where it is somewhat brown. It is very hard, with a 6ne gnun, 
susceptible of a high degree of polish, and is readily stained with black, green, 
blue, or red. Tt weighs, when dry, at the rate of 471b. 7oz. jier cubic foot. 
The veins of the wood, end its annual layers, are so small ta scarcely to be 
perceptible. It is applied to a greet many purposes, in Joinery, cabinet-making, 
and turnery; in ^giueering, in mathematicBl-instnunent-iDakingi and it is 
even used for wood-eneraving. The bark affords birdlime, which is prepared 
by boiling and evaporation. Theliolly attains the largest size in a rich sandy 
loam ; but it will grow, and even thrive, on almost any soil, provided it is not 
overcharged with moisture. As its seeds, like those of the hawthorn, do not 
come up the first year, to save ground and the expense of weedine, the ber- 
riet are commonly buried in the soil, or kept mixed up in a heap of earth for 
one year; after which, if sown in autumn, they will come up the following 
June. The rariedea are propagated by budding and grafting. These ope- 
rations are performed at the usual times, and in the usual manner ; but it has 
been observed by Tschoudi, that cleft-grafting does not succeed nearly so 
well with the holly as whip-grafting or budding. In England, the stocks 
budded or grained on are generally of four or five years' growth j and the 
grafting is effected in March, and the budding in July. The variegated kinds 
ore atBO propagated - by cuttings, which are made in autumn, of the ripened 
summer shoots. They are planted in sandy soil, in a shady border, and covered 
with hand-glasses ; and they generally put fordi roots the following spring. 
Holly hedges should never be clipped, because, when the leaves are cut 
through the middle, they are rendered unsightly ; and the xhoots should 
thereiore be cut with a knife close to a leaf. The proper season for cutting 
would appear to be just after the leaves have attained maturity ; because 
at that season, in tlie holly, as in the box, the wound is comparatively soon 
obliterated by the healing over produced by the s^l abundant sap.

The general aspect of* this plant is that of /^lex Dahoon. It is a handsome 
shrub, well deserving a place m collections. 

Other Specie* of Prinos. — P. d^hiut O. Don. and P. atomdriut Nutt. have 
been introduced, and, probably, some others; but we have only noticed 
those of which we have seen living plants, and which we consider to be 
tolerably distinct, though there are probably only three species of Prinos ; 
two of which are deciduous, and the other evergreen.

They are ornamental in British ^rdens and shrubberies, chiefly from the va- 
riety of their foliage, and from their berries ; but some of them, as Ceanothus, 
from their flowers. They are all of easy culture ; and they are propagated by 
seeds, cuttings, or layers. The hardy genera in British gardens are six ; which 
are characterised as follows : —

Deciduous or evergreen shrubs, with the tips of their branches often bc'

them ere sub.procunibent or procumbent ; all of them, except the latter, being 
distinguiihed by an upright stiff mode of erowth, and niunerous strong thorns 
in thetr wild state; whence the name of ram, or buck, thorn. The flowers 
in alt the species are inconspicuous ; but R. ^lal^nus and its varieties are 
most valuable evei^een shrubs, and several of the other species are orna- 
mental, both from their fohage and their fruit ; the latter of which is also 
usefiil in dyeing. All the species are easily propuated by seeds or layers, and 
roost of them by cuttings i and they will all grow m any soil that is dry. They 
all vary much in magmtude by culture, in common with most plants which, in 
a wild state, grow in arid soils.

the large proportion of the leaves which is white, is more tender than 
some of the others. It generally does best against a wall, and is well 
worth a place there, on account of its splendid appearance, especially 
in winter. 

In British gardens, this shrub is^ particularly valuable for the rapidity of its 
growth in almost any soil and situation, more especially the narrow-leaved 
variety. It is less injured by the smoke of coal than most other evergreens. 
The species, and all the varieties, are readily pro- 
pagate by cuttings, which are taken off in autumn, 
and planted in sandy soil, in a shady border, and 
covered with a hand-glass. As the roots are not 
very productive of fibres, when large plants are 
chosen, they should be such as have been reared in 
pots, in order that they may receive no check from

» m A. M. S/iHii variegitU. — The variegated-leaved Hacqui Aristotelia. 

In Chili this plant forms an evergreen shrub, with diflViae branches, growins 
to the height of 6 ft. The flowers are not very showy ; but they are succeeded 
bv berries about the uze of a pea, very dark purple, and at length becoming 
black, iriilch are add and eatable. In British gardens, it forms a sub-ever- 



green slirub or low tree, of very vigorous growth ; so much so, in a young 
state, that, from the shoots not being maturra, they are frequently killed down 
to the ground, and th^ foliage more or less injured. Notwithstanding this, the 
aristotelia frequently flowers, and even ripens fruit ; and, in all probability, 
if the tree were planted in dry and rather poor soil, so as to grow slowly, and 
not make more wood every year than it could ripen properly, it would attain 
a large size, and form a very handsome hardy ever- 
green shrub or tree. The plant grows vigorously in 
any common garden soil, producing shoots 3 ft., 4 ft., 
or 5 ft. in length when young ; and it is readily pro- 
pag^ited by cuttings or by layers.

follows : — 

T R. /. 1 arboriiceni. — A tree between 10 ft. and 25 ft. high ; leaf slightly 

down J beneath. 
• B. (. 2fruliicent. — Shrubby, between 8ft. and 10ft. high; and iU 

leaf downy and whitish beneath. 
X R. /. 3 arvlifidra. R, TJridiHora ?oir. — Ftowera green. Possibly 
nothing more than the male plant. 
Shda typhina, in British gardens, is either a large shrub, or a low tree with 

a woody stem and a head composed of many irregular branches, generally 

erookea and deformed. The young shoots are covered with a so fl velvet-like 

down, reaembUng that of a young sti^'i horn, both in colour and texture \ 

whence, and probably also 

from the crookedness of the 

branches, the common name. 

The cellular tissue of the wood 

ia of an orange colour, with a 

strong aromatic odour, and a 

copious resinous juice. The 

leaves are S ft. to 3 ft. long, and 

they are very conspicuous in 

autumn, before they drop off, 

when they change to a purphsh 

or yellowish red. The flowers 

are produced in close spikes at i' 

the ends of the branches ; they ' 

are often polygeraous or di- 

(Ecious by abortion, and the *•*■ ■ii»> "ip*!""- 

female ones are followed by seeds enclosed in woolly, simple, succulent coven; 

As the plant is of open irregular growth, and not of long duration, it should 

never be placed where it is intended to act as a screen. Like all objects the 

chief beauty of which consiiits in their singularity, it produces the most striking 

I'Sect when standing alone on a lawn.

Derivation. Called Duvada, after M. Duoau, a French botanist, known as the editor of the 

original edition of Richard's Analffudu FruUi aodforsomeobserratlonson Veronica.** (Undietf, 

inBot. Reg., t IS68.) 

Gen. Chcar, Cafyx persistent, with 4—5 s^;ments. Corolla of 4^— ^5 concave 
petals. Sexes monoeciously poljrgamous. Stamens 8 — 10, inserted under a 
pitcher-shaped calycine disk, which had as man^ sinuses and as many teeth 
as there are stamens : these are opposite the smuses, half of them opposite 
the petals, and half alternate with them. Anthers in the fruit-bearing flowers 
barren. Ovary conical. Sti/les 3 — 4. Stigmas capitate. Fhdt a globose 
drupe, with a leathery nut. — Chilian trees and shrubs, becoming spiny as 
they advance in growth. (Dec. ProdJ) 

Leaves simple, alternate, exstipufate, evergreen; generally oblons or 
ovate, toothed, small. Flowers in axillary racemes, greenish yellow. — l^ere 
are four species in cultivation, which are all very handsome evergreen bushes, 
with bright shining foliage. 

The foliage emits, when bruised, a strong but not unpleasant odour, of 
the nature of turpentine. The leaves of D. ovata, and, doubtless, those of 
every species of Duvaua, when thrown upon water, move about in a manner 
which may be compared to a fleet of ships employed in manoeuvring, or to 
persons engaged in dancing. Seeds have been produced plentifully in the 
Hort. Soc. Garden by D. dep^ndens, trained to a south ^all ; and seeds of 
D. latifblia are often imported from Chili. Cuttines of the ripe wood root 
in sand, under a bell-glass, in a gentle heat. D. dep^ndens was but little 
injured at Kew, in the Chelsea Botanic Garden, and in the Hort. Soc Garden, 
by the winter of 1837-8 ; and D. ovsLta w&s not injured at all, and may be 
considered as an evei^reen shrub, as hardy in the climate of London as Aris- 
toteUa Mdcqm,

that D. latifdlia ts a totally distinct species ( for

different, but we find it maintain all lis peculiarities 
unchanged when raised from seeds." ••'- d.«*. iuuul 

Olier Spedci of nm>a£a.—D. denlala Dec, Schlnus deatita Sol. Sep., was 
introduced in 1795, and is doubtless as hardy as anv of the above kmds ; since 
all of them are safest when planted against a wall, Ihtvaia iinii^ta Lindl. 
appears equally hardy with D, dep^ndens in the Hort. Soc, Garden. It differs 
linDm the others in producing the Bowers before the leaves, and in being deci- 
duous. All the ^>ecies well deserve culture as evergreen bushes, in shrubbvriea 
where the soil is dry and sandy, the situation sheltered, and the surface sloping 
to the south. A concurrence of circiuustances or this kind is not unlrequent 
in country residences, both in England and Scotland j and two examples which 
occur to us at the moment we ore writing are. Bury Hill in Surrey, and Blair 
Drummond in Stirlingshire. 



Ord, Char. Calyx with 5 divisions, either partitions, teeth, or clefts, the odd 
one anterior to the axis of inflorescence. Frvat a legume. Seed with the 
radicle next the hilum. (Lindl.) — Trees and shrubs natives of every climate. 
Leaves alternate, stipulate, generally compound ; deciduous, or sometimes 
evergreen ; petiole tumid at the base. SHpuIcM 2 at the base of the petiole, 
and 2 at the base of each leaflet. Pedicels usually articulated, with 2 bract- 
lets under the flower. 

The name of LesuminsLcese is applied to this extensive and truly natural 
order, on account of the seeds of all the species beine produced in leguminous 
pods, bearing more or less resemblance to those of the common pea or bean ; 
and quite different from the siliquose pods of cruciferous plants. 

The ligneous species are trees and shrubs, for the most part deciduous ; and 
they are disposed through almost every part of the world. The order contains 
some of our finest ornamental shrubs and low trees, such as Robfnto, C^tisus, 
Wistaria, Genista, (Tlex, Am6rpha, Halimod^ndron, ^cikcia, Oledftschta, 
Cercis, and various others. It also contains some considerable trees, which 
belong to the genera Roblnta, Oledltschia, Sophora, &c. The senera con- 
taining hardv ligneous plants are in number twenty-three, which, after De 
Candolle and G. Don, we place in characterised sections, and ascribe to them 
short characters, that are more or less contradistinctive.

T S. j. 3 phutula Hort., and the plate of this tree in our Ist edit,

Grafted near the ground, the shoots run alon^ the surface, like those 
of a trailing plant, to a very great distance from the main stem ; in 
^ood soil, a ahoot extending itself 6 or t4 feet in one aeason. 
Grafted at the height of lOor £0 feet or upwards, the shoots hang 
down, and form one of the most ornamental of pendulous trees, 
both in eummer and winter. 

I. a«tM>vMi>. 

A round-headed tree, readily distinguished in winter by (he fine, smooth, 
dark green bark of its young wood ana smaller branches ; and, in summer, by 
the curk blue green of its foliage. In deep free soil, it grows with great ra- 
pidity, seedlings attuning the height of 10 or 18 feet in 4or5yearsj and 
m 20 or 30 years, in the neighbourhood of London, 30 or 40 feet. There are 
large specimens in England, which flower freely; but they have never jet 
ripened seeds : indeed, the tree ripens seeds m Prance only in the ytry 
warmest seasons. The wood is very hard and compact, as much so, it is said, 
as thut of the box. The bark exhales a strong odour, which, it is stated in 
the Komxau Du Hamel, produces colic and puiging on those who prune the 


tree, or otfacrwue work with the wood in a green state. Little appean to 
be luiown of the uses of the tree in China and Japan : but it is said that the 
fruit is employed to dye a fine jellow ; and the flowers for dyeing a yellow of 
CO superior a bue, that it is exclusively reserved for dyong stuffi to be worn 
by the members of the imperial family. None of the arboreous LeguoiinaceK 
are equal to this tree in beauty of foliage and bark. Its flowers, when tbey 
are produced, are also in large terminal compound sptkea, and very con- 
^icuoua, though much smaller than those of the Roblnia viscdsa. One re- 
markable property in the foliage of the sophora is, that the very hottest Mid 
driest seMons do not turn it p^e, or cause it to drop off, as heat does that of 
most of die other pinnated-leaved Leguminacete. The pendulous varie^ is 
well deserving of culture as an object pf singulariw and beauty; and, where 
it is demred to cover a aurbce with intense green foliage during summer, for 
example, a dry hillock, a plant of this variety, placed on the centre, will ac- 
compu^ the purpose effectually. The tree will thrive in any free soil ; but, 
in cold climates, it ought to be placed in one rather poor and dry Lot it may 
be compelled to make shorter snoots ; which, of course, being lein succulent, 
are more easily ripened. It b generally propagated by seeds imported flvm 
Prance ; but, where it is desired to have trees that will toon come into flower, 
seedling plants should be grafted with sdons IVom a flowering tree. It will 
grow by cuttings, more especially of the roots, and also by layers.

A very distinct sort, though, 
from the very dilFerent and more 
luxuriant h^it which the plant 
has when cultivated in gardens 
on rich soils, we have no doubt of 
its b«ng only a variety of U. eu- 
rops'a. In its native habitats, it 
is eanly distinguished from that 
species by its low growth, seldom 
exceeding 8 ft. in height j by its 
being much smaller in all its parts; 
by its decumbent habit ; and by its 
flowering from the end of August 
till the beginning of December, "'' "■i*-''*"- 

and seldom at any other season. Very neat low hedges and edgings may be 
formed of it.

Discovered in the Marquess of Londonderry's Park, in the county of 



Down, in 1815, or before. It is very upright in its growth, and attains the 
height, in good soils, of from 6 ft. to 10 h, in as many years. Its branches 
are so soft and succulent that sheep and cattle eat them without injuring their 
mouths, and are very fond of them. It forms excellent garden hedges, and, 
in rather moist climates, is a most excellent forage plant, as has been already 
stated under U. europae^. It only rarely flowers, and has very seldom pro- 
duced seeds ; but it is easily propagated by cuttings.

Portugal in sandy pine woods ; and diflerin^ from CTlex nlina chiefly in the 
spines branching into two small ones at the sides. It was introduced in 1823 ; 
and grows to the height of 1 ft. to 2 ft. It is rather tender in the climate of 
London, but sometimes stands the winter among rockwork.

The hardy species are deciduous or sub-evergreen shrubs, generally with 
trifoUolste leaves and yellow flowers ; there is a great sameness of character 
among them, and, though many are quite distinct, yet it ia highly probable that 
the greater number now recorded as species are only vanetics. They are 
chiefly natives of Europe ; but a few are found in the liorth of Africa. As 
they grow rapidly, and flower &eely, especially on soils not wet at bottom, 
they are desir^te plants for oewiv foroied slirubberies, but In general they 
are not of long duration. A number of the spedes were formerly mcluded 
under the genus AArtium and gome under Cytisus, from which they have 
been separated by Lamarck, whose arrangement, as modified by DeCandolle, 
we have adopted in the following enumeration.

No shrub is more ornamental on rockwork; and, when, 
trained to a stake and allowed to form a head, or grafted 
standard hi^h on a laburnum, it forms a singular object, 
and, when in flower, a most magnificent one. It is also an 
admirable plant for training against a wall, particularly in 
dry situations, where it is exposed to the sun.

All the species have trifoliolate leaves, and the flowers are for the most part 
yellow. The shrubs have the habit of Cenlata or of S^rtium, to both which 
geners thev are nearly allied. They are all ornamental, some of them eminently 
so i and those which have their flowers in terminal racemes are decidedly more 
degant than those which have them in close termbal, or in axillary heads. 
The wood of the laburnum is valuable in turnery and cabinet-work. All the 
spedes produce seeds in abundance, by which they are almost exclusively 
propagated. The spedes recorded in books are numerous i but, if they were 
all brought together, and cultivated in the same garden, we queetioii mudi if 
a tithe of them would be found specifically distinct.

A very handsome shrub, more especially when covered 
with its white flowers in May, and when surrounded by 
hundreJi of bees, butily occupied in extracting the bonn'. I 
In good soil, it is of very rapid growth, attaining the h^^t 
or5 or 6 feet in 3 or 4 years; and, in 6 or Byean, growing 
as high as 15 or even SO feet, if in a sheltered situation. 
Placed by itself on a lawn, it forms a singularly omamentBl 
plant, even when not in Sower, by ihe varied dispositii 
and tufUn^ of its twiggy thr^-like branchet. When 
flower, it is one of the finest omaniaita of the garden. 
Trwned to a single stem, its effect is increased ; and, graf ' ' 
on the laburnum, a common practice about Paris, it foi 
a very remarkable comhination of beauty and singularity. ' 
Plants are easily raised from seeds.

Laburnum, is not a hybrid between C. Zfabdnium and C. purpiLreus, 
as was at Eirxt supposed, but a xport from a bud of CytisuB pur- 
pilreus ioaertcd in (,'. atplnus, in 1S25, by D. Adam, a nurseryman at 
Vitrj, near Paris. The flowers are of a reddish purple, slightly 
tingrd with bu^ and are produced in pendent spikes, H \a. or more 
long. A lew years after this sport was originated, it was found that 
it had ■ strong tendency to return to the original kinds ; and that 
Grom one bud or graft, branches were produced of the true CJtisus 
purpureus, of the true XabCimum (either the Alpine or the common. 


according to which of these may have been chosen as the stock) with 
yellow flowers, and of the purple laburnum. This was soon observed 
both in France and England. (See Gard, Mag,, vol. xii. p. 225., 
ToL XV. p. 122.; and Arb. Brit., 1st edit., p. 590.) It is a veiy vi- 
gorous, and somewhat erect and fastigiate, growing variety, having 
Eroduced shoots from 6 ft. to 9 ft. long in one season ; but, though it 
as been highly spoken of by some cultivators, in point of beauty, it 
cannot be recommended.

Miller recognised C. Zrabumum and C, alplnus as species; but Linnasus 
did not. Whether they are species or varieties, they are certainly very dis- 
tinct ; as much so, perhaps, as the (^u^us i26bur pedunculatum, and Q. R, 
sessiliflorum, and like these two oaks they come true from seed. Both sorts, 
being highly ornamental, have been extensively propagated and cultivated in 
British gardens and plantations. There are trees at Syon of C. alplnus above 
40 ft. highj and some at Alnwick Castle with trunks 3 ft. in diameter. The 
heart-wood of the laburnum is of a dark colour; and, though of rather a 
coarse j;rain, it is very hard and durable : it will take a polish, and may be 
made to resemble ebony. A cubic foot weighs 52 lb. 1 1 oz. in a dried state. 
The colour and grain of the heart^wood vary much, according to the soil, and 
the age of the tree. It is darkest in the C Zabiirnum, when grown on poor 
calcareous soil ; and lightest in the C (Xr.) alplnus, when erown in deep rich 
soil : in which last case its colour is a sort of J^reenish black. It is in much 
demand among turners and cabinet-makers. The ordinary use of the wood in 
the North of Scotland, is to form alternate staves with the wood of the holly, 
or the spindle tree, in making small noggins, or bickers ; but it is also used 
for the bowls of punch-ladles ; for flutes, and other musical instruments. 
Hares and rabbits being remarkably fond of the bark of the laburnum, it has 
been suggested to sow labumum seeds, in order to produce an undergrowth in 
plantations liable to be infested with these animals; for, though the plants are 
eaten to the ground every winter, vet they will spring up again the next season, 
and thus yield a regular supply of winters food for these kinds of game. As 
an ornamental tree, the labumum has few rivals. The shape of uie head is 
irregular and picturesque ; its foliage is of a smooth, shining, and beautiful 
green ; and, wnat is a great recommendation to every ornamental plant, it is 
not liable to be preyed on by insects. Though the laburnum will grow in a 
very indifferent soil, it requires a deep fertile sandy loam to attain a urge size. 
In regard to situation, as the tree puts out few horizontal roots, and has rather 
a spreading head, when it grows rapidly it is apt to be blown aside by hi^h 
winds ; but, for the same reason, it is less injurious to plants srowing near it, 
than some other ornamental trees. For producing timber, it should be placed 
in masses in a sheltered situation, or in a plantation among other trees, so as 
to be drawn up with a clear straight stem ; and when so circumstanced, in 
good soil, C. (Zr.) alpinus will grow to the height of from 35 ft. to 45 ft. Bk>th 
C. Xabumum and C, (L.^ alpinus are invariably raised from seed, and the 
pendulous and other varieties are propagated by grafting or budding on either 
of the common sorts. The seeds are & to gather in October ; and they may 
be kept in the pod, in a dry airy lof^ till the March following, when they 
should be sown in beds of light poll, at about an inch apart every way, and 
covered about half an inch or three quarters of an inch thick. Half the plants 
vhich come up will be fit for transplanting into nursery lines in the November

A C. s. 2 6Ibut Hort has the flowers white, or of a very pale yellow* 
A C. s. SJiorepleno Hort. has flowers slightly double. 

The roots are straight, and penetrate perpendicularly to a great depth. The 
leaves are trifoliolate or simple ; the branches numerous, long, straight, angular, 
dark green, smooth, and tough. The flowers are of a deep golden yellow, 
sometimes • tinged with orange, and occasionall v of a uniform pale lemon 
colour : they are succeeded by pods above an inch long, 
black when ripe, and each containing 15 or 16 seeds. 
The flowers are larger than those of any other species 
of the genus ; and, were the plant not so common in 
a wild state, it would, doubtless, be considered the 
most ornamental. The whole plant is exceedingly tough, 
and bitter to the taste, and nas a strong disagreeable 
smell. Though it is at present comparatively neglected, 
yet in former times it was one of venr great importance 
m rural and domestic economy. The branches are eaten 
by sheep and cattle ; and, on poor gravelly soils, formed, 
"before the eeneral improvement of grass lands which 
has taken place within the last century, the principal 
herba^. One of the principal modern uses of the broom, 
both m Britain and on the Continent, is to form 
brooms, or besoms; for which purpose, as the specific 
name would imply, it appears to have been useci from 
time immemorial. The young shoots were formerly 
used as a substitute for hops in brewing beer ; and the 
flower-buds, just before they become yellow, were pickled 
in the manner of capers. The tops and leaves are purgative and diuretic. 
In the North of Scotland, a decoction of the recent snoots is used by shep- 
herds, for dressing the backs of sheep, instead of tobacco wat^. The broom 
produces abundance of seeds, whicn, according to M. Hartig, retain their 
germinating quality for a very long time : some that he kept 25 years, in a 
room which was occupied, having come up as readily as new seed.

Other Spedei of C^ai. — This genus, in British gardens, is in such a stateof 
confiuion, that nothing can be done in it satisfactorily till all the kinds are 
collected together, and cultivated for two or three years till they show their 
flowem and fruit. Perhaps two thirds of the alleged species in the London 
gardens are only varietiea. In the mean time, all that a cultivator can do is to 

Krocure as many kinds as he can ; and in the collection of Messrs. Loddiges 
e will find the greater number of those above described, though some of them 
have been killed by the winter of 1837-8. Among the species probably hardy, 
by lar the handsomest in point of foliage ia the C. aSlicut Ouss. (Bot. Reg.

the first edition of this Arboretum. Many genera of ligneous plants require to 
be cultivated t(»ether, in the same garden, in order to settle their nomen- 
ckture: hut whUe some of these, as Qu^rcus, /"Inus, &c., would consume the 
greater part of a lifetime in procuring them from the diSbrent quarters of the 
world, and wdting ull they came into flower, the genera Genista, Cytisus, 
and Adeiioc&rpus are almost exclusively European, SaA might be collected in 
tbc course of one year \ while, in three years after the seeds were sown, the 
plants would in most cases come into flower. It is surprising, therefore, that 
soroe amateur of lebure does not undertake their arrangement.

A most beautiful species when in flower ; but, when out of flower, of a gloomy 
ashy hue. The trunk is disfigured by the old ragged bark, whence the 
vernacular name. It is truly astonishing, Mr. Webb observes, that this splendid 
European plant, of almost arboreous stature, with spikes of flowers sometimes 
a foot in length, should so long have escaped detection. It closely resembles 
A. hispinicus, but, according to Mr. Webb, it is " very entirely distinct.** Plants 
are, or soon will be, in the Milford Nursery.

LoDicer*s HMorjf qf Plantt, His son Vespasian was sub-demonstrator at the Jardln dos Plantes 
in Pturli, and was the first person who cultirated the Robfni^i Pseud*ilduda in Europe. 

Gen, Char, Calyx 5-toothed, lanceolate^ 2 upper ones shorter and approxi- 
mate. CoroUa papilionaceous. FexUiian large. Keel obtuse. Stamens dia- 
delphous, deciduous. Ovaries 16— 20-ovumte. SUy/e bearded in front. 
Legume compressed, almost sessile, many-seeded, with the valves thin and 
flat, margined at the seminiferous suture. (Don*s MUL) 

Leaves compound, unequally pinnate, alternate, deciduous ; leaflets 
generally ovate or obovate, petiolate. Flowers white or rose-coloured, in 
axillary usually nodding racemes. — Trees, deciduous, natives of North Ame- 
rica, where one of the species is highly valued for its timber. 

The species are prized, partly for their use, but chiefly for their beauty. 
They are roulily propagated by seeds, large truncheons of the stem and 
branches, cuttings of the roots, or by grafting ; and they will grow in any soil 
that is not too wet. Their roots are creeping, and their branches very bnttle : 
they grow rapidly, but are generally not of long duration. Their rapid ^wth 
is a property that they have in common with sdl trees and plants the principal 
roots o\ which extend themselves close under the surface ; because there the 
soil is always richest : but the same cause that produces this rapidity at first 
occasions the tree to grow slowly afterwards, unless the roots are allowed 
ample space on every side ; since, as they never penetrate deep, they soon 
exhaust all the soil within their reach. They are, therefore, nishly objec- 
tionable among ornamental shrubs, or in flower borders. For wis reason, 
also, such trees are objectionable as hedgerow trees, or as scattered groups in 
arable lands ; their roots proving a serious impediment to the plough, ana the 
suckers thrown up by them choking the com crops. Roots, on the other 
hand, which penetrate perpendicularly as well as horizontally, belong to more 
slowly, but more steadily, growing trees, which always attain a larger size in 
proportion to the extent of ground they occupy.

Derimattom, This tree, when first Introduced, was suppoeed to be a spedes of the Egyptian acada, 
(ilcieia rin), from its prickly branches and pinnatea leares, which resembled those of that tree. 
It was named the locust tree by the missionaries, who Canded that It was the tree that supported 
St. John In the wilderness. It Is not, howerer, a native of any other part of the world than North 
America. The name Caronge is the French word for earob bean, the locust tree of Spain ; which, 
being also a native of Syria, is, probably, the true locust of the New Testament, The German 
name of Schot e ndom is composed of aekote^ a pod, or legume, and dom, a thorn.

Varieties, The plant Tailing much in its diflferent native localities, and also 
having been long cultivated from seeds in Europe, the varieties are nume- 
rous. Some of those included in the following list appear in our Hortut 
BrUanmcutf and in Don's Miller, as species ; whue some h vbrids, such as R. 
h^brida and R. interm^ia, might also have been considered as varieties, 
but we have preferred keeping them apart.

R. indrmis Dum, Court, vi. p. 140. — Prickles wanting. Branches 
much crowded, and smooth. Head orbicular. Leaflets ovate. This 
variety u said to have been raised from the seed of R. Pseikd-ilcacia ; 
and, according to Dumont de Courset, to have yellow flowers. It 
has been common in British gardens since 1820, but has not yet 
flowered in this country. 

Y R,P.6 tortudia Dec. Prod. ii. p. 261. ; and the plate in Arb. Brit., 1st

lar to those of R. Pseud-ilc^ia, but smaller and fewer-flowered. 

It R,P,7 sophors/o&i Lodd. Cat. 1830 has the leaves large, and some- 
what like those of Sophora jap6nica. 

^ R. P.S anwrpheBfoUa Lk. has leaves somewhat like those of Am<5rpha 

¥ 22. P 9 stricta Lk. has the general tendency of the shoots upright ; 
but still the plant is not so fastigiate as the Lombardy poplar. 

* 12. P. 10 procera Lodd. Cat 1830. — A tall vigorous-growmg variety. 

t R, P, II pendula Ort. Dec. p. 26. — The shoots are somewhat droop- 
ing, but not very decidedly so. 

t R,P.l2 momirota Lodd. Cat. 1830. — The leaves are large, and twisted. 

S R. P, 13 macrophjflla Lodd. Cat. 1830 has the leaves long, and the 
leaflets broad. 

!i R. P, 14 microph^Ua Lodd. Cat. 1830, R. angustiiblia Hort,, has the 
leaves small, and the leaflets narrow. 

It R. P, \5 tpecMUis Dum. has large leaves and is without prickles : it 
produces straight vigorous shoots, which are angular wnen young. 
It was nused from seed by M. Descemet, at St. Denis, and was 
formerly known in the French nurseries by the name of Acacia 
aga9ante (enticing). 

H R, P. 16 latisiliqua, the broad-podded locust, is mentioned m Prince's 
Catalogue for 1829. 

Most of these varieties are tolerably distinct in the foliage when the plants 
are young. Those best worth cultivating, for the shape of the tree, are R. 
P. umbracullfera, the parasol acacia ; K. P. pendula ; R. P. stricta, the 
upright-growing sort ; and R. P. spect&bilis. With regard to the yellow- 
flowered variety, it maj be worth continuing by grafting or suckers ; but, to 
make quite sure of having white flowers, the trees producing them ought to be 
propagated by grafting also ; as plants raised from seed, though for the most 
part they have white flowers, yet occasionally produce yellowish ones. 

The wood, which is commonly of a greenish yellow colour, marked with 
brown veins, is hard, compact, and susceptible of a bright polish : it has a good 
deal of strength, and is very durable ; but it has not much elasticity, and is 
somewhat liable to crack. A cubic foot of locust wood, newly cut, weighs 
63 lb. 3 oz. ; haJf-dry, 56 lb. 4 oz. ; and, when quite drv, only 48 lb. 4 oz. Its 
value for fuel, when compared with that of the beech, is as 12 to 15. For 
duration Hartig places it immediately after the oak, before the larch and the 


Scotch [nnc According to Barlow, the strength of acacia tiinber, aa compared 
with fiae English oek, it as 1867 to I67g ; the strength of ash being ai 8086;

this species, and of several <»ri[s TarietieB,in the garifen of tfie Horticultural So- 
ciety, and in the arboretum of McsBri. Loddiges, have attained the height of 30 fl- 
and upwards, in 10 years from the lime they were planted. There is, perhapa, no 
Amencan tree respecting which so much has been said and done, in Europe, as 
the locusL It was one of the first trees that we received from America, and 
it has been more exteiMively propagated than any other, both in France and Eng- 
land. It has been alternately extolled and neglected m both countries ; and even 
at the present time, though the beauty of its foliage and flowers is gencrslly ac- 
knowledged, and though it ha.i, at different periods, been enthusiasticRlly praised 
br diSerent writers, for the valuable properties of its wood, it cannot be con- 
sidered as holding a high rank as a timber tree, or as brang worth planting with 
a vieir to profit. We pass over manv curious and historiral facts respecting the 
tocuM tree, for which we refer to toe Ist edit, of this work, and come to the 
year 16!3, when an extraordinary aensadoD was excited in Britain respecting 
this tree by Cobbett. This writer, white in America, from 1817 to 1819, ** was 
convinced that nothing in the timber way could be so great a benefit as the 
general cultivation of this tree." On his return to England he commenced 
nurseryman, and the name of locust, as applied to this tree, bdng, before 
Cobbett's time, almost forgotten m Enghind, man^ persons, in consequence, 
thought it was a new tree. Hence, while quantitiea of plants of Roblniii 
PseOd-^cacia stood unasked for in the nursoiea, the locust, which every one 
believed could only be had. genuine from Mr. Cobbett, could not be grown by 
hira in sufficient quantities to supply the demand. After creating a [m>digious 
■ensatioa for a few years, the locust mania entirely lubnded, and Uie tree is 
now, as it was before Cobbett's time, planted only, or chiedy, (br ornament.

M R.h. 2 nana Dec. is a plant hardly a foot high, found in pine woods 
in Carolina. 

A i?. A. 3 Tosea Pnrsh has the leaflets for the most part alternate, and 
the branches smoothish. In its native habitats, on the high mountains 
of Virginia and Carolina, it grows, according to Pursn, to a con- 
siderable shrub i whereas the species is a low straggling plant. 

M a, h, 4 macroph^Ua Dec., R. onindifldra Hort,, figured in Arb. Brit., 
Ist edit., Yol. ▼., has the leaflets laree, and ovate-roundish ; and the 
branches and peduncles glabrous, and without prickles. 

The species, and the different varieties, are shrubs or low trees, with tor* 
tuous and very brittle branches, and leaves and flowers nearly twice the size 
of those of Roblnia Pseikd-ildlcia. They form singularly ornamental shrubs 
for rardens ; but, as standards or bushes, they can be onlv pUmted with safety 
in the most sheltered situadons. When grafted standard high, and trained to 
a wire parasol-like frame, supported on a rod or post 6 or 8 feet high, few 
plants are equal to R. b, macrophyila in point of brilliant display.

recommended as a substitute for senna, and they are 
also said to afibrd a grateful food for cattle. The 
seeds, in doses of a drachm or two, are said to excite 
vomiting. In British gardens, the plant is chiefly 
valuable as a bulky fast-growing shrub, of the easiest 
culture, and fit for almost any situation.

The species are of easy culture in good firee soil ; and, in Britain, generally 
propagated by imported seeds, or grafting. The species appear to be in a 
state of great confusion in Bridsh g^irdens; and, judging from the trees in the 
Hort. Soc. Garden, and in the arboretum of Messrs. Loddiges, we should 
conjecture that there are, probably, not more than two species, the American 
and the Chinese. The Chinese species is distinguished by its trunk being 
more 8[)iny than its branches.

The trunk and branches, when the tree is youne, are covered with large 
prickles, which, though they are not ligneous, become nard, and remain on for 
several years, and offer a formidable defence. These prickles are not only 
produced by the young wood, but occasionally protrude themselves from the 
trunk, even when the tree is of considerable bulk and age. In general, the 
trunk presents a twisted appearance, and the branches proceed from it rather 
horizontally than in an upright direction. The pinnated foliage is particularly 
elegant, and of an agreeable light shining green : it appears late in spring, the 
trees in the neighbourhood of London sometimes not being fully cloth«l till 
the middle or end of June ; and it be^s to turn yellow, and drop off, early 
in autumn. The flowers are inconspicuous ; the male flowero being in the 
form of catkin-like racemes of nearly the same colour as the leaves. Some 
trees in the grounds at Syon have ripened seeds, the pods containing which, 
being 1 ft. to 2 fi. in length, and remaining on the trees after the leaves are off, 
have a singular appearance. These crooked pendulous pods are of a reddish

eubatance, wtuch, for about s month after the ■Dsturity of the e 
verj iweet, but after a few weeks becomea extremely sour. The mte or 
growth of this tree, for the fint 15 or 20 yean, ia generally about the BTerage 
of a foot a year ; but in fevourable situations it will grow at double that rate. 
In the garden of the Hort. Soc, and in the arboretum of the Heasrs. Lod- 
diies, plants 10 years planted were, in 1835, from 30ft. to 25tl. in height. 
The wood of this tree, when dry, weighs at the rate of 53 lb. the cubic foot : 
it is verv hard, and splits with great facility, resembling in this and other re- 
spects ttie wood of the robinia ( but its grain is coarser, and its pores more 
open, bi Britain, this, and all the kinds of the genus, can only be considered 
as omamental trees ; but in that character they hold the first mnk ; then- de- 
licate acada-Uke foliage, and the uugularly varied, graceful, aud picturesque

Eether with the singular feature afforded by its spines, will always recommend 

to ripen the seeds. The spedea is always propagated by seeds imported Irom 
America, or from Fnmcc or Italy. The plants are best tninsplanted to where 
they are finally to remain when quite young ; as they make but few fibrous 
roots, and these take, for the most part, a d^cending direction. The variety 
G. t. inermis can only be insured by grafting on the species. In general, how- 
ever, abundance of plants without apinea may be selected from beds of seed- 
lings of Q. triacjinthos.

which it is, probably, only a variety. It is very hardy ; and Desfontaines says 
that it fruits freely m France. The fruit ripens in the autumn ; and the pods 
are long, pendulous, swelled, and rather cylindrical. They are filled with a 
sharp acria pulp, somewhat resembling that of tamarinds, but the emanations

OtJier SorU ofGledUtckm,^'Eyery modification of the species of this genus 
is so interesting, both in point of the elegance of its foliage, and the singularity 
of its prickles, that new varieties have been eagerly sought after by cultivators ; 
and the genus seems particularly favourable to this desire, from the tendency 
of seedling plants to sport. Hence there are several names in collections, of 

417. G.cAtplca. 


which it is difficult to say any tiling satisfactory in the present young and im- 
mature state of the plants. In the Hort. Soc. Garden, there were in 1837 
G. nacracdniha^ G, Boqui, and G, prw^cox ; and in Messrs. Loddiges's arbo- 
retum were plants marked G, aquatica^ which are evidently the same as G. 
monosperma, G, orientdUs, evidently G. firox, G, ckinStuU (ahready mentioned) ; 
and some young plants without names.

in 1748. rlowers white; May to July. Decaying leaves yellow. Naked 
young wood of a mealy white, without any appearance of buds. 

The branches have almost always an upright direction ; and the appearance 
of the head, in the winter season, is remarKable, from being fastigiate, and from 
the points of the branches being few, and thick and blunt, as compared with 
those of almost every other tree. They are also wholly without the ap- 
pearance of buds ; and this latter circumstance, connected with the former, 
gives the tree, during winter, the appearance of being dead ; and hence the 
Canadian name of chicot, or stump tree. The leaves, on young thriving trees, 
are 3ft. long, and 20 in. wide; but, on trees nearly full grown, they are not 
half that size. The leaflets are of a dull bluish green, and the branches of 
the petioles are somewhat of a violet colour. It is very hardy, and flowers 
freely in the neighbourhood of London, but does not produce pods. The 
wood is hard, compact, strong, tough, and of a fine rose colour. In America, 
it is used both in cabinet-making and carpentry, and, like the wood of the 
robinia, it has the remarkable property of rapidlv converting its sap-wood into 
heart-wood ; so that a trunk 6 in. in diameter has not more than six lines of 
sap-wood, and may, consequently, be almost entirely employed for useful pur- 
poses. The seeds were, at one time, roasted and ground as a substitute for 
coflee in Kentucky and Tennessee; but their use in this way has been lone 
since discontinued. The pods, preserved like those of the tamarind (to which 


this genua w aearif allied), are laid to be wholeaome, aud ili^tly aperienl. 
In Britain, the onlj use of the tree ii for oraunental purposes ; and, con- 
sidered as an object of curiositj and beauty, no collection ought to be wiihout 
it. A rich, deep, free soil is essential to the thrivii^ of this tree ; and such a 
soil is never met with naturally in exposed situations. The tree is generally 
propagated by imported seeds; but it will grow freely from cuttings of the 
roots, care bei:^ taken in planting to keep that end upwards which is na- 
turelly ao.

Hie common Judas tree, in the South of Burope, forms a handsome low 
tree, with a Bat spreading head, in the form of a parasol; and it is a singularly 


beautiful object in spring, especially wben it in eorered with its numerous bright 
purplish pink flowers, which appear before the leaves, and are produced not 
only rrom the foung wood, but Irom wood of 6 or S years growth, and even 
from the trunk. Tne leaves are not liable to be attacked by insects. The 
flowers are succeeded by flat, thin, brown pods, nearly 6 in. in length, whid 
remain on the tree all the year, and give it a very singular iippearance in the 
winter season. The rate of growth is about IB iu. a year, for the first lOyeara. 
The wood is very hard, and agreeably veined, or rather blotched or waved, 
with bkick, green, and yellow spots, on a grey ground. It takes a beautiful 
polish, and wd^hs nearly 48 lb. to the cubic Foot. The flowers, which have 
an agreeable acid taste, are mixed with salads, or fried with batter, as fritters ; 
and the flower-buds are pickled in vin^ar. In British gardens, the tree grows 
about the same height, and flowers about the same time, as the laburnum, the 
Guelder rose, and tbe hawthorn, and enters into beautiful combination with 
these and other trce^ The foliage is hardly leu beautiful and remarkable than 
the flowers ; the leaves being of a pale bluish green on the upper surface ; and 
of a sea-green underneath, and of a cordate reniform shape, apparently cod- 
siating of two leaflets joined together; which circumstance, combined with 
others, brin^ the genus in close ^tiance with that of Bauhiniii. Like most of 
the Legumm&cete, this tree prefers a deep, free, sandy soil, rich rather than 
poor; and it will only thrive, and become a handsome tree, in sheltered utua- 
tions. Tn tbe northern parts of the island, it requires to be planted against a 
wall; and few ornamental trees better deserve such a situation. The speoes 
is propagated by seeds, and the varieties by grafting. The seeds are sown on 
heat early in spring, and come up the same season -, and the plants will produce 
flowers in three or four years.

The term Roskcea has been applied to this order, because all the species 
belonging to it agree more or less with the genus Rdsa, in essential cnarac- 
ters. It includes many genera belonging to the Linnaean class Icosindria. 

Ord. Char. Flowers regular. Co/^jr, in most cases, with 5 lobes, the odd one 
posterior to the axis of inflorescence. Petalt and ttamens arising from the 
calyx. Stamens, for the most part, numerous. Ovaries many, several, or 
solitary ; each of one ceU that includes, in most cases, 1 ovule ; in some, 
1 to many ovules. Style lateral or terminal. 

Leaves sunple, or pinnately divided, alternate, in nearly all stipulate. 
Flowers showy, with numerous stamens. Frtdt^ in many of the genera, edible. 
— Trees and shrubs, mostly deciduous; natives of Europe, Asia, and America. 

The ligneous species which constitute this order include the finest flower- 
ing shrub in the world, the rose; and the trees which produce the most 
useful and agreeable fruits of temperate climates, viz. the apple, the pear, the 
plum, the cherry, the apricot, the peach, and the nectarine. The plants are, 
for the most part, decicmous low trees or shrubs, all producing flowers more 
or less showy ; and the greater number fruits which are edible. They are 
chiefly natives of Europe and Ana ; but several of them are also found in 
North America, and some in South America, and the North of Africa. The 
fruit-bearing species, and the rose, have followed man from the earliest period 
of civilisation, and are, perhaps, better known to mankind in general than any 
other ligneous plants. The medical properties of several of the species are 
remarkable, from the circumstance of tneir yielding the prussic acid ; while 
others produce a gum nearly allied to the gum Arabic, which indicates a 
degree of affinity between this order and Legumin^cesc. The bark of some 
species, as of C^rasus viiviniina, is used, in North America, as a febrifuge ; 
and that of others, as uie capoUm cherry (C^rasus CapoUin), for tanning, 
in Mexico. The leaves of Cratae'gus Oxyacdntha, Prunus spindsa, Cerasus 
sylv^tris, and R^ba rubigindsa, have been used as a substitute for tea, or for 
adulterating tea. The leaves and bark of the spirseas are said to be at once 
astringent and emetic. There are two characteristics of this order, with 
reference to its cultivation, which are of great importance to the gardener : 
the first is, the liability of almost all the species to sport, and produce 
varieties diflering, in many cases, more from one another, than they differ 
firom other species ; and the second is, that they are remarkably subject to 

s 2 


the attacks of insects and diseases. They almost ail require a/ree loamy soil, 
not overcharged with moisture, and rich rather than poor ; and, while ail the 
species are increased by seeds, which, for the most part, are produced freely in 
Britain, or by cuttings of the roots, almost all the varieties are best increased 
by grufHuff or budding ; and not, as in some other orders, with equal ease by 
cuttings of the shoots, or by layers. 

With reference to landscape-gardening, all the rosaceous trees have three 
properties which deserve to be kept constantly in view by the improver of 
grounds : 1st, they never attain a lai^ size ; 2d, they attain their natural size 
and shape in a very few years, in good soil not requiring more than from 
10 to 20 years; and 3il, they sooner take the character of old trees than the 
trees of any other natural order of ligneous plants. A few exceptions may be 
taken from different orders, such as the common fieki maple, the common 
laburnum, &c. ; but we know of no natural order, in which, hke the RoekceaR, 
all the trees are low or middle-sized, and all take the character of age while 
comparatively young. Hence their value in laying out small places, where 
the object is to make a new place appear old, or a small place appear larger 
and at the same time to combine character of form with beautiful blossoms 
in spring, and showy (Cratse^gus, Cotonc&ster, and Ameldnchier) ov useful 
(Pyrus and /^nus) fruit in autumn. 

The genera are included by DeCandolle and G. Don in five tribes ; and the

Leaves simple, conduplicate when young, alternate, stipulate, deciduous.

The fruit-bearing species are cultivated in the Bliddle and South of Europe 
and the Levant, and are propa^ted chiefly by grafting ; and the others by 
Rafting, layers, suckers, or cuttmgs of the root. The almond was included 
by Linnsus in the si^me genus with the peach and nectarine, of both of which 
it is, doubtless, the parent, as trees have been found with almonds in a 
state of transition to peaches, and with both peaches and nectarines on the 
same branch.

All the different forms of the dwarf almond are low shrubs, seldom exceedincr 
2 or 3 feet in height. The leaves bear a general resemblance to those of some 



of the species of willow, but are of i 
darker and more shining green, at le>u 
in the original species. The stems an 
not of long duration; but the plant J 
throws upabundance of tmvdiing suck- 
ers, by which it is continued naturally, 
and also propagated. It is comtnoil 
tbrou^ all the plains of Russia, from ( 
56° N. lat. to the south of the empire. < 
. la British gardeDs it is valuable on 
J account of Its early flowering, the grace- 
fulness of the slender twigs, on which 
its flowers are produced before the 
leaves appear, and of its easy culture in ^^ 

in. A.^xt. any dry soil. Its fruit resembles that of ,a. .i.oua. 

jf. communis, butismuch smaller, and 
rarely seen in England. The plant, which is usuallj called the dwarf double- 
blossomed almond in British gardens, is Cfrasus janomcs fidre pKno, or, u it 
is fl^uently named in the nurseries, jlm^gdalus pOmila.

forms of the bitter almond ; one with a hard shell, and the other 
with a brittle one. The tree is cultivated in the South of France, 
in Austria, in Italy, in Ureece, &c., for its fruit, which is preferred 
for some purposes in medicine and in domestic economy to that of 
the sweet almond, particularly for givinz a flavour ; and for stocks 
for grafting the other varieties on, and the peach, apricot, and even 
the plum. Bitter almonds arc ^crally mixed with sweet ones, in 
very small proportions, for making blancmange, &c.

Other VarieAa. The almond, considered as a fruit tree, hainven rise to 
some other varieties, which will be found treated of at length in I^ncb works 
on gardening, in tbe Koimeait Du Hamet, and the Notmeau Court ^Agriculture. 
There are severa] varieties of the almond in cultivation on the Continent 
for their fruit ; and two or three in this country, partly for the same purpose, 
but chiefly fur their flowers. The common almond, in a wild state, is found 
sometimes with the kernels bitter, and at other times with them sweet ; in 
the same manner as the Qu6rcus bispinica, which, in Spain, though it gene- 
rally bears sweet and edible scorns, yet sometimes produces only such as are 
tutter. For this reason, in the case of the almond, instead of giving one form 
as the spedes, we have followed DeCandolle, and described both the bitter 
and the sweet almond separately, either of which may be considered as the 
species, and classed them with tbe varieties.

The different varieties of peach and nectarine, when treated as standard 
trees in the open garden, assume the ^neral form and character of the 
almond ; but, as they are more delicate, in consequence of being farther re- 
moved from their aboriginal state, they are of slower growth, form trees of less 
size, and are of shorter duration. The nectarine, as a standard in the open 
garden, forms a smaller and more delicate tree than the peach ; and the double- 
flowered peach is of less vigorous growth than most of the single-flowered 
varieties, but very ornamental.

The common apricot is a fruit tree in general cultivation throughout the 
temperate regions of the globe, distinguished at first si^ht from the almond, 
peach, and nectarine, by its heart-shaped, smooth, shinine leaves, and white 
flowers. There are several wild varieties, bearing flowers of different shades of 
pink, chiefly cultivated as ornamental. The great beauty of both the wild and 
the cultivated sorts of apricot is, that they come into bloom in Britain before 
almost every other tree ; the Siberian apricot flowering a fortnight, or more, 
before the common sloe or almond.

This tree, on the mountains of Dahuria, does not attain a greater height 
than that of a man ; but it has a trunk the thickness of the wrist, a rough and 
black bark, and hard wood. It flowers about the same time as the Rhodo- 
dendron dauricum ; growing on the south sides of the mountains, while the 
latter grows on the north sides. When both these plants are in flower, 
Pallas observes, the north sides of the mountains appear of a purple colour, 
and the south of a rose colour. (^FL Rots,, i. p. 13.) In British gardens, the 
Siberian apricot forms a tree of nearly the same height as the common apricot, 
of which it appears to us to be the wild form.

Many of the species are spiny in a wild state ; most of them bear edible 
fruits ; and all of them have showy blossoms. In British gardens, they are 
chiefly propagated by grafting, but some of them by layers ; and they will grow 
in any soU that is tolerably tree, and not overcharged with moisture, but a cal- 
careous soil is found best. The epidermis of the bark of the plum, as well as 
that of the cherry, and perhaps that of some of the other genera of ifmy^d^es, 
is readily divisible transversely, and may frequently be seen divided m this 
manner mto rings on the tree.

Y P. s. djiore pletio. — This is a very beautiful variety, said to be in cul-

some years ago at Tarascon. The flowers are white, and are pro- 
duced in such abundance as to entirely cover the branches. 

The sloe, or blackthorn, is much more frequentlv seen as a large spiny shrub, 
than as a tree; but, when the suckers are removed from it, and all the strength 
of the plant is allowed to go into one stem, it forms a small scrubby tree of die 
most characteristic kind. The stems of the sloe differ from those of the haw- 
thorn, in growing to the hei^t of 3 or 4 feet before they branch off. The 
bark is blw^k, whence the name of blackthorn ; and the leaves are dark green. 
The roots are creeping, and, in every soil and situation, throw up numerous 
suckers ; so much so, that a single plant, in a favourable soil, would cover an 
acre of ground in a very few years. In hedges, in Britain, it is seldom seen 
above 20 ft. in height ; but in woods and in parks, as single trees, we have seen 
it above 30 ft. high : for example, in Eastwell Park, in Kent. The wood is 
hard, and in colour resembles tnat of the peach, thouch without its beauty : it 
takes a fine polish ; but it is so apt to crack, that little use can be made of it, 
except for handles for tools, teeth for hay-rakes, swindles for flails, and 
walkmg-sticks. The wood weighs, when dry, nearW 52 lb. per cubic foot. 
The branches, from being less spreading than those of the common hawthorn, 
make better dead hedges than those of that species ; and, for the same reason, 
they are particularly well adapted for formmg gaards to the stems of trees 



437t PktBoi splntea* 

planted in grass fields or in parks, to protect them from cattle. They are in 
general use for this purpose in France. They are also used as a substitute for 
stones and tiles in draining ; and, formed into faggots, they are sold for heating 
bakers' ovens, and for burning lime or chalk in kilns, &c. The living plant 
cannot be recommended for hedges, on account of the rambling habit of its 
roots, and the numerous suckers they throw i:^ ; and because it is apt to get 
naked below, from the tendency of the shoots to grow upright and without 
branches. These upright shoots make excellent walking-sticks, which, ac- 
cordingly, throughout Europe, are more frequently taken from this tree than 
from any other. Leaves of the sloe, dried, are considered to form the best 
substitute for Chinese tea which has yet been tried in Europe ; and they have 
been extensively used for the adulteration of that article. The juice of the 
ripe fruit is said to enter lamly into the manufacture of the cheaper kinds of 
port wine ; and, when property fermented, it makes a wine strongly resembling 
new port. In planting groups and masses in parks, by the addition of a few 
plants of the sloe, a degree of intricacy may be given sooner and more ef- 
fectively, than by the use of the common thorn ; but, at the same time, the sloe 
produces a degree of wildness from its numerous suckers, and the want of 
control which they indicate, which is not displayed by any of the species of 
Cratce^s, which do not throw up suckers, r or producing wildness and in- 
tricacy, therefore, in park scenery, the sloe is of great value, and its effect is 
much heightened by the addition of the common furze or the broom. The 
sloe prefers a strong calcareous loam. It may be propagated freely by suckers, 
or by seeds : the latter should be gathered in October, when the fruit is dead 
ripe, mixed with sand, and turned over two or three times in the course of the 
wmter ; and, being sown in February, they will come up in the month of May.

The fruit of this plum in Provence is called prune sibarelle, because it is im- 
possible to whistle after having eaten it, from its sourness. The wood, the

The cultivated plum resembles the common sloe, but is

that have some pretensions to distinctness in an ornamental point of view.

use of the fruit in domestic economy, in Britain, for the dessert, and for 
making tarts and puddings, is well known. In France, plums are used prin- 
cipally dried, as an article of commerce, and they are known under the name 
otbngnoles, prunes, and French plums. The ifltrent modes of preserving

There is much confusion in all the species, more particularly as regards

A. Species cuitivated Jbr their Frtdt. 

The Cherries cuUioaied in Gardens, according to Linnsus, and almost all 
botanisrs to the time of DeCandolle, have been referred to Piriknus Mum L. 
and Priknus Ci^rasus L. ; the former being the merisier of the French, and 
corresponding with the small wild black bitter cherry of the English (the C. 
sylv^tris of Ray) ; and the latter the cerisier of the French, and correspond- 
ing with the common red sour cherry of the English (the C, vulgaris of Mil- 
ler). To these two species DeCandolle has added two others : Cerasus 
Julian^z, which he considers as including the guigniers ; and Cerasus dur&cina, 
under which he includes the bigarreaus, or hard cherries. Under each of 
these four species, Seringe,- in DeCandoUe*8 Prodromus, has arranged a num- 
ber of varieties, with definitions to each group : but, as neither the species 
nor the groups appear to us distinct, we have adopted the arrangement of the 
author of the article on Cerasus in the Nouveau DuHamel, as much more 
simple and satisfactory ; and have referred all tlie cultivated varieties to the 
same species as Linnasus ; substituting for PTunus ^vium L,, Cerasus sylvestris, 
the synon. of Ray ; and for Pri^nus Cerasus Xr., Cerasus vulsaris, already used 
to designate the same species in Miil, Diet,, and by Loiseleur m the Nouveau Du 
Hameh The arrangement of the varieties, and general culture of the cherry in 
the kitchen-garden and orchard, will be found at length in our Encydopisdta of 
Gardening ; and, in a more condensed form, in our Suburban Horticulturist,

of the«e the four following varietieB, which wc particulurise on accoimt of 
their bdng purely ornamentil : — 

I C. r. e Jiore lenriplrno Hort. — Flowers semidouble. 
1 C. r. 3 Jldre pl^ Hort, — All the stamens of this vmriety are changed 
iota petals ; sod the pUultutn into bii>hU green leaves, which occupy 
the centre of the flower. The flower is smaller and less besutiAu 
than that of the double m^risier; but, at t5e tree does not grow so 
high, and as it can be grown as a shrub, it is suitable for planting in 
situations where the other Cftnnot be introduced. It is commonly 
grafted on the iYi^nus Mahaleb. 
f C. r. 4 ^erntifldra Hort. — The flowers are douUe, and rose-coloured. 
This vttiiety wu known to Bauhin and to Toumefort, but is at pre- 
sent rare in gardens. 
I C. ih 5 Jo6tt vanegdtU Hort. has variegated leave*. 

The fnut-hearmg varielUt are arranged in the Ncmeau Du Hamfl, 
under the following heads : — 
I. Fleah whitish, and more or less odd; including the Montmorency 

S. Fletn whitiBh, and only very sli^tly Bcidi including the Englbh 

duke cherries. 
3. Flesh red, including the griottiers, or morellos. 

T%e Bigarreau is a tree of vigorous growth, with large pale green leaves, 
and stout divergent branche*. 

Builmrr't Yellow is a vigorous-growing tree, like the preceding, but with 
golden- coloured fruit. 

The Ketitiii Cherry ii a round-headed tree, with slender shoots, some- 
what pendulous. 

TV ifay Bate is B middle-Bzed or low tree with an erect fasti^Ie 

7%: MoreUo is a low tree, witli a spreading head, somewhat pendulous \ 
most prolific in flowers and fruit i the bttn- ripening very late, and, 


from not being so greedily eaten by the birds as most other sorts, 
hanging on the trees a long time. 
lyOHheim is a dwarf weeping tree, a sretit bearer. 
1^ G. t>. 6 Mar^Bcha^ PrinmiB Mardtcha Jacq., is the variety from the fruit 
of which the liqueur called Maraschino is made. Plants of it hare 
been raised in the Hort. Soc. Garden in 1837. 

The flowers are smaller than those of C. sylvestris. The fruit is round, 
melting, full of a watery sap, more or less flavoured, and almost always sen- 
sibly acid. The skin of the firait is commonly red, but, in the numerous va- 
rieties in cultivationjjiassing into all the shades between that colour and dark 
purple or black. Tne skin of all the varieties of C, vulgaris separates easily 
from the flesh, and the flesh parts readily from the stone; whue, in all the 
varieties of C sylvestris, the skin is more or less adhering to the flesh, and the 
flebh to the stone. {N, DuHam,, v. p. 18.) This species forms a tree of 
less magnitude than that of C. svlv^stris : it is never found in a truly wild 
state in Europe, and the aboriginal form is unknown. 

Remarks referring to both Species, -^ The cherry trees in cultivation, whether 
in woods or gardens, may, in point of general appearance, be included in three 
forms : large trees with stout branches, and shoots proceeding from the main 
stem horizontally^, or slightly inclining upwards, and when voung and without 
their leaves, bearing a distant resemblance to ^gantic candelabra, such as the 
gcans, and many of the heart cherries ; fastigiate trees of a smaller size, such 
as the dukes ; and small trees with weak wood, and branches divergent and 
drooping, such as the Kentish or Flemish cherries, and the morellos. The 
leaves vary so much In the cultivated varieties, that it is impossible to charac- 
terise the sorts by them ; but, in general, those of the lai^e trees are largest, 
and the lightest in colour, and those of the slender-branched trees the smallest, 
and the darkest in colour ; the flowers are also lar^t on the large trees. The 
distinction of two species, or races, is of very httle use, with reference to 
cherries as fruit-bearing plants ; but, as the wild sort, C. sylvestris, ia very 
distinct, when found in its native habitats, from the cherry cultivated in gar- 
dens, it seems worth while to keep them apart, with a view to arboriculture 
and ornamental planting. For this reason, also, we have kept Cinsua sem- 
perflorens, C. Pseudo-Ci^rasus, C, serrulata, and C, diamaecerasus apart, 
though we are convinced that thev are nothing more than varieties. In 
consequence of its rapid growth, tne red fruited variety ought to be pre- 
ferred where the object is timber, or where stocks are to be grown for 
fruit trees of large size. As a coppice-wood tree, the stools push freely and 
rapidly ; and, as a timber tree, it will attain its full size, in ordmary situations, 
in 50 years. Its rate of growth, in the first 10 years, will average, in ordinary 
circumstances, 18 in. a year. There are various trees in the neighbourhood 
of London upwards of 60 fb. high ; one on the Cotswold Hills, on the estate 
of the Earl of Harrowby, is 85 ft. high. The wood of the wild cherry (C\ 
sylvestris) is firm, strong, close-grained, and of a reddish coloiu*. It weigtis, 
when ^een, 611b. 13 oz. per cubic foot ; and when dry, 541b. 15oz. ; audit 
loses m the process of drying about a 16th part of its bulk. The wood is 
soft and easily worked, and it takes a fine polish. It is much sought after by 
cabinetmakers, turners, and musical instrument makers, more particularly in 
France, where mahogany is much less common than in Britain. The miit 
of the cherry is a favourite with almost every body, and especially with 
children. The distillers of liqueurs make great use of ripe cherries : the 
spirit known as kirschewasser is distilled from them after fermentation ; and 
both a wine and a vinegar are made by bruising the fruit and the kernels, and 
allowing the mass to undergo the vinous fermentation. The ratafia of Grenoble 
is a celebrated liqueur, which is made from a large black gean ; from which, also, 
the best kirschewasser is made j and the maraschino from a variety of the tree 
found in Dalmatia. The preparation of these will be found in our first edition.

This tree is readily known from the other cherry trees, 
even when without its leaves, by its rough gibbous joints, at 
which it readily strikes root; and is, consequently, very 
easily propagated. It has been tried by Mr. ICnight, as a 
fruit tree ; and he finds that it forces in pots better than 
any other variety. Desirable for small garaens, on account 
of its very early flowering.

Sir W. J. Hooker observes 
that a plant which he received under this name appeared 
to him identical with C. borealis ; the plants in the Lon- 
don gardens are very difterent, resembling much more 
closely the common sloe, as will appear by our figure.

Sir W. J. Hooker considers this sort as synonymous 
with C. bore&Iis Jlftciii., in which he may probably be 
correct. We have, however, kept tbem dutinct ; not 
only because the whole genus appears in a state of con- 
fusion, but because, though C, pennsylvanica is said to 

have been introduced in 1773, we have never seen the plu.. _, . 

and, consequently, (eel unable to give any decided opinion respecting it.
