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.

BY J. C- LOtTDON, r.L.S., H.S., &c, 










Ikis Abridgement of the Arboretum et Fruticctum BriUmnicum contains. — 

1. Obaracters and short Popular Descriptions of all the species and 
fBiieties of hardy trees and shrubs now in British gardens, with directions 
fix- their culture; including the soil most suitable for them, their pro- 
pegatioD, and their uses in the arts, &c. 

2. EngraTings of all the species which are described, with the exception of 
half a dozen. The whole arranged according to the Natural System ; all the 
engra?iiigs 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 
thor Popular Names in the languages of the different countries where they 
are indigeaous or cultivated. 

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

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 
particularly of pines, firs, and oaks, which wefe not in the country in 1838^ 
vben the large work was completed. 

In a wordi, though this 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 an^ of the portraits of entire trees which constitute so 
distinguished a feature m it, yet it contains all that is necessary to enable the 
reader to discover the names oi the different species, and to ascertain their 
culture, propagation, and uses in Britain ; in snort, all that is essential for 
the nuneryman, 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 fi*om which these additional figures were 
taken, be 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, the Museum of 
Natural History of Paris, and that of Berlin : and the Botanists who have 
kindly lent him drawings or specimens include the late A. B. Lambert, Esq. ; • 
Sir W. J. Hooker; Dr. Lindley; the late Professor Don; George Don, 
Esq., who prepared the characters of the Orders and of the Genera ; 
Messrs. I^oddigbs ; the late Professor DeCandollb ; M. Alphonse De 
Candollb ; W. Borrer, Esq. ; P. B. Webb, Esq. ; Baron De Lessert ; 
M.MicaAUx; Stgnor G. Manetti ; M. Otto; M. Charles Rauch; M. 
Fra?(cis Rauch, who made most of the drawings; and Drs. Torrey 
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 Nursery- 
men and Gardeners, both at home and abroad, who may have rendered him 
assistance, he b^s 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 
specimens sent home by their collectors, Douglas and Hartweg, and for 
authorising him to procure information from their intelligent and experienced 
niperintendent of the 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 his assistance.

All the botanic names throughout the Work are accented, and hare their origin indicated, as in 
the HortuM Britanninu and the Gardener** Magazine. The vowels which are sounded short are 
marked with an acute accent, thus ('). as A'ceras ; and those which are sounded long are marked 
with a grave accent, thus C)» a* A^brus. The origin of each name is indicated thus : if the naina 
has been applied to a plant by the anclenu, the first letter is in Italic, as PInus ; if it is comm» 
morative of some individual, the letters additional to the name are in italic, as Binksia, Laxo- 
berti'^Mii, Douglis/i ; and if an aboriginal name has been adopted, or if the name is of uncertaim 
derivation, the whole word Is in Italic, as, Aildnha^ Caragdna, Ac. Where the name would otherwiae 
be in Italic, as in the case of synonymes, headings to paragraphs, ftc, these distinctions are, ol 
course, reversed, as Vhtus, Bdniuiti, AiUntus. All the other scientific names, generic or specific, are 
composed from the Greek or Latin, except a very few which are taken flrom places : ■• Arauciria, 
from the oouutry of the Araucanians ; Qu6rcus gramikntia, ttcm the estate of Grammont, ftc.

T>ns and shrubs, in common with all other flowering plants, are arranged 
by botanists in two grand divisions ; viz. the Exogenous, or Dicotyledonous, 
Plants, the stems of which increase from without, and the leaves of which 
kire reticulated veins ; and the Endogenous, or Monocotyledonoiis, Plants, 
the stems of which increase from within, and the leaves of which have parallel 
veins. The fint class includes all the hardy trees and shrubs in Britain, with 
the excepdon of shrubs of the genera Yucca, SmWax, i2uscus, and one or two 
ochers, which belong to the second class. We shall arrange the genera and 
species under the same subdivisions, subclasses, sections, orders, and tr&ea, 
II we have adopted from DeCandoUe in our Horttu BrUanmcui, 

Class L EXaOENiE.

■/deae, it rarely happening tiiat those with a single floral envelope have any 
Mfitnt coionring. 


Howers un/h Petals and Stamens inserted in the Receptacle 

This subclass contains all the Polyandrous plants of Linnaeus ; as the sub- 
dm Galydfldras, io which the stamens are seated on the calyx, contains all 
the plaiits of the T^mmiMMi class Icos&ndria. 

Section L 

Crpefla, that », the componeiU Parts of compound Capsules or Fruits , numerous; 

or the Stamens placed opposite the Petals, 


Tbe Diagisostie, or Distinctive^ Character, or, as we shall term it, the Ordinal 
ClHracter, of this order, is thus given by Dr. Lindley : — " PofypetaSous, 



with hypogynous ttament [that is, stamens under the pistil] ; anthen bunting 
by longitudinal slits; several distinct simple caTT^^/Za [fruits]; exstipulate 
leavett sheathing at their base ; solid albumen ; and seeds without anllus." 
(^Nat. St/st., p. 6.) — Climbing shrubs scarcely woody, and low sufihiticose 
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, forming a sheath half-clasping the stem. Hairs 
if any, simple. Inflorescence smaU in Xanthorhlza, and some species of 
Clematis, and laree in Pseonia. Seeds small and pointed, except in Pieeonia. 
— The species in British gardens are included in two tribes, Clematldee 
and Psdoniace<s, which contain the genera Clematis, iitr&gene, Psboomv 
and Xanthorhlza. 

Tribe I. CLEMATi'DEiE. 

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

Genus I. 


C1-E'MATI8 L. The Clematis, or Vjxgin^s Bower, Lm. S^st. Poly- 

&ndria Polygynia. 

IdaU&leaHon, The word Klematls wa«, at well ai Atragene. used by Theopbraitoi, to detignste 
the Clfimatit ViUQba of Linnaeus. Clematis was used by Matthlolus, and aUo by Cluaius, who 
applied it to C. Vitic611a X. and C. cirrh6ta L, 

Svnomymei. Ladies' Dower Qerard\ Clfanatlte, Fr, \ Waldrebc, Qer. ; Clematide, Itat. 

Derivation. The word Clematis, or Klematls, Is derlred fk-om the Greek word Atfnni, a nnall 
branch of a Tine ; and it is applied to this genus, because most of the plants composing it climb 
like a Ttne. The English name of Ladies' Bower was probably adopted fVom its sultaUencss for 
coTerlng bowers ; and, as the first kind of clematis brought to England (C. Vltic^lla) was intro- 
duced in 1569, during the reign of Elisabeth, the name of Virgin's Bower might be intended to 
couTey a compliment to thai sovereign, who, as it is well known, liked to be called the Virgin 
Queen. Walorebe la compounded of imiAf, a wood, and rrte, 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 eieht coloured sepals. Petals none. Car'- 
pels numerous, aggrq^te, terminated by a long, and 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. 
(DonU MUl,) 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; 
smidl and white in some, and in others larger and highly coloured. Seed 


a tees ifivested of its enrdope, BB that never burats till after it it 
to the toil. — The species ate included in four lectiona ; ni. 
Vhic^la, Cbar6pas, and .i^neoianiflorB. 
Root strong ; the fibres rather straight, and not ver; much branched ; ex- 
tmded m the soil rather horizontaUy than peruendicularl;. Stem Ugneous, 
not li^d enough to itand erect. BraDches the uune, and slendo'. Well 
slipted for cOTerii^ bowera, or for ornasienting verandas or trellisworlc. The 
greiler number of the spedea ripen their seed* in England, and are eaaily 
fropa^etl by them, or by layers. The seeds retain their vitality for several 
jeara ; they are of slow vegetation, and ought to be sown as soon as gathered, 
in vbich case they vrill generally come up the following spring; though, some- 
dmei, not till the aecond spring. All the spedea require support by props of 
some kind ; and all, with one or two exceptions, grow freely in any soil that 
b iderablj dry, but more especially in one that is calcareoui. From the 
''' of these plants, they are not vera liable to be attacked by insects ; 
' '' ' dugs arc occasionally found eating their young herbage,

A vigorous-growing plant, the stems of which rapidly Bttain the length of

variation, from soil, situation, and climate. The peduncles of the flowers are 
aometiines simple, and sometimes branched. The colour of the sepals ia 
white, slightly pubescent on their exterior margins. The whole plant has a 
dark green hue; and in autumn it is abundantly covered with flowers, the 
odour of which is of a honied sweetness, exceedinriy disagreeable to some 
persons when near, though at a distance it is notunhke the fragrance of the 
common hawthorn. From the rnpiditv of its growth, it will in four or five 
yeati cover a very large space of wall, roof, or bower. Its herbage is con- 
sidered less acrid than that of any other of the European gpeciea, notwith-

It was sent from Japan to Europe by Dr. 

Sieboldt; and introduced into England in 

1836. It is a most ornamental plant, and as 

hardy and easily propagated as the other va- 

ri^y or the species. 

The stem is slender' 
and striated ; climbing 
to the height of 15 ft. 
or upwards when it is 
trained to a wall with a faTourable exposure, 
though never becoming very woody. The flowers 
are large and handsome, either in a single or 
double state ; and these, with the neatness of its 
foliage, and the slendemess of its stems and 
branches, give it such an air of elegance, that no 
lover of plants should be without it, who has a 
earden in which it will thrive. North of London 
It requires a wall ; and in Scotland, as well as 
in France and Germany, it is generally kept in 
the green-house. A mode of pruning plants of 
this species, by cutting them down to the ground 
1&. cuutofldiUk ~ annually, though not generally practised, is said 
to produce vigorous shoots and fine flowers. This species never ripens seeds 
ia England, and is therefore only propagated by layers.

The habit of growth of this plant is that of C. Vitic^Ila, to which it also 
comes nearest. in affinity, but, though less woody, its shoots are much more 
robust; the much smaller and white flowers, and pointed sepals connivent (that 
is, lying dose together) below, will readily distinguish it. It seldom ripens

do not generally rise higher than 3 or 4 feet. The plants frequently die down 
to the groumi, so that this species requires to be treated more as herbaceous 
than Igneous. It ripens seeds plentifully.

The leaves vary from simple to temate ; and from being entire to being 

deeply cot. The flowers appear at the end of December, or the beginning 
of January, and continue till the middle or end of April. They are pendulous 
and bell-ahaped, the mouth being of the brcaiith of a shilling, or more. Their 
colour is greenish white, with some purple on the iiisidL-, The sepals are 
downy without, and smooth within. In its native country it is said to climb 
up and overwhelm the Irtes ; but in England it is a weak plant, not very 
readily kept. In nurseries it is generally cultivated in pots, and kept in a 
green-house, or in a cold-frame. The princi|ial beauties of this «>ecies coti*

^fnonymeg. Clematis Lam. and Dec. ; Atragene, Fr. and Ger. 

Derivation. The name of^trigene appears to be taken from two Greek words ; oiAm, pressed, 
and fanos, birth ; alluding, as it is supposed, to the manner in which the branches press «gainst 
or clasp the trees that support them. It was first used by Theophrastus, and was bv him applied 
to C16matU Vit&lba L. / »- / w 

Gen. Char. Involucre none. Sepalt 4, somewhat induplicate in the bud. 
Petals numerous, shorter than the sepals. Cariopsidet (carpels) terminated 
by a bearded tail. Cotyledons approximate in the seed. (DorCs Miil,^ 

Leaves compound, opposite, generally exstipulate, aeciduous; leafleti 
variously cut. Flowers axillary, pedunculate ; purple, blue, or white. 
Climbing shrubs, natives of Europe and North America. 

The atragenes differ from the clematises in producing leaves and one flower 
from the same bud contemporaneously; whereas in most clematises the 
flowers are produced upon wood developed previously to their appearance, 
and during the same season. Hence the winter buds of ^Itr^gene are larger 
than those of Clematis, from their including the flower as well as the leaves 
of the succeeding year. In atragenes the leaves are less divided than in many 
of the species of Clematis, and they are always divided temately. All the 
species of Atrkgene described in this work have petioles, which not only clasp 
objects, like those of CTl^matis, but maintain the hold for more than the 
season, like the vine. All extremely interesting from the beauty of their 
blossoms. The culture is the same as in Clematis, and the propagation 
generally by layers.

Varieties. DeCandolle mentions its varying with

below as a species with yellowish white flowers, 
appears to us nothing more than a variety of 
A. alpina. 

The stems are numerous, branching, weak, 
forming knots at the joints where the leaves and 
flowers are protruded. One flower, on a longish 
scape, springs from between the leaves. The sepals 
are twice the leruzth of the petals, and are blue 
on both sides. The petals are small, of a duty 
white, and in general 12 in number. Very orna- 
mental. Layers.

small purplish flowers (which are usually unisexual 
ft'ora abortion) rising from the scaly buds. The flowers 
appear early in May, and continue a month or upwards

Gen, Char. Cafyx of 3 deciduous sepals, that resemble petals. Coroila of 
from 6 — ^9 petals. Stanteru numerous. Pistils numerous. Carpels disposed 
compactly in spikes, opening bv the external angie, 1 — ^2-seeded, permanent. 
Seeds baccate, somewhat corcmte, pendulous, hanging out beyond the car- 
pels by a very long umbilical white thread.

oblong or oval, stipulate. Flowers terminal, solitary, large, odoriferous. 
Seed Targe, roundisn, 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 Bntain, 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. glauca, for example, thrive 
best in a moist peaty soil. Few of the species ripen 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. grandifldra, are most fret^uently 
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 any distance without injury to the 
roots, which are few and succulent, and easily damaged by exposure to the 
air and light. The hardy species of this genus are included in two sections, 
Magnolioj^rum and Gwillfmia.

nuwd as (ti:>tinct. In the garden of the London Horticidtural Society, 
ia 1834, there were plants with the following naiDes : — M. g. vera, M. g. 
lat^iSa, M. B. ffoninuit mr., and M.g. ruhi^dia. In the London nurse- 
ries are — Sf. g. tataadifolia Swt., M. g. elliptica Ait., and various oCheis. 
In the nuraerj' of M. "Roy, at Angers, are 18 varieties, among which ure

qiiently niUed from American, French, or Italian seeds ; and, hence, the 
pUtits, though they grow freely, do not flower for SO or 30 years after being 

Slanted out. For this reason, when it is denired to have plants of the 
lagLiolia graadifl^ra which will flower early, those plants which have been

In its native country, M. granJiflora is a tree varying from 60 ft. to 
100 fl., or upwards, in height; but in Europe, except in some situations in 
Spain and Italy, and a few in the South of Engbnd, it is chiefly to be 
conaidered m a wall tree. 

A deep sandy loam, dry at bottom, and enriched with vegetable mould or 
heath toil, teems to suit all the varieties of this species. When these Are 
to be trained against a wall, any aspect may be chosen, except, perhapa, 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 eftbcted by forming stools either in warm 
situations in the open air, to be protected during winter, or in cold-pits. 
The shoots are laid down in autumn, and require two years to become 
sufficiently 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. grandiflora is occ«- 
■ionally rained from American seeds. In planting, the ball should be care~ 
fully broken by the hand, and the roots spread out in every direcdon, and 
covered with heath mould, or a mixture of leaf mould and sandy loam. The

of the water may wash the loil iuto every crevice fonned by the roots, 
ud MQSolidaie it there. Shading will be advisable for some weeks after 
pluiting. If the Eimouth variety be chosen, layert will produce flower* in a 
jcv or two after being separstetl from ihe parent plant, if kept in pots; but, 
■Ilea they are plan teu out, and grow freely, bo as to make snoots of 8 or 3 
!ect eiay season, tbey will probably not flower for three or four years. 
Whether the tree be against a wall or trellis, or treated as a standard, all the 
pruning it will require, afier it has begun to grow freely, will be, to cut out 
the itiunpi ircyia which the flowers or the strobiles have dropped off, and 
lay dad or decaying wood, and any branches which cross and nib on each 
omer. M^nolias against a wall require very little protection, even when 
jooni; lod this can easily be pven by mulching the ground at the roots, and 
coTOiog their branches with a mat, or with the fronds of the spruce fir.

lui M. g. ThoinpsoniaiiD, which muy have come up wild in America, as well 
as in Mr. Thompson's nursery. M.g. Cartldnii, M. Cardon J. JCm^bt, is a 
variety imparted frani Bel^uin, where it wax found by Mr. Knight of 
the Exotic Nursery, in the nursery of M. Cardon, after whom he has 
named it. 

A low tree, nearly eve^cen in moist soda, with a slender stem, covered 
with a smooth whitish bark. The wood is white and spongy; the young 
shoots of a fine green. The leaves are smooth, of a bluish Rreen on their 
upper surface, und whitish or glaucous and a little hidi^ underneath. The 
flowers are produced in Msy or June, at the extremity of the last year's shoots. 
-They have nix concave white petals, and have an agreeable odour. The 
spike or strobile of fruits is an inch or more in length, conical, an inch in 
oianieter in the widest part, and of a reddish brown colour when ripe. When 
the plant is in a boil supplied vith moisture during the summer, it continues 
to produce flowers till the autumn, and retains part of il^ leaves all the winter : 
in dry situations the leaves drop otf. Seeds are frequently ripened in Eng- 
land ; they are of a bright scarlet, and they hang down by slender white 
threads, as in hU the other American species. The young shoots are from 1 ft. 
to IB in. in length, and the plant, in ordinary circumstances, will attain the 
height of 13 ft. In ten yenrs. Plants are generally raised from seeds imported 
from America, which should be sown in pots of bog earth about the besiit- 
ning of March, and placed in gentle heat under glass. In a year they will be 
fit to transplant into small pots ; and everv year they should be shifted into 
others of a larger size, till wanted for final planting out. M. glauca Thomp- 
Eoniaui, and the other varieties, are propagated by iHyers, which require two 
years to root properly.

6 inches lung, luid iil>out 8 in. in diameter ; it is of a beautiful rase colour, and 
con:ains usually from 50 to 60 seeds. This sjiccies is very hardy, and can 
withstand the most rigorous winters,' when the summer has been suiEcienily 
hot to ripen the wu^ thoroughly. As it is a short-lived tree, and cnnse- 

Siiently flowers early, there Is not the winie objection to raisicc; plants of it 
■oin seed, as there is to raising plants in that manner of M. grandifldra, 
which is a long-Jived species. The soil should be a deep, rich, sandj loam, bdiI 
the situation sheltered nnd shaded. Exposure to the sun is tujurious ; and, 
trained against a south wall, the plant suflers extremely. A sheltered ({lade 
in a shrubbery or wood, where the tree is sufficiently distant from others not to 
be injured by their roots, is the moat desirable site. In the nurseries it is 
nluiost always propagated by seeds, which should be sown immediately after 
ihev are gathered, as when they are left exposed they became rancid and lose 
their vital qualities ; though, ir enveloped in moist moss or earth, they may be 
preiierved for several months. The plants should be kept in pots until 
required for final transplanting.

Lnii and Georgia, Height 30tt to 40 ft. in America ; 15 ft, to 30 ft. in 
England. Introduced in 1800. Flowers white, with a purple spot near 
the base of each petal; 8 in. to 10 in. in diameter, fragruntj June and 
July. Strobile rose-coloured ; ripe in Oetuber, Decaying leave* yellow,

Tbe general appearance of this tree greatly resembles^ that of Magnolia 
tiipetala. The termiiial arrangemeut of the leaves is the same, and it is 
rcnarkabie that in Amenca the two trees are almost always found together, 
la point of size, it exceeds the M. tripetala, both in its leaves and general 
hapa. ; 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 ftiDootb and very white bark, by which, in the winter, when stripped ot 
its leaves, it is readily distinguished from M. tripetala. At this season, also, it 
may be distinguished by its buds, which are compressed, and covered with a 
m andalver)' down ; whereas in M. tripetala they are prominent and rounded 
at the end. The leaves, in its native country, are 35 in. long, and 9 or 10 
indies 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 tbe leaves, and are of an oblong oval shape, pointed at the extremity, 
aod cordiform at the base ; their colour is light green above, and glaucous 
benestb. The fruit is about-4 in. long, 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 yearns shoots may then be from 1 ft. to 3 fl. ; so that in ten 
jem a plant may attain the height of 12 or 15 feet. It may be considered 
a sfaort-lifed tree, and, like all such, it comes into flower when young. It has 
rarely, if ever, been propagated in this country by inarching or layers, and 
▼en sddom from seeds ; and, hence, the plant is very sparmely distributed. 
So3, propagation, &c^ as in M. tripetala. Seeds are ripened m France, and 
joung plants imported from that country, or from North America.

Other Varieties, The MapidUa acuminata being frequently raised from 
seed, and the seedlings varying much in the size ot their leaves, and in the 
presence or absence of pubescence, 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, latifolia, &c. In the Gold worth Nursery, 
Woking, Surrey, are some which appear remarkably distinct. 

Trunk straight, branches numerous, shoots regularly distributed. The 
leaves are from 6 in. to 7 in. long, and ftom 3 in. to 4< in. broad, upoi. old 
trees, bttt double that size upon young vigorous-growing plants. Michaux 
^esaiba them as oval, entire, and verv acuminate; but, in the seedlings 
T^ned in British nurseries, they are found somethnes ovate, nearly orbiculate. 


and conlete acumioate. The flowers are 4 or 5 inches in diameter, bluish, 
and (ometimes white, with a tint of yellow. They have but a feeble odoiir, 
and the petals are never hiUy expanded, ihougn, a« they are large and 
numerouK, they have a fine effect in the iDi£t of the superb foliage. 
Plants raised from seeds do not nsually produce flowers till they are 
eight or ten yeura old, when the tree will probablv be from 15 ft to SO ft. 
in height; but plants raised from kkjeis produce flowers in two or diree 
years. The fruit is about 3 in. loug, and Dearly 1 in. in diameter. It is 
nearly cylindrical, and often a little larger at the summit than at the base : it 
b convex on one side, and concave on the other ; and, when green, it nearl; 
resembles a young cucumber: it becomes rose-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 
fincgrain, and of an orange colour. A free,deep,an(l rather moist soil answers 
best for this specica ; but, as it h much hardier than any of the others in this 
section, it wilt grow in almost any soil tliiit 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 iiu- more durable plants, should always be preferred 
when this species is used as a stock to grait or inarch others i>n. It is so used 
rv generally, not only for M. auriculata and cordata, but for M. consptctia 
□ SouliuiEeana. The plants are, in some nurseries, grown in the free soil ; 
Dut it is always preferable to rear them in pots ; because, in that case.

This tree has a straight trunk 12 or 15 inches in diameter, often without 
branches for half its hei;;ht ; the branches siiread widely, and ramify but 
sparingly 1 and this circumstance. Michaux observes, gives the tree a very 
peculiar air, so that it may readily be known at a distance, even in winter.

Tliis is a rery showy tree, distinguiahable from all the other mHignoliait 
of both aectiana, by ica flowers expanding before any of the leaves. The 
tree aaaumeH a regular conical shape, with a grey bark and nunieroua 
hninchcs and twiua. which generally have a Tertical, mther than a horitontat, 
direction. The young ehoots are from I ft. to 18 in. in length, and the tree, 
in ten years, will attain tlie height of from 10 ft. to 15 ft., flowering the second 
or third year after grafting. It ii 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 this species best; but it will (irow in any de^ 
free soil, properly drained, and moderately enriched. The situation, when it 
is to be trcHteil an a standard, ought tobesufficleDtly open to admit of ripening 
the wood in uutumn, and yet not so warm as to urge forward the floHcr-bu<ls 
prematurely in spring, as they are very lialde to be injured by frost; front 
whch, however, tliey may be protected by a very slight covering (during nights 
and frottty days) of gauze or bunting, stretched over the tree horiiontHlly, 
and supported by posts. Against a wall, ihe tree shows itself in its greateit 
beauty ( and there it can easily be protected, by a projecting coping, from the 
severest weather ever experienced In the neighbourhood of London. In 
wnrm situations, sloping to the south or south-east, the tree has a fine eflect 
planted in Front of a bank of evergreensj and, indeeil, wherever it is planted, 
evergreens should be placed near it, and, if possible, so as to fomi a fuok- 
ground, on account of^ 'he flowers expanding! beFore the tree ia furnished with 
any leaves. The species and all the varieties are propi^te<l by layers, or 
by inarching on M. purpiirea or on M. acuminata. When inarched on M. 
purpurea, the tree is comparatively dwarfed, by which it is rendered very con- 
venient for use as a shrub, or fur growing in pots, and forcing ; but, when it is 
intended to form a tree, it should either be inarched on M. acuminiita, or raised 

from layers or seeds. It generally requires two years before the plants c 

be sepa rated from the parent stock. Some plants of this Bpecies nave been 

raised from seed ripened in Europe ; and we have no doubt that, when this 

magnificent tree becomes better known and more generally in demand, i_ 
wilt be raised in this way extensively in France and Italy, and supplied to 
the British nurseries from these countries.

points of di^reuce between it and M, purpurea are. the paler green, 
and somewhat narrower shape, of the leaves ; and the loneer and 
iDOre slender form of the flower, the points of the petals of which 
are slightly turned back ; while the flower of M. purpurea is more 
cnp-sbapeJ, and the petals at the points are rather turned InwardB. 
The petals of M. gracilis are on the exterior entirely of a dark purple, 
whereas tlioxe of M. purpurea melt off" into white al their upper 
eitremities. A number of plants of this variety, which stood in the 
Hammenmith Nursery as border shrubs, and flowered freely every 
year, were killed down to the ground in the winter of 1837-8. 
Olirr Ftaie^rt. In DeCandoile's Prodromat, and in Don's Miller, three 
varieties are described : M. p. dauuiaia Lam., distinguished by (he flower- 
ing tvascbes bdng without leaves ; M. p. ducoior Vent, which is said to be 
rather more tender than the species ; and jV. p. \ilifidra Lam., the petals of 
ubicb are white on both sides. These varieties were originally described 
b; tCcmpfer; but, as far as we know, none oi them are in British gardens. 
Scvtral plantH of this species having been raised from tteed ripened in this 
lountiT, the plants may exhibit slight shade!) of dilfcrence, as has been the 
case with certain seedlings raised in the Brentford Nursery ; but, as far as 
we have observed, none of these are worth keeping distinct. The only 
•viety which we consider truly distinct is M. p.gradlii, cousldered as a 
species by Salisbury and other botanists, but 
wbich, we are convinced, is nothing more tban 
> race, or a variety. At Desio, a variety has 
been raised which grows only 1^ f^. high, and 
which S^or Cassoretti, the garden director 
there, calla if. odovdta pumiia.

■nanientsl species, which no garden ought to be without. This species is 
•merally crauidered as retjuiring a mixture of heath soil, or sandy peut, with 
■oan , but in many ^rdens about London it succeeds perfectly both in sand 
D 8 


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* ought 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 ft. 
or 20 ft. In the London nurseries, it is generally propagated by layers ; but 
it will also strike by cuttings, both of the ripened and the herbaceous wood. 
The stools are generally formed 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 raised 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 <m a stock for grafting the other kinds on, which belong to this section.

tbe besL The heart, or perfect, wood of the tulip tree is yellow, approaching 
to B lonon colour ; and its sap, or alburnum, is white. The annual shoots of 
}oane plants, in tbe neighbourhood of London, are fromlBm. to 
length ; and the tree will, in favourable circumstances, attain the height of 
from lA fL to 80 ft in ten years ; seldom, however, Sewering till it is upwards 
or twenty ydrs old. The height, in England, frequently exceeds 70 ft, ; and 
it has ripened seeds here, occasionally, from which young plants have been 
laised. It ripens its fruit very generally in France ; thougn it is observed, in 
the A'oiiBtau Du Hamcl, that these seeds do not vegetate so freely as those 
which are imparted from America. Deep, loamy, good soil best suits the 
tulip tree ; and tbe situation most favourable ie one which, while it is sheltered 
from high winds, b, at the same time, sufficiently exposed to the light and air 
to admit of the maturation of its leaves on eve:^ siiie, and the perfect ripening 
of its wood, without which it can neither resist the severe frosts of winter, 
DOT Ibnn blossom buds. The species is seldom, if ever, propagated otherwise 
than by »eeds, which come up be«t in heath soil, very fine mould, or sandy 
kmo, in a shady situation, kept rather moist ; but the varieties are multiplied 
by layers or inarching. When the seeds are sown in autumn, they genernily 
oKiie up the following spring ; but, sown in spring or the beeinning of summer, 
tliey generally remain a year in the ground. The tulip tree, like the magnolias, 
faaviQE roots furnished with but few fibres, doea not transplant readily ; and, 
thereiore, tbe plants ought either to be kept in pots, or, if in the free ground, 
irsonilatited in the nursery every year; or, if neither uf these modes be prac- 
ticable, removed to their Snal situation, when not more than two, or at most 
three, years old. The tree is. Eke the magnolias, not very patient of the knife, 
other in a young or in an old state; and, from the bitter qualities of the 
n .3 


leaven, it does not seem to be much attacked by insects. As tuHp trees raised 
fi^om 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 of which the plants would probably 
flower the second or third year. 


Ord. Char. The distinctive characteristics of this order from that of Magno- 
Mhce€B are : Anthers with an enlarged four-cornered connectivum, which is 
sometimes nectariferous ; albumen pierced by the substance of the seed-coat ; 
leaves without stipules, conduphcate 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 pellucid dots. Flowers axillary. — The 
hardy species, in British gardens, are included in the genus Asimina Adans., 
formerly Anona L., and are natives of North America.

HiUer, aod also Du Hamel, both say that suckers taken from this 
variety commonly produce fruit with seeds; that, as ihe tree grows 
oldo-, the seeds become fewer, and that it is the age of the [ilant 
that at last can«es the fruit to be seedless ; in that case this plant 
must be considered more a variation than a variety. B. v. aeperma 
is Bwd by Du Hamel to produce the best fruit for preserving; and 
it is from it that the delicious Confituret (TE'pine vineltc, for which 
Rouen is so celebrated, are made. (AWc. Dak., iv. p. Vi.)

All these varieties are in the London Horticultural Society's Garden. 
(Mer Vanctiei. In the Horticultural Sodety's Garden a number of 
■U^ed species of berberries have been raised from seed, which have all 
proved varietiea of B. vulgaris, and most of theni so slight, as to be scarcely 
■orth keeping diatiact. (See Gard. Mag., vol. xvi. p. 2.) 
He cooiiDoo berberry will live for two ot three centuries, without increasing 
oDcb b size. The wood is hard and brittle, of a yellow colour, and but 
'inlt used except for dyeing. The rate of growth, when the plant ia young, 
i> npid ; bimI, in consequence, in live or six years it will attain the bd^t of 


7 or 8 feet i but it grows slowly afterwards, unless the suckers are removeJ 
from it as they are produced. It is seldom seen above 10 k. high ; but there 
are exaifiples of trees of it 30 ft. high, probably of 30 years' ftrowtb. The 
inner burk, both of the steins and roots, affords a yellow dye. The leaTcs are 
agreeably acid, end, according to Gerard, were used in his time " to seasoD 
meat with, and bslead of a salad, like sorrel." The berries are so acid, that 
birds 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 only delicious to the taste, but extremely whole- 
some ; and they are pickled in vinegar, when green, as a substitute for capers. 
The plant is cultivated iu gardens as a fruit tree or fruit shrub ; aod the 
variety, or rather variation, in which the seeds are said to be wanting, and 
that iu which the fruit is sweet, ere recommended in preference. The plant 
makes an excellent hedge ; but there exists a pr^udice against it among agri- 
culturists, from ita supposed influence in producing blight, or mildew, on the 
com adjoining it. This opinion is of unknown antiquity; but it is now ge- 
nerally considered to be an erroneous prejudice.

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. (Roylc's 
Hitut,, p. 63.) In Nepal, the fruit of this species is dried, like grapes for 
formin<; 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 Oaixien, 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. chiiensis Gill., B. vuidfolia Lam., B. 
corymbota Hook, et Am., B. glomerdta Hook, et Am., and B. GrevUkknA. GUl^ 
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 species, but very few of tnem are worth keeping distinct.

in the Horticultural Society's Garden in 1639.

coriaceous, with the margins toothed or serrated. Floioers yellow. FruU

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 tlie other, 
as to induce us to adopt the genus Mah6nia. The species in British gardens 
are all of comparatively slow growth, 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 Mahonia, and also of those of Berberis^ if 
sown immediately after they are ripe, and protected through the winter from 
frost, will come up the following spring.

ft Jf. r. 2 repenpfasdcularit, — Habit of M. fascicul^ris, with larger and 
more robust foliage, resembling that of M. repens. A sport, or a 
hybrid, produced accidentally in the Sawbridgeworth Nursery. 

Hie shoots consist chiefly of short unbranched suckers, with the leaves some- 
what glauoons on both sumces.* The racemes of flowers are terminal, nume- 
rous, bscided, diffuse, rising from scalv buds. The plant, in British gardens, is 
perfectly hardy, and produces a provision of rich yellow flowers in April 
snd May. Layers or suckers; but it does not root readily. Seeds are 
wmedmes produced. 

Other Species of MahdmsL are no doubt in British gardens ; but as they 
ha? e been only raised lately from Kepal or Mexican seeds, nothing can be 
recorded of them with that degree of certainty and detail which is suit- 
able for this work. JfoAoma lemafoSa, 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. fescicularis ; but this is uncertain. M, nepaUruisy M, Bcanthi'

Stamens numerous. Fruit capsular, 3---5-valved, 5 — 10-celled, with pari-

Leaves simple, opposite or alternate (the lowest leaves always oppo- 
site), stipulate or exstipulate, deciduous or sub-evergreen; generally pubes- 
cent, pubescence simple or stellate. Flowers large, showy, white, red,

Europe and Africa. 

The dstices have no medical properties ; but the resinous balsamic sub- 
stance called ladanum or labdanum is produced from C. cr^ticus, C. lada- 
niferus, C. /aurifdlius, and one or two other species. Their use in gardens is 
for ornamenting rock work, 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 they are readily 
propagated by seeds, which, in fine seasons, they produce in abundance, or 
by cuttings ; the plants, in both cases, flowering the second year. Though 
easily propagated, the Clst^ceae do not readily bear transplanting, baring 
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 the 
winter season, they should be protected by some slight covering during 
severe weather. The hardy ligneous species are included in two genera ; which 
are thus contradistinguished by DeCandoUe and 6. 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.

brnndlb^niore than a variety of that species. Young 
cnnii^s, Sweet observes, planted under hand-glasses "' '*™"*^°'' 

in autumn, will strike root; but the best way is to raise them from layers 
orfron seed. There was, in 1634, a plant of this species at Minard, in Ar- 
jQlUhirc. T ft. 9 in. high, with a head 12 Tt. in diameter, which is clothed with 
■overt every year. 

OHitr Speriet of Cithu are described in Sweet's GslinriE, as nearly equally

>» to omit th«n. Those who intend to treat them as garden plants, and can 
librd theoi a Hitle protection during wintec, will find 36 species, besides 
tirietiei, described in the first edition of this work, and several of them

M nrach regard to their names, will have recourse to the mode recommended

Deritntion. The word hibitkoi is one of the names given by the Greeks to the mallow. The HMacoM 
of PJiny appears to be an umbelliferoiu plant ; while that of Virgil is a pUnt with pliant branchea, 
which was made into baskets. The wonl ^bfscus is supposed by some to be derlyed from ibis, « 
stork, which Is said to feed on some of the species. Ketmie (iPlr.) is derived ttoax Kttmiat the name 
given to the genus by Toumefort. Eibisch is the German aboriginal word for the mallow. 

Gen. Char. Calyx encompassed by a many-leaved, rarely by a few-leaved, in- 
volucel, or one with its leaves connate. Petals not auricled. Stigmat 5. 
Carpels joined into a 5-celled 5-valved capsule, with a dissepiment in the 
middle of each valve on the inside. Cells many-seeded, rarely I-seeded. 

Leaves simple, alternate, stipulate, deciduous; variously lobed and 
toothed, generally ovate-wedge-shaped. Flowers pedunculate, large, showy.

One of our most ornamental hardy shrubs, of which •*• *«««»*nWn». 
there are the following varieties : — 

A H. s. 2 Jtilns variegdtis. — Leaves variegated. 

«24 H. *. 3 Jidre variesdto. — Flowers variegated.

ii H. «. Q Jlore rubro. — Flowers red. 

ft H. *. 7 Jidre 6lbo, — Flowers white. 

A H. s. 6 Jidre dlbo pleno. — Flowers double, white. 


Branches numerous, upright, white^barked ; their general character being 
rather fastigiate than spreading. Leayes variously lobed ; flowers axillary, 
large, and bell-shaped. Conspicuously ornamental ; and the more valuable, 
because it produces its flowers at a time of the year when few shrubs are 
b bloom. It forms beautiful garden hedges ; more especially i^hen the 
diiereot sorts are planted in a harmonious order of succession, according to 
tbdr colours ; and when the plants are not clipped, but carefully pruned with 
the knife. In the colder parts of Britain, ana in the north of Germany, few 
omamental shrubs better deserve bein^ planted against a wall. It will grow 
m almost any soil not too wet ; but, like all the il/alviceae, 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 
wrts, and sometimes by cuttings of the ripened wood, planted in sand in 
autumn, and covered with a hand-glass during tlie winter.

The wood of the lime tree is of a pale yellow or white, close-grained, soft, 
Eght, and smooth, and not attacked by insects. It weighs, per cubic foot, 
vben green, 55 lb. ; half-dry, 45 lb. ; and dry, 37 lb. ; and it loses a third 
part of its weieht, and a fourth part of its bulk, by drying. (Baudrill,) It is 
used by pianoforte^makers for sounding-boards, and l^ cabinet-makers for a 
variety ot purposes. It is carved into toys, and turned into domestic utensils 
of various kinds, and into small boxes for the apothecaries. The most elegant 
Dse to which it is applied is for ornamental carving, for which it is superior to 
erery other wood. This wood is s^d to make excellent charcoal for gun- 
powder ; even l)etter than alder, and nearly as good as hazel. Baskets and 
cradles were formerly made from the twigs ; and shoemakers and glovers are 
ssad to prefer planks of lime tree for cutting the finer kinds of leather upon. 
The leaves of tiie lime tree, in common with those of the elm and the poplar, 
vere used, both in a dried and in a green state, for feeding cattle, by the Ro- 
mans ; and they are still collected for the same purpose in Sweden, Norw'ay, 
Camiola, and Switzerland. One of the most important uses of the lime tree, 
ID the North of £nrope, 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 young shoots for the upper parts of 
thdr shoes, the outer bark serves for tlie soles ; and they also make of it, 
tied together with strips of the inner bark, baskets and boxes for domestic 
porposes. The outer bark of old trees supplies them, like that of the birch, 
vito 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, 
bj Biaceration, so as to form a kind of flax ; and the shepherds of Carniola 
veave a coarse cloth of it, which serves them for :heir ordinary clothing. The 
■p of the lime tree, drawn off in spring, and evaporated, affords a considerable 
quantity of sugar. The honey produced by the flowers is considered superior 
to ail other kinds for its delicacy. London and Wise recommended the lime 
tree, as preferable to the elm, for sheltering gardens or orchards ; because the 
t>oC8 do not, like those ot 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 
t large sixe, and it loses its leaves earlier than any other tree. Being a tree 
of the piams, rather than of the mountains, it does not appear suitable for ex- 
posed sor&ces : but it requures a pure air rather than otherwise ; for, though. 
It is foond 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 seldonf propagated otherwise than by layers, which 
•re made in the nurseries in autumn and winter ; and which become rooted, 
10 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 this \* nothing more than a very diatinet race of 
the common lime ; notwithstanding; the circumstance of iti having scales id ita 
petHli, which no one of the other varieties uf T. europx^ is sa:d to ponseaa. 
Even allowing this strurture to be permanent in the Hungarinn lime, the tree 
bears such a general resemblance to T. ciiropsHi in all its main features, tbst 
it seems to us impossible to doubt the identity of their orlfcin. We are 
strengthened in this opinion by the circumstance of its being found only in 
isolated stations in the Hungarian furests. We have, however, placed this 
lime by itself, rather than among the other varieties ; because, from the white- 
ness of its foliage, it is fiu* more obviously distinct than T. e. grandifolia or 
T. e. parvilblia. The tree is at once distin^ishable from all the other species 
and varieties by this white appearance, even at a considerable distance, and 
by the strikingly snowy hue of its leaves when they are ruffled by the wind. 
Its wood and shoots resemble those of the common lime ; but it does Dot 
attain the same height as that tree.

On a ^neral view of the trees, the inot>t obvious exteniai difierential ch>- 
rBcterJBtics of the European anil Ainericsn limes appear to ua to be, that 
the former have rei<ulany cotdate, and the latter obliquely cordate, learet. 
The other American limes we consider to be nothing more than vnrietiea of 
this GpecieH. La^erR. Tbeiie trees only thrive in warm sheltered siluauons. 
Tlie American lime is readilj' distin^ished from the European limes bf the 
lergeness of its leaves, wbicb are 3 in. to 4 in. wide, heart-shaped, acutdy 

pointed, covBely and mucronately serrated, deep green and glabrous on &at 
upper sides, and pale green beneath. Some oi them have a tendency to be 
slightly pubescent ; but they are generally smooth and shining. In winter, 
this S))ecie$ is readily recognised by the robust appearance of »ie trunk and 
branchifS, and by the dark-brown colour of tlie bu'k on the young ahoott. 
Tills circumstance alone ia a very marked distinction ; and has, no doubt, pro- 
cured for the species the name ^ the black lime tree. 



Otker American Limes. — T. p, Uptoph^Ua Vent, is mentioned by Torrey and 
Gib/ as havuig the leaves very thin and papyraceous. There were in 1834 
oCberTBrieties in the H. S. O., but the plants had not attained sufficient size to 
eoable us to state any thing with certainty respecting them. All the species 
and Tsriedes of American limes are delicate in this country ; they are readily 
iDJured 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 
^oiiiig wood. Some of the oldest and largest American limes in England are 
a G^toQ Park, Surrey, near the lake ; and at Croome, near Upton upon

DtrwUiotu. The name of HypMcnm is as old as the time of Diosooridet ; oat Its origin and mean- 
ing are uncertain. Some denVe it from the Greek words Auywr, under, and eikon, an Image ; and 
suppose it to signify that the upper part of the flower represents a figure. Others state that kt^po" 
signifies through, and that the name alludes to the pellucid dots in the leaves, which form small 
lenses, through which, when held up to the light. Images might be seen. The French name of the 
plant. Mllle rertuls, a thousand pores, is erldently derived from the same source. The English 
name, St. J(rfm*s wort, and the German one, Johanniskraut, are taken ftrom the country people 
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 spirits. This plant, with some otiiers, was emnlorcd 
to make what was called John's fire, which was supposed to be a security, for those who kindled It, 
against witchcraft aud all attacks of demons. For this reason, also, the J7yp4ricam received the 
name of Fuga Dasmonum.

Derivation. This species was called ifndrosseVium by the old writers on botany, on account of the 
tinge of red in dilFercnt places on the stems, and the redness of the anthers, which were supposed 
to give it the appearance 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 sixe of its 
flowers is remarkable, and has given rise to most of its other names. The name of the Terrestrial 
Sun isvenr appropriate to the large golden flowers, with their long ray-like stamens, lying glittering 
on a bed or dark green shining leaves, which spread over the surface of the ground. The 
number and length of the stamens are, doubtless, also the origin of the name of Aaron's Beard.

Cork, in woods. Height 1 ft. to 1| ft. Flowers of a 
bright golden yellow, with innumerable reddish tre- 
mulous anthers ; June to September. Capsule reddish 
brown ; ripe in October. 

Valuable for covering banks, rockwork, or the surface 
of the ground in old shrubberies or picturesque woods, 
especially for the latter purpose, as it thrives perfectly well 
under the drip and shade ot 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 
square yards in a very short space of time. It is an excellent shelter for 
game. It* may be reaidily increased to any extent by division.

From ooer,hard or sharp, derfred from oc, Celtic, a point. The name is supposed to be 

applied to this genus because the wood of some spedes ia extremely liard, and was formerly much 

anqght sfter for the pnrpoce of making pikes and lanoei. 

Gn. Char. Seaca hermaphrodite, or monoeciously polygamous. Ftotuers 
with a calyx and corolla. Cafyx divided into 5 parts, or some number be- 
tween 4 and 9. PetdU the same in number. Stamens 8, or some number 
between 5 and 12. Anthers 24obed. Carpels 2, very rarely 3, each a 
samara; that is, a fruit which is called in Britain, vernacularly, a key. — 
Decidooos trees, natives of Europe, North America, and Asia. 

Lemet simple, opposite, exstipulate, deciduous, rarely evergreen; va- 
rioQsly lobed, toothed. Flowers axillary, corymbose. Fndt a samara. 
Becsying leaves ridi yellow in some, and red or brown in others. 

Several of the species produce useful timber; and sugar is one of the con- 
stituent parts of the sap of all of them. They all prefer a situation shel- 
tered rather than exposed ; a free, deep, loamy soil, rich rather than sterile, 
and ndther very wet, nor very dry. They are propagated by seeds and layers, 
or by graftiDg. The maturity of the seed may be proved by opening the key, 
lod observing if the cotyledons are green, succulent, and fresh ; if the green 
colour of the cotyledons is wanting, 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 is preferable where moles abound, as they 
are veiy food of the seeds. Sown in spring, they come up in five or six weeks 
afterwards; with the exception of those of the A. campestre, which never 
come up till the second or third year. The seeds should not be covered with 
iDore tosn a quarter to half an inch of soil. The surface of the eround in 
wfaich they are sown may be advantageously shaded with leaves, fronds of 
ferns, heath, or straw.

When raised from seed, the plant will come into flower in 5 or 6 years ; 
and, in good soil, it will attain the height of 15 ft. in 10 yean. According to 

tome, it will thrive in a rooister soil than most others. In ornamental plAntft- 
tions, it is valuable on account of the earl^ expansion of its leaves, which 
appear before those of almost erery other kind of A'cet.

The tree, in general appeRrance, at a distance, b like the common sycamore; 
but, on a nearer anproacn, the leaves are found ofa smoother and finer texture. 
The roots extend considerably, both downwards and laterally. The bark is 
ftreen on the young :<hootB, but it aflenvards becomes ofa reddiah bronn, dotted 
with white points: that of the trunk is brown.and rather cracked. The buds 
are large and red in autumn, becoming of a still dariier red in the course of the 
winter : those on the points of the shoots are always the largest. The leavei 

are thin, green on both sides, end shining. When the petiole is broken, an acri^ 
milky sap issues from it, which coagulates with the ur. The ItMies are aliout

or kep, hive thdr wings jellow. It ia not till the tree has attained the age 
i/nearlf 40 years that it produces fertile seeds, though it will flower many

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 has a very singular effect when the leaves arc 

slightly ruffled by the wind, alternately appearing clothed in purple 

and in pale green. In spring, when .the leaves first expand, thtr 

purple bloom is less obvious than when they become matured, at 

which time it is very distinct.

diitinct in tbdr general aspect, when in bud, and when they have newly 
cmne into leaf; but aOer midKummer, when the leaves are nilly matured, 
and begin to get nisly, the trees are scarcely distinguishable. DiHerent 
plants also differ much in the time of their coming into leaf, and of drop- 
ping thor leaves ; and some of the more remarkable of these it might be 
worth while to propegste by e: " '" 


The growth of the common sycamore is very rapid compared with that of 
most oUcT species of ^'cer, particularly when it is in a deep, free, rich soil, 
•nd in a mild climate. It arrives iit its full growth in 60 or 60 years ; but it 
rMjuirra to be 80 or 100 years old before its wood arrives at perfection. In 
mnhy soil, or in drj sand, and even on chalk, the tree nei'er attains any size. 
It produces fertile seeds at the age of 20 years, but flowers neveral j-eara 
Honer ; sometimes even perfecting its seeds sooner also. The longevity of 
the tree is lh>m 140 to 800 years, though it ha-s been known of a much greater 
ife. The wood weighs per cubic foot, newly cut, 64 lb. i half-dry, 56 lb. i 
d^, 48 lb. It loses, in drying, about a twelfth part of its bulk. When the 
tree ii young, it is white ; but, as the tree gets older, the wood becomes a little 
yeOow, and often brown, especially towards the. heart. It is compact and 
firm, without being very hard ; of a fine grain, sometimes veined, susceptible 
of a high polish, and easily worked, either on the bench, or in the turning- 
litlM. It does not warp, and is not likely to be attacked bjr worms. It is 
nted in jtMiiery and turnery, and cabinet-making ; by musical instrument 
Miers ; for dder-pressea ; and, sometimes, for gun-Blocks. Formerly, when 
vouden dishes and spoons were more used than they are at present, it was 
BQch ra demand, especially in Scotland, by the manufacturers of these articles. 
Ai nndenrood, 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 80 years, or from that age to lOO. Aa an ornamental tree, it produces the 
htsl e^ct, either singly, of in groups of two or three, placed sufficiently near 
to form ■ whole, but uot so as to touch each other ; and in rows or avenues. 
The larieties with TBriegated leaves are very ornamental in (he beginning ol 
a 4 


Etunmer i but their leaves are almost alwavs more or leu imperfect, etpcciatlj 
oil the edges, and Tall olFmuch sooner in trie autumn tban those of the iipecies.

Naked young wood reddish brown. 

Branches slender, pendulous, and crooked ; 
often taking root, in the manner of those of 
many species of ^icus. Bark smooth ; green 
when young, white when fully grown. Leaf 
the length of the finger, upon rather a short 
footstalk, membranaceous, heart-shaped, with 
7 — 9 lobes, and 7 — ^9 nerves ; smooth above, 
except hairs in the axils of the nerves ; downy 
beneath, and in the axils of the nerves woolly: 
lobes ovate, acute, and acutely serrated ; the

of the petiole, and one extends to the tip of ^^ 
each lobe. Flowers of a middling size, in ^S] 
nodding eoryrobs, that are on long peduncles. 
( Hook. Fl. Bor. Amer.) This is a very marked 
and beautiful species; distinguishable, at sight, by the regular form of its 
leaves, and their pale reddish green colour. Though this fine tree has been 
in the country since 1826, it seems to have been comparatively neglected, for 
there is no good specimen that we know of in the neighbourhood of London. 
At High Clere, a thriving tree has ripened seeds for some years past ; so that 
there can be no doubt of its hardiness.

Varieties. There are several names in nurserymen's catalogues, such as A 
coccfneum, A. macrocarpum, A. floridum, A. Pavw which are only verv 
slight varieties of A. erioc4rpum. The last-named variety, introduced bv 
Messrs. Booth, has received the absurd name of Pavia. from the udd^ 
surface of the leaves being slightly wrinkled, somewhat in the manner of 
those of the horsechestnut As the species seeds freely, endless varieties 
may be obtained from seed beds.

Coroua, The red-flowered maple, whether we regard the boiuty of its flowers 
and opening leavcH in early spring, its red fruits in the beginning of summer, 
or its red fol'age in autumn, deserves to be considered one of the most orns- 
metital of hardy trees. Contrary to the general character of the maples, 
this species is said to thrive best in moist soil, which must, however, at the 
same lime, be rich ; and, for the tree to attain a large aize, the situation oueht 
to be sheltered. In Britain it is chiefly propagated by layers ; but, on the 
Continent, almost always by seeds, which ripen before midsummer, even 
sooner than those oY A. 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 from America vegetate 
in Europe

leaves having shorter footatalks, and 

being less dee[ily lobed. In a voung 

state, the leaves are often entire or 

nearly so. It is oflener seen sa a shrub

sepals bearded inside." {Tor. and Gray, i. p. 249.) A. opulif61ium given in our

tameoy a chestnut, is said by some to have been giren to this tree ironically, the nuts, though they 
hare the appearance of sweet chestnuts, being only fit for horses ; and by others, because it is said 
the nuts are used in Turkey, for curing horses of pulmonary diseases.

The common horsechestnut is invariably propagated by the nuts, which are 
sown when newly gathered, or in the following spring ; and in either case they 
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- 
chestnuts ; the remainder, to which some other names might be added, we 
consider as hybrids between i&^sculus and some kind of Pavia, most pro- 
bably P. flava.

A tree of the largest size, with an erect trunk, and a pyramidal head. The 
leaves are lai^e, of a deep green colour, and sinsularly interesting and beau- 
tiful when they are first developed. When enfolded in the bud, they are 
covered with pubescence, which falls off* 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

in the case of large plants on moist soil, for three months or longer, forming 
one of the greatest fioral ornaments of the shrubbery, at a season when rery 
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. 

Other Kinds of Potria. — Pdma. caiifomica {M, calif6mica iVi(<^.) has been 
described by Torrey and Gray, but is not yet introduced. P. Lyorm is in the 
Hort. Soc. Garden, but has not yet flowered there. We have omitted in this 
edition P. hfbrida, described by DeCandolIe as a truly intermediate plant be- 
tween P. rubra and P. fl^va, with yellow, white, and purple flowers ; because 
the only plant which we have seen bearing this name, that in the Hort. Soc. 
Gkirden, 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 diflTerent kinds of J^sculus and 
Pkvta 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 Pavta, are best perpetuated by budding or grzifting, and 
that collectors ought always to see that the plants they purchase have been 
worked. Pavta rubra as a tree, P. dfscolor either as a shrub or grafted standard 
high, and P. macrostachya as a shrub, ought to be in every collection, whether 
small or large. Pavia nQmilis, when grafted standard high ou the common 
horsechestnut, forms an ornament at once singular and bcautiiul. 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.

Varietie: The grape vine has been in cultivation from the remotett period of 

history, in the warmest parts of the temperate zones of the Old World. 

The varieties have been described at length by Du Hamel in France, Don 

Roxai de Clementi in Snain. and Sicklcr in Gennany. The varieties of the 

vine as a fruit shrub, and all that reUtes to thdr propagation and culture, 

will be found treated of m our EneycU^xtdia of Gardeimig ; and we shall

Towtn. In general the variegalioD of plants, more especially of treea and 
•hrubs, i« accompanied by a ragged, or otherwise unhealthy, appearance in 
the leaves j but the holly is one of the very few esceptiona to this rule. 
Tbe tarieeationa of the holly are chiefly confined to [he modification of 
white and yellow in the leaves: but there are some sorts in which the 
vination results from the stale of the leaves with reference to prickles, to 
nugnitude, and to fonn ; and others consist of difTerences in the colour 
of the fniit, which is red, yellow, or white, and black. These varieties are, 
fbr the moat part, without names, and those in the following groups ap- 
pear to ua to be all that are trulv distinct ; but the shades of difl^ence under 
each name in these groups are almost iniwinienible.

b. Vanetiet deiignaled from the Colovn of tie Leaf. 

Under the general name of van^ated hollies, twenty or thirty varieties, 
tome of them with, and some of them without, popular names, are obtainable 
in the principal London nurseries. Having examined and compared the 
diflbrent sbailea of variegation in the plants in the very complete collection 
of Mesm. Loddiges, we think they may be all included in the following 
groups; — 

t i. A. 16 dlbo-margaidtum Hort. — Leaves with white edges. Of this 
variety the subrarieties in I,oddiges's arboretum are marked 5, lb, 
IB, and 24, which hare all long and narrow leaves, with edgings of 
white or pale yellow along their margins ; and 4, 6, 7, IS, 17, 3E, 23, 
and 86, which have larger leaves, and a greater breiulth of margin 
variegated ; the white or pale yellow forming in some cases one 
third, or even one half, of the surface of the teul 

1 1. A, 17 aureo-margindlum Hort. — Leaves with jellow edges. The 
following subvarieties are in Messrs. Loddigeb'n arboretum, Nos. 19 . 
and 20 with dark yellow mar^ns; and Nos. 1. 2, 8, 9, 10. 13, and 
89, with mar^nsof dark and light yellow. Another subdividon of 
thix group consiita of plants with broad leaves, in what may be 
called a transitioD state from green to vari^ated, viz., with ereenish 
yellow or very pale green blotches or margins. When such plants 
become old, they are generally very distinctly variegated with yellow. 
Examples in the Hackney arboretum are Nos. 3, 20, and 21. 

t I. A. 18 albo-jActum Hort. — Leaves spotted with while. Tills variety 
hai a considerable portion of the centre of the disk of the leaf white. 
and of a somewhat transparent appearance; the edges of the disk 
of the leaf being green. 

1 I.A. \9 aurea-fActuBi Hort. — Leaves spotted with yellow. The fol- 
lowing subvarieties are in Messrs. Loddiges's arboretum. Nos. 1 1, 
H, 16, 26, 87, and 30. 

t I. A. saferox arehileum Hort. — Hie hedgehog holly with leaves 
blotched with wTiice. 

* L A. i\ Jerox-aitremtt Hort- — The bedgfjiog holly with leaves blotched 

with ydlow.

The holly mtkes the most impenelrable and the most durable of all vege- 


table fences ; and it has this great advantage over deciduous4eaved trees and 
shrubs, that it is seldom liable to be attacked by insects ; and, if shorn, the 
outer surface becomes impenetrable even to birds, who cannot build their nests 
in it. The wood is almost as white as ivory, except in the centre of very 
old trv»*ks, where it is somewhat brown. It is very hard, with a fine grain, 
8U8cef4ble of a high degree of polish, and is readily stained with black, green, 
blue, or red. It weighs, when dry, at the rate of 4*7 lb. 7 oz. per cubic foot. 
The veins of the wood, and its annual layers, are so small as scarcely to be 
perceptible. It is applied to a ^eat many purposes, in joinery, cabinet-making, 
and turnery; in engineering, m mathematical-instrument-making; and it is 
even used for wood-engraving. The bark afibrds 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 ^eeds, like those of the hawthorn, do not 
come up the first year, to save ground and the expense of weeding, the ber- 
ries 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 varieties 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-grafling does not succeed nearly so 
well with the holly as whip-grafting or budding. In England, the stocks 
budded or grafted on are generally of four or five years* growth ; and the 
grafting is effected in March, and the budding in July. The variegated kinds 
are also 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 forth roots the following 8|)ring. 
Holly hedges should never be clipped, because, when the leaves are cut 
throujzh the middle, they are rendered unsightly ; and the shoots should 
therefore be cut with a knife close to a leaf. The proper season for cutting 
would appear to be just after the leaves have attamed maturity ; because 
at that season, in the holly, as in the box, the wound is comparatively soon 
obliterated by the healing over produced by the still abundant sap.

But we can state nothing with certainty respectine them. In this genus, as

In habit of growth the spedes are all more or leas faetigiate, and send up 

laaaooM aucKers from the collari but, if these were removed, the plants 



would form neat miniature trees. Propagated by suckers, or by cuttings of 
the young wood in sand under a glass, or by seeds. Common soil, kept moist. 
There is a close general resemblance among all the deciduous species, which 
leads us to doubt whether they are any thing more than varieties.

be that figured in Lod. Bot, Cab., t. 450. 

The general aspect of* this plant is that of Plex DahoSn. It is a handsome 
shrub, well deserving a place m collections. 


Other Species of Prtnos. — P. d&bius 6. Don. and P. atomdrius 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 Prinoa ; 
two of which are deciduous, and the other evergreen. 


Ord. Char* Calyx 4*-^5-cleft ; aestivation valvate. Corolla of 4—5 petals ; 
in some absent. Petals cucullate, or convolute, inserted into the orifice of 
the calyx. Stamens 4—5, opposite the petals, perigynous. Ovary supe- 
rior, or half-superior, 2-, 3-, or 4-celled, surrounded by a fiesh v disk. Ovulet 
one in a cell, erect, as are the seeds. Frttit fleshy and indehiscent, or dry 
and separating into 3 divisions. — Trees or shrubs, often spiny, and generally 
dedduous. (Undl.) 

Leaves simple, alternate, very seldom opposite, with minute stipules^ 


decidoous or erergreen. FUnoen axillary or tenninal* — Chiefly natives of 
Europe or North America. 

They are ornamental in British gardens and shrubberies, chiefly from the tb- 
riety of their foliage, and from their berries ; but some of them, as Ceandthus, 
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 : — 

ZfzTPBus Toum. Petals 5. Styles 2 — 3. Fnut an ovoid mucilaginous dnipe. 

Nuts 1 — 3-celled. Seed compressed. A deciduous low tree or shrub. 
Paliu^rus Toum. Petals 5. Styles 3. Fruit dry, indehiscent, girded with 

a broad membranaceous wing, 3-celled. Seed ovate. Spiny shrubs.

duced in 1629. Flowersgreen, without any corolla; 
April to June. Berry bhick ; ripe in October. 

■ R. A. 2 balearica Hort. Par. The flhfimi 

— Leaves roundish. We take this as the first variety,: 

the species to be what is called R. 

J. latifolia, which is the commonest 

variety in British nuraeriei. 

» R. A. 3 Aupdniai Hint. Par. (Our Jig. 

246.) — Leaves ovate, a tittle toothed. 

■ R. A. 4 angtaHfiSa. R. Clitsii Willd. 

(Mill. Icon., t, 16. Bg. !. ; and our 

Jig. 947.]) Leaves long and narrow. — 

This variety is so dialinct, that it is by 

many authors considered as a species. 

It is of temarhably rapid erowth. 

There are two subvarieliea of it, the 

gold-striped, and the silver-striped ; 

both of remarkably free growth. 

• R. A. 5./S£uBaciJaJii.— Leaves blotched with yelh 

^ ■ R, A. ifiim aireU. — Leaves edged with yellow. 



' ii R. A. 7 folm argenteis, — This variety, nvhich is very conspicuous from 
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 Bridsh 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- 
pagated by cuttings, which are taken off in autumn, 
and planted in sandv 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

The young branches are furnished with " bright 
green sawed scales " as leaves ; they are placed o|)|)o- 
site, and at the base of each is a small stipule. The 
leaves and stipules speedily fall off, *' leaving the 
branches to act as leaves, by the aid of their soft par- 
ench^-ma, with which they are clothed in the form of 
bark." Hence, plants of any size appear one mass of 
naked spiny green branches in winter ; and, in summer, 
haviBg leaves and flowers all over the points of the 
branchlets. It is a most desirable addition to our 
evei^een shrubs; and, as it escaped the winter of 
1 837-8, it may be safely recommended as hardy, for cli- 
mates not much colder than that of London. It grows 
in common garden soil, in a dry situation, fully exposed 
to the sun. It has not yet been propagated otherwise 
than by Chilian seeds, which are frequently received 
under the name of Ketanilla. We have no doubt, 
however, that it might be increased by layers, or by

which are of a large siie in proportion to the branches. 

Gen, Char, Calyx with a subhemispherical tube, and 5 connivent segments. 
Petals 5, unguiculate, cucullate, deilexed. Stamens with ovate 2-celled an- 
thers. Disk spongy, annular. Ovary spherical, girded by the disk, 3-celled. 
Styles 3, diverging, terminated by small papilliform stigmas. Fruit tricoc- 
coiis, girded by the circumcised tube of the calyx. {DorCs MUl,) 

Leaves simple, alternate, stipulate, persistent or deciduous ; ovate or ellipti- 
cal, serrated or entire. Flowers terminal or axillary, in elongated racemes. 
— Shrubs, natives of North America, very ornamental in British gardens, 
and easily propai^ted by cuttings of the young wood, planted in sand, and 
covered with a hand-glass. Most of the species proKduce seeds fireely in 
British gardens, and they all grow in any common garden soil.

■ ■ .4. M. ZfoUu variegaHt. — The veriegDted-leaved Macqui Aristotelia. 

In Chili this plant forms an erei^een shrub, with diffuse branches, growing 
to the height of 6 h. The flowers are not very showy j but they are succeeded 
bi beniea about the siie of a pea, Tery dark purple, and at length becoming 
Mck, which are acid and ea^le. In British gardeni, it forms a sub-ever- 



green slirub or low tree, of very vigorous growth ; so rauch so, in a young 
state, that, from the shoots not being matured, they are frequently killed down 
to the ground, and the 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- 
pagated by cuttings or by layers.

of the aiie ; the leaflets are, also, lanceolate, instead of 
boi^ Bubovale. The red hue of the branches, e^pe- 
ciaUy when young, is very beautiful ; and the leaves are 



also more or less tinged with red. The fruit is round, not succulent, and 
somewhat furrowed ; at first green, and afterwards reddish ; but black, or of a 
very dark blue, when ripe. The leaves and flowers emit a very resinous odour, 
which spreads to a considerable distance, more especially at sunset, when 
the dew is falling, after a very warm day. The substance called Venice 
or Chian turpentine is the resin which exudes from this tree. In British 
gardens, the tree is not very common, though it is generally considered as the 
hardiest of the genus; and, with P. vbxi, may be planted in warm sheltered 
situations in the open border.

whence, and probably also 

from the crookedness of the 

branches, the cominun name. 

The cellular tissue of the wood 

is of an orange colour, with a 

strong aromatic odour, and a 

copious resinous juice. The 

leaves are 2 ft. to 3 ft. long, and 

they are very conspicuous in 

autumn, before th^ drop off*, 

when they chan-ie to n purplish 

oryellowish red. "Hie flowers 

are produced in close spikes at <j 

the ends of the branches ; they ' 

are often polygHmous or di- 

(Bcious by ubortinn, and the "'■ »>ii' ■ii>w>>^ 

female ones are followed by seeds enclosed in woolly, simple, succulent covers. 

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

never be placed where it is intenileil to act an a screen. Like all objects the 

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

effect when standing alune on a lawn.

Gen, Char, Calyx persistent, with 4 — 5 segments. Corolla of 4—^5 concave 
petals. Sexes monoeciously polygamous. Stamens 8 — 10, inserted under a 
pitcher-shaped calycine disk, which has as many sinuses and as many teeth 
as there are stamens : these are opposite the sinuses, half of them opposite 
the petals, and half alternate with them. Anthers in the fruit-bearing flowers 
barren. Ovary conical. Styles 3 — 4>. Stigmas capitate. Fruit a globose 
drupe, with a leathery nut. — Chilian trees and shrubs, becoming spiny as 
they advance in growth. (Dec, Prod.) 

Leaves simple, alternate, exstipulate, evergreen ; generally oblonff or 
ovate, toothed, small. Flowers in axillary racemes, greenish yellow. — There 
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 sfiecies of Duvaua, when thrown upon water, move about in a manner 
which may be com|3ared to a fleet of ships employed in manceuvring, or to 
persons engaged in dancing. Seeds have been produced plentifully in the 
Hort. Soc. Garden by D. dep^ndens, trained to a south wall : and seeds of 
D. latifblia are often imported from Chili. Cuttings of the ripe wood root 
in sand, under a bell-glass, in a gentle heat. D. depcndens 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. ovata was not injured at all, and maybe 
considered as an evergreen shrub, as hardy in the climate of London as Aris-

" Whatever," observes Dr. Lindley, " may be 
thou^t" of the distinctness, as species, " of O. 
ovaia and D. dependens, there can be no doubt 
tku D. latifolia is a totally distinct species ; for 
not only are the leaves, in their outline, surface, 
tod colour, and the whole plant in its habit, very 
[hKrent, but we find it maintain all its peculiarities 
nochanged when raised from seeds." "•■ ii""i«i"ift"t 

UiktT Specia of DtiTa<i9.—D. denldta Dec., Schinus dentata Sol. Rep., was 
introduced in 1795, and is doubtless as hardy as any of the above kinds ; since 
)ll of them are safest when planted against a wall. Duvaua tinuAla Lindl, 
appears equally hardy with D. dependena in the Hort. Soc. (iarden. It diSera 
fbin the others in producing the flowers before the leaves, and in being deci- 
dwjus. All the species well deserve culture as evergreen bushes, in Rhrubberien 
■bere the soil is dry and sandy, the situation sheltered, and the surface sloping 
to the south. A coocurrence of circumstances of this kind is not unfi^quenl 
Id country residences, both in England and Scotland ; and two examples which 
occur to us at the moment we are writing are. Bury Hill in Surrey, and Blair 
DnipunoDd in Stirlingshire. 



Obd, Char, Calyx with 5 divisions, either partitions, teeth, or dcfts, the odd 
one anterior to the axis of inflorescence. FruU 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. Stipules 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 Le^uminaceae 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 Robinia, Cy'tisus, 
Wistaria, Genista, CTlex, Am6rpha, Halimod^ndron, ^Icacia, Oleditschia, 
Cercis, and various others. It also contains some considerable trees, which 
belong to the genera Robinia, Gleditschio, Sophora, &c. The senera con- 
taining hardy 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.

cultivating as an ornamental plant. 
t S. j. 3 pendida Hort., and the plate of this tree in our 1st edit. 
ToL v., has pendulous shoots, and is a very remaricable variety. 
Grafteid near the ground, the shoots run along the surface, like those 
of a trailing plant, to a very great distance from the main stem ; in 
t!Ood soil, a shoot extending itself 6 or H feet in one season. 
Grafted at the height of 10 or 20 feet or upwards, the shoots hang 
down, and form one of the most ornamental of pendulous trees, 
both in summer and winter. 

A round-headed tree, readily distinguished in winter by the fine, smooth, 
dark green bark of its young wood and imatler branches ; and, in summer, by 
the dark blue green of its foliage. In deep free soil, it grows with great rs- 
pidity, seedlings attaining the lieipht of 10 or 12 feet in 4 or 5 years ; and 
in 20 or 30 years, in the ndghbourhood of London, 30 or 40 feet. There are 
large specimens in England, which flower freely; but they have never yet 
ripenecf seeds : indeed, the tree ripens seeds ui France only in the very 
wannest seasons. The wood is very hard and compact, as much so, it is said, 
as that of the box. The bark exhales a strong odour, which, it is stated in 
the Nouveau Da Hamel, produces irolic and purging on those who prune the

be koown of the uses of the tree in Cbioa and Japan : but it is sud that the 
fruit a employed to dye a fine yellow ; and the Sowers for dyeing a yellow of 
BO Huperior a hue, that it is exclusively rexenred for dyeing stulTii to be worn 
by the members of the imperial rBmily. None of the artioreouij L^uminicete 
ire eijual to this tree in beauty of foliage and bark. Its flowers, when they 
ire produced, are lUo iu large terminal compound ipikes, and Tery con- 
•picuous, though much smaJler than those of uie Robtnia viscosa. One re- 
markable propertj in the foliage of the aophora is, that the very hottest and 
diieat seasons do not turn it pale, or cause it to drop off, as heat does that of 
most of the other pinnated-ietiTed L^umink;es. The pendulous variety is 
well deserving of culture as an object of ■inguiarity and beauty; and, wh^re 
it is desired to cover a surface with intense green foliage during summer, lor 
exBDiple, a dry hillock, a plant of this variety, nluced on the ccutre, will ac- 
complish the purpose eflectually. The tree will thrive in any free soil ; but, 
ia cold climates, it ought to be placed in one rather poor and dry tiial it may 
be compelled to make shorter shoots; which, of course, being le!K succulent, 
are more easily ripened. It is generally propagated by seeds imported from 
France : but, where it is desired to have trees tliat will soon come into (lower, 
seedling plants should be grafted with scions from a flowering tree. It will 
grow by cuttings, more etpecially of the roots, and also by layers.

larger than those of the Rohlnia 'Bseiidt-Acirm, but not ao odoriferous. The 

seeds are like those of the robinia, and, in America, ripen about the middle 

of August. In Britain, the tree has flowered in the Chelsea Botanic Gar- 
den, and at Ilylands in Essex, but has not yet produced pods. An open wj 
situation is desirable, in order that the tree may ripen its wood; and, to &- 
cilitatc the same. purpose where the climate is cold, the soil ought to be dry 
rather than rich. In the London nurseries, it is propagated chiefly by Ame- 
rican seeds, but it vrill doubtless grow by cuttings of the roots.

U. prorweialii and \f, ilricia are probably only varieties of U. eu< 

mpn'a, but, as they m:iy iHiasibly beloiiii to U. nuna, we have kept them 

distinct, and treated tbu:ii as botanical species 01 

The common furze, in Caernarvonshire, grows 

lo the height of IJUOft. above the sea, in open, 

airy, warm situations ; but in damp shaded valleys, 

not hi^lier than 600 ft. 

In the North of Enf 

land,accordingto Winch, 

it forms fine fox covers 

at 800 or UOO feet ; and 

grows, in warm sheltered 

situations, at £000 (t. 

k At Inverness, it is found 

to the height oflldOtt. 

About Tongue, in the 

north -west of Suiher- 

.laturalised, it scarcely i 

bruised, and given lo cattle and horses in a green 
nutritive as fodder; and for this purpose the variety 
ferabic, on account of the absence of prickles. The i 
is chiefly desirable in situations where the hawthorn 
thrive; because the furze is not a plant of long dun 
young trees, it is sometimes sown where acorns, beei h 1 
to be sown, or young trees are to be planted. The 
state is chiefly as fuel for bakers' ovens, for brick, tile, 
lighting hres. In Scotland, it is sometimes used 

iduced, but is now 

IS 350 h. of elevation. Thq young branches,

BfitB, or chestnuts are 
ie of furze in a dead

ilns for drying oats. 
In England, a common use of it is to weave into the sides of hovels for 
sheltering cattle, to prevent them Irom rubbing against them. In gardens, 
the points of the shoots are chopped into pieces of about I in. in length, and 
dropped into the drills in which peas are sown, before the seeds are covered ; 
and, the earth being drawn over them and trod down, they are found ell't.'ctu- 
alJy to rcaint the attacks of mice and small birds. In Fmnce, the chopped 
brunches are mixed with cow-dung, and the mixture aJVerwards lormi^d into 
bricks, which are dried in the sun, and used as fuel. The seeds, if they could 
be procured in sufficient quantity, would, if eround into Hower, form u nutri- 
tive food both for tattle and swine : they retiun their vital pniperty for several 
years. In Britany, large heaps are formed of alternate layers of turf and 
dricdfnrze branches; and, the whole being set lire to, the ashes are preserved 
as manure. In many porta of both France and England, the ashes of dry 
furze branches are used as a lye for washing linen. A pound of seeds, which,

Kscovcred 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 ft. 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 differing from UHex nkaa chiefly in the 
spines branching into two small ones at the sides. It was introduced in 1823 ; 
and grows to the height of 1 fl. to 2 ft. It is rather tender in the climate of 
London, but sometimes stands the winter among rock work.

Olier Specie! of Genula. — Q.ipinota, in the Ilort. Soc Garden, is a young 
plant with trifoliolaCe leaves, and the side shoots terminating in spines. There 
•re Tirious otha names in collections, and a greet many in books ; l)uC the 
whole genus is in such a state of conruaion, that nothing can be determined 
with certainty respecting the species, till tbey are all collected together and 
cultivated in the same ^rdeu and examined.

G™ C*ar. Co/hj bilabiate- Upper Lip usually entire ; lower one somewhat 
tiidcntate. Vexillum ovate, large. Carina very obtuse, includini; the Kta- 
■nensand pistils, ^foinnu monadelphous. Legumf comuresseil, many -seeded, 
glandless. (DohU AfiU.) 

Leavei trifoliolate, alternate, stipulate. Flaaieri o( nearly all the species 
yellow. — Dedduoul or sub-evererecn shrubs of short duration, or low trees ; 
natives chiefly oT the Middle and South of Europe. 

All the species have triroliolale leaves, and the flowers are for the most part 
yellow. The shrubs have the habit of Genista or of 5pirtium, to both which 
genera they are nearly allied. They are all ornamental, some of them eminently 
to ; and those which have th«r flowers in terminal racemes are decidedly more 
elegant than those which have them in close terminal, or in axillary heads. 
The wood of the laburnum is valuable in turnery and cabinet-work. All the 
•pedes produce seeds in abundance, by which they are almost exclusively 
pti^agaled. The spedes recorded in books are numerous ; but, if they were 
all brought together, and cultivated io the same garden, we question much if 
a tjdie uf them would be found spedfically distinct.

A very handsome shrub, more especially when covered 

with its white flowers in May, and when surrounded by 

hundreds of bees, busily occupied in extracting the honey. ^ 

In giiod soil, it is of very rapid growth, attaining the height 

of 5 or 6 feet in 3 or 4 years ; and, in 6 or 8 years, growing 

as high as 15 or even 90 fee i, if in a ahellered situation. 

Placed by itself on a lawn, it forms a singularly omamenial 

plant, even when not in flower, bv the varied disposition 

and tufling of its twiji^y thread-like branches. When ir 

flower, it is one of the finest ornaments of the garden 

Trained to a single stem, its effect is increased ; and, grafted ' 

on the l^umum, a common practice about Paris, it forms 

a very remarkable combination of beauty and singularity. '

as was at first supposed, but a sport from a bud ol C'^tisus pur< 
pureus iiuerted in C. slpinus,in 1825, by D. Adam, a nurseryman at 
Vilry, near Paris. The flowers are of a reddish purple, slightly 
tinged with bu^ and are produced in pendent Epikes, 8 in. or more 
long. A few years after this sport was originated, it was found that 
it had a strong tendeacy to return to the original kinds ; and that 
from one bud or graft, branches were produced of the true Cytisus 
purpiireus, of the true Xaburoum (either the A Ipine or the common.

according to which of these may have heen 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., 
vol. XV. p. 122.; and Arb, Brit., Ist edit., p. 590.) It is a very vi- 
gorous, and somewhat erect and fastigiate, growing variety, having 
produced shoots from 6 ft. to 9 ft. long in one season ; but, though it 
has been highly spoken of by some cultivators, in point of beauty, it 
cannot be recommended. 
2 C. (L.) a. 4 Jragrant Hort. — Blossoms fragrant. There are plants 
in the Hackney Arboretum. 

^Gller recognised C. Laburnum and C. alplnus as species; but Linnaeus 
did not. Whether they are species or varieties, they are cert^unly very dis- 
tinct ; as much so, perhaps, as the Qu^rcus i26bur pedunculatum, and Q. R* 
sessiliflonim, and like these two oaks they come tnie 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. alpinus above 
40 ft. higbj and some at Alnwick Castle with trunks 3 ft. in diameter. The 
beart-wood of the laburnum is of a dark colour ; and, thoueh of rather a 
coarsegrain, it is very hard and durable : it will take a polish, and may be 
node to resemble ebony. A cubic foot weighs 52 lb. 1 1 oz. in a dried state. 
The colour and grain m the heart-wood vary much, according to the soil, and 
tbe age of the tree. It is darkest in the C. Xab6rnum, when grown on poor 
calcareous soil ; and lightest in the C. (Xr.) alpinus, when grown in deep rich 
soil : in which last case its colour is a sort of greenish black. It is in much 
demand among turners and cabinet-makers. The ordinary use of the wood in 
tbe 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 
^T 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, yet they will spring up again the next season, 
and thus yield a r^ular supply of winter's food for these kinds of game. As 
an ornamental tree, the laburnum has few rivals. The shape of the head is 
irregular and picturesque ; its foliage is of a smooth, shining, and beautiful 
^reen ; and, wnat is a great recommendation to every ornamental plant, it is 
not Uable 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 large 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 high 
vinds ; but, for the same reason, it is less injurious to plants growing near it, 
tban 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, (L.) alpinus will grow to the height of from 35 ft. to 45 ft. Both 
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 lit to gather in October ; and they may 
be kept in the ]x>d, in a dry airy loft, till the March following, when they 
should be sown in beds of light soil, at about an inch apart every way, and 
covered about half an inch or three quarters of an inch thick. Half the plants 
which come up will be fit for transplanting into nursery lines in the November

Other Speaa ofCyluui. — This genus, in British gardens, ia in such a state^f 
confusion, that nothing can be done in it satiEfactorily till all the kinds are 
collected together, and cultivated for two or three years till Ibey show their 
Sowers and fruit. Perhaps two thirds of the alleged species in the London 
gardens are only varieties. In the mean time, all that a cultirHtor can do is lo 

Erocure as many kinds as he can; and in the collection of Messrs. Loddiges 
e will find the greater Duml)er of those above described, though some of them 
have been killed by the winter of 1937-8. Among the species probably hardy, 
by &r the handsomest in point of foliage is the C. irdiicat Ouss. (Bot. Reg. 
(. 190^., and ourj^. 366.) 
It is a tall, very hoary 
shrub. A native ut' Stroin- 

^ pubescent, yellow, cam- 

[lanulate, end the young

k the appearance, Dr. Lind- 
ley observes, of being a"

Ctriflorus. (See Arb. Br.,

■ome shrub, of moderately robust habit; a native of the Peak of Teneri&e. 
Height 3 ft. to 4 ft. Introduced in 1835. The flowers are terminal, in a 
apike about 6 in. In length, and of a bright yellow. There were plants in the 
Epsom Nursery in 1838. Many other species of C^tisua are described by 
authors, for which we refer to Don's MitJgr, Webb's Her Hitpatuauc, Bois- 
Aef» EUnehiu Planiarum, Duby and DeCandoUe's Botaniam Galticum, and 
the first edition of this Arboretum. Many genera of ligneous plants require to 
be cultivated together, in the same garden, in order to settle their nomen- 
clature: but while some of these, as Quercus, i^nus, &c., would consume the 
greater part of a lifetime in procuring them from the different quarters of the 
world, and wailing till they came into flower, the genera Gentsts, Cytisus, 
and Adeuocirpus are almost ekclusively European, and might be collected in 
tbc course of one year ; while, in three years after the seed* were sown, the 
plants would in most cases come into flower. It is surprising, therefore, that 
tome amateur of leisure doea not undertake their arrangement.

A most beautiful species when in flower ; but, when out of flower, of a gloomy 
ashy hue. The trunk is disBgured 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. hisp4nicus, but, according to Mr. Webb, it is " very entirely distinct." Plants 
are, or soon will be, in the Milford Nursery.

of their leaves, and more especially of their long apikes of flowers ; which, 
though, when taken separately, they are small, and imperfect in regard to 
form, are yet rich from their number, and their colours of purple or violet, 
spangled with a golden yellow. The plants are not of long duration ; and are 
liable to be broken by wind; fur which reason they onglit always to be

Leaves compound, unequally pinnate, alternate, deciduous ; leaflets 
generally ovate or obovate, petiolate. Flouters 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 readily 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 brittle : 
they grow rapidly, but are generally not of long duration. Their rapid growth 
is a property that they have in common with all trees and plants the principal 
roots ot which extend themselves close under the surface ; because tnere 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 
exbaost all the soil within their reach. They are, therefore, nighly objec- 
tionable among ornamental shrubs, or in flower borders. For this reason, 
also, such trees are objectionable as hedgerow trees, or as scattered groups in 
arable lands ; their roots provins a serious impediment to the plough, and the 
suckers thrown up by them choking the com crops. Roots, on the other 
hand, which |>enetrate perpendicularly as well as horizontally, belong to more 
slowly, but more steadily, crowing trees, which always attain a larger size in 
proportion to the extent of ground they occupy.

DniMhom, This tree, when first introduced, was supposed to be a species of the Egyptian acacia, 
( Jcida Tira), from Its pricklj branches and pinnated learei, which resembled those of that tree. 
It was named the locust tree by the missionaries, who fanded that It was the tree that supported 
St. John in the wilderness. It is not, howerer, a nadve of any other part of the world than North 
America. The name Carouge is the French word for carob bean, the locust tree of Spain ; which, 
bdag also a natire of Syria, is, probably, the true locust of the New Testament. The German 
name of Schotendom Is composed of sckote^ a pod, or legume, and dom^ a thorn.

Calalogae for 18^9. 
Most of these varieties are tolerably distinct in the foliage when the ptantn 
arc young. Those best worth cultivatiiur, for the shape of the tree, are R. 
P. umbraculffera, the parasol acacia; R. P. p^ndula; R. P. scrtcto, the 
upright. growing sort i and R. P. spectibilis. With regard to the yellow- 
flowered variety, it ma^ be worth continuing by grafting or suckers ; but, to 
makequitesureofhavinK white flowers, the trees producing them ought to be 
propagated by grafting also ; as plants raised from seed, though lor ue most 
part tney 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 
di'al of strength, and is very durable ; but it has not much elasticity, and ia 
somewhat liable to crack. A cubic foot of locust wood, newly cut, weighs

oak, the ctieitnut, the beech, the elm, and most other trees, does nut bc^n to 
chan^ into heart, or perfect, wood, till after 10 or 15 vcars' growth. Tlie trees of 
this qjecies, and of several of its varieties, in the garden of the Horticultural So- 
ciety, and in the arboretum of Messrs. Loddigea, have attained the height of 3011- 
and upwards, in 10 years Iroiii [he time they were planted. There is, pcrhnps, no 
American tree respecting which so much has been said and done, in Europe, as 
the locust. It va.1 one of the first trees that we received from America, and 
ithas been more eitenaively propagated than any other, both in France and Eng- 
land- It has been alternately extolled itnd neglected in both countries ; and even 
■t the present tine, though the beauty of its foliage and flowers la ^crally ac- 
knowledged, and thou^ it ha.i, at diHerent periods, been enthusisHticully praised 
by different writers, for the valuable properties of iia wood, it cannot ^e con- 
luiered as holding a high rank as a timber tree, or as being worth planting with 
■ riew to profit. We |jasa over many cuiious and historical facts respecting the 
kicuat tree, for which we refer to toe lat edit, of this work, and come to the 
yew 1823, when an extraordinary sensation was excited in Britain respectiiig 
this tree by Cobbett. This writer, while in America, from 1817 to 1819, "ira« 
tociTinced 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 Ihia tree, being, before 
Cobbett's time, almost forgotten it) England, man^ persons, in consequence, 
thought it was a new tree. Hence, while quantities of plants of Kobinia 
Pseud-zlc^in stood unasked for in the nurseries, the locust, which every one 
believed could only be had genuine from Mr. Cobbett, could not be grown by 
hifii in sufficient quantities to supply the demand. Alier creating a prodigious 
' m for a few years, the locust mania entirely subsided, and tne tree ia 
it waa before Cobbett's lime, planted only, or chiefly, lor ornament.

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

Ist edit., Tol. v., has the leaflets large, and ovate-roundish ; and the 
branches and peduncles glabrous, and without prickles. 

The speciesy 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 Pseud-^cacia. They form singularly ornamental shrubs 
for gardens ; but, as standards or bushes, they can be only planted with safety 
in the most sheltered situations. 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. h. macroph/Ila in point of brilliant display.

cotyecture that there are, probably, not more than two species, the American

The trunk and branches, when the tree is young, are covered with laisc 

prickles, which, though they are not ligneous, become hard, and remain on lor 

several years, and offcrr 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, uiid the branches proceed from it rather 

horizontally than in an upright direction. The pinnated foliage is particulurly 

elegant, and of sn agreeable light shining green : it appears late in sprinu, the 

trees in the neighbourhood ol' London sometimes not beuig fully clothed till 

the middle or end of June; and it begins to turn yellow, and drop oiT, early 

in autumn. The flowers are inconspicuous t the male flowers being in the 

form of catkin-like racemes of nearly the same colour as the Iciives. Some 

trees in the grounds at Syoa have ripened seeds, the pods containing which, 

being 1 ft. to 2 ft. in length, and remaining on the trees after the leaves are oB', 

have a singular appearance. These crooked pendulous pods are of a reddiith 

XXV. leoumima'cx^: gledi'tschu. 

brown colour j , 

■ubstance, which, for about a month nfLer the maturity of the 
very sweet, but after a few weeks becomes eitremel; sour. The rate of 
growth of thia tree, for the hnt 15 or 20 jieBrB, ia generally about ihe Bvtrnge 
of a foot a year ; but in favourable situations it will grow at double that rate. 
In the garden of the Hurt. Soc, and in the arboretum of the Messrs, Lod> 
diges, plants lOyears planted were, in 1835, from SO ft. to S5fi. in height. 
The wood of this tree, when dry, weighs at the rate of 5E lb. the cubic foot : 
it u Tcry hard, and eplita with great facility, resembling in this and other rc- 
ipects the wood of the robinia ; but its grain is coarser, and its pores more 
open. In Britain, this, and all the kinds of the )renus, can only be considered 
as omamentul treeii; but in that cliaracler they hold (he first ; their de- 
licate acacia-like foliaiie, and the singularly varied, ^racefid, and picturesque 
forms assumed by (he tree, more especially when youn;; or middle-aged, to- 
cher with the singular feature aSbrded by its spines, will always recommend 
It in omamenia! plantations. It requires a deep, rich, free soil, and a situation 
not eiposed to high winds ; and it requires the South of England or France 
to ripen the seeds. The species is alwajs propagated by seeds imported from 
America, or from France or Italy. The plants are best transplanted to where 
they are finally to remain when quite young ) as they make but few fibrous 
roots, and these take, tor the most part, a descending direction. The variety 
ti. (. incrmis can only be insured by grafting on the species. In general, how- 
ever, abundance of plants without spines may be sefected from beds of seed- 
lings of G. triadintbos.

pearance of buds ; and this latter circumstance, connected with the former, 
gives the tree, during winter, the appearance of being dead ; and hence thu 
Canadian name of chicot, or stump tree. The leaves, on young thriving trees, 
are 3 ft. 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 rapidly 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 
coffee in Kentucky and Tennessee; but their use in this way has been long 
once discontinued. The pods, preserved like those of the tamarind (to which 


this genua it nearly tllied), are said to be wholesome, uui slightly aperieni. 
Id Britain, the only use of the tree is for ornamental purposes j aoil, con- 
sidered as an object of curiosity and beauty, no collection ought to be without 
it. A rich, deep, free Boil ij estentiul to the thriving of this tree; and such* 
soil is never met vith naturally in exposed situations. The tree is geoerally 
propagBled by imported seeds ; but it will grow freely from cuttings of the 
roots, care being taken in plunting to keep that end upwards which is na- 
turally «o.

flowered in the Botanic Garden at Kew; has numerous flowers,

and they also appear about a fortnight later; but it is, perhaps, 
hardly worth noticing as t variety. 

Tlie common Judas tree, in the South of Europe, fornis a handsome low 
tree, with a flat spreading head, in the form of n parasol ; and it is a aingiilm-iv 


beautiful olgect in spring, etnecielly when it U covered with iis numeioua bi 
purplish ]nnL flowers, which ...... . . 

' ' the yoiins wood, b 
runk. lae leaves 
flowers are succeeded by flat, thin, brown pods, nearly 6 in. in length, w 
remain on the tree all the year, and give it a very singular appearance in the 
winter aea^on. The rate of growth is about 16 in. a year, fiir the first 10 jean. 
The wood ii very hard, and agreeably veined, or raiher blotched or waved, 
with black, green, and yellow spots, on a grey ground. It takes a beautifiil 
polish, and weicha nearly 48 lb. to the cubic foot. The flowt'r.s, which have 
an agreeable acid taste, are mixed with salada, or fried with batter, as (Htters ; 
and the flower-buds are pickled in vinegar. In British gardens, the tree growl 
about the same height, and flowErs about the same dme, as the laburnum, the 
Ouelder rose, and the hawthorn, and enters into beautiful combination with 
these and other treen. The foliage is hardly less beautiful and remarkable than 
the flowers ; the leaves being of a pale bluish green on the upper surface i and 
of a seB'Kreen underneath, aiid of a cordate reniform shape, apparently con- 
sisting ol two leaflets joined together; which circumstance, combined with 
others, brings the genus in close alliance with that of BauhSntiT. Like most of 
the Legumin^eK, this tree prefers a deep, free, sandy soil, rich rather than 
poor; and it will only thrive, and become a handsome tree, in sheltered situa- 
tions. In the northern parts of the island, it requires to be planted against a 
wall ; and few ornamental treea better deserve such a situation. The species 
is propagated by seeds, and the varieties by gralUng. The seeds are sown on 
heat early in spring, and come up the same season i and the plants will produce 
dowers in three or four years.

spec. Char., S^. Leaves acuminate, villose beneath at the axils of the veins. 
As compared with C, j^iliquastram, its flowers are of a paler rose colour, 
the l^me is on a longer pedicel, and tipped with a longer style. A low 
tree. Canada to Virginia. {Dec, Prod,) Height 10 ft. to 80ft. lutrod. 1730. 
Flowers red ; May and June. ; Legume brown ; ripe in August. 


t C. c. pubescent Ph. — Leaves pubescent on the under surface. (Dec") 

This tree bears a general resemblance to the preceding species ; but it is 
more slender and smaller in all its parts ; and it seldom rises higher than 20 
feet It is at once distinguished from C <^iliqu&8trum by its leaves being 
heart-shaped and pointed ; they are also much thinner, more veined, and of a 
lighter green ; and the flowers are generally produced in smaller numbers 
than in the other species. The flowers are used by the French Canadians in 
nlads and pickles, and the young branches to dye wool of a nankeen colour. 
The wood resembles that of the other species. Propagated by imported 
seeds, and considered more tender than C. jS^iliqu&strum. 


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

Ord, Char. Flowers regular. Calyx, in most cases, with 5 lobes, the odd one 
posterior to the axis of inflorescence. Petals and stamens arising from the 
calyx. Stamens, for the most part, numerous. Ovaries many, several, or 
solitary ; each of one cell that includes, in most cases, 1 ovule ; in some, 
I to many ovules. Stifle lateral or terminal. 
* Leaves simple, or pinnately divided, alternate, in nearly all stipulate. 
Flowers showy, with numerous stamens. Frttit, 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 
phioi, the cherry, the apricot, the peach, and the nectarine. The plants are, 
for. the most part, deciduous 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 Asia ; 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 ctvilisatioD, and are, perhaps, better known to mankind in general than any 
other ligneous plants. The medical properties of several of the species are 
remarkable, Irom the circumstance of their 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 Leguminacem. The bark of some 
species, as of Cerasus virginiana, is used, in North America, as a febrifuge ; 
and that of others, as the capoUin cherry (Cerasus Capollm), for tannmg, 
ia Mexico. The leaves of Oatsegus Oxyacantha, Prunus spindsa, Cerasus 
sylvestris, and jRdsa rubigin68a, have been used as a substitute fojr tea, or for 
adulterating tea. The leaves and bark of the spiraeas are said to be at once 
tttringent 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 
nnedes difiering, in many cases, more from one another, than they diifer 
from other species ; and the second is, that they are remarkably subject to 

8 2 


the attacks of insects and diseasea. Tliey almost all require a free loamy wil, 
not overcharged with moi.sture, and ricli rather than poor ; and, while all the 
species are increa^^eil by seeds, which. Tor the most part, are produced freely in 
Britain, or by cuttings of the roots, almost all the varieties are best increased 
by grafting or budding; and not, as in some other orders, with equal ease by 
cuttings of the shoots, or by layers. 

With reference to tandscape^^rdening, 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 targe size ; tid, they attain their natural size 
and shape in a very few jtars, in good soil not requiring more than from 
10 to 20 years; and 3d, they sooner take the cbaraeter of old trees than the 
trees of any other natural order of ligneous plants. A few eiiceptions may be 
taken from different orders, such as the common field maple, the common 
laburnum, &c. ; but wc know of no natural order, in which, like the Aosacex, 
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 large, 
and at the same time to combine character of form with beautiful blossoms 
in spring, and showy (Cratas'gus, Cotoneister, and AitKlanchitrr) or usefiil 
(PyruB and Prunu?) fruit in autumn.

with fine, long, witltvv-like, glossy, serrate leaves ; .- 
on account of which, and its upright bslHt of 'k 
growth, the latter being different from that of all 
the other species and varieties of almond, it is va- 
luable in every collection where variety of cha- 
racter is desired. U. S.

Other Varieties. The almond, considered as a fruit tree, has given rise to 
some other varieties, which will be found treated of at length in French works

There are several 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 for 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 Quercus hisp&nica, which, in Spain, though it gene- 
rally bears sweet and edible acorns, yet sometimes produces only such as are 
bitter. For this reason, in the case of the almond, instead of giving one form 
as the species, 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 the varieties.

Very striking, from the hoary, or rather silvery, 
appearance of its leaves ; and it makes a hand- 
some plant when budded standard high on the 
common almond or the plum. It flowers much less freely than the common 
almond ; notwithstanding which, it well deserves a place in collections, on 
account of its fine silvery foliage.

Ttie peach and the nectarine are by some botanists made distinct Kpecieii 
but there can be no doubt of their being only varieties ol' one kind, which 
kind ill itaeir nothing more then an improved or fleshy almond ; the almond 
being to the peach and nectarine what the crab is to the apple, and the slue to 
the plum.

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, m consequence of being &rther re- 
moved from their aboriginal state, they are of slower growth, form trees of less 
aze« and are of shorter duration. The nectarine, as a standard in the open 
frardeo, 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 ^neral cultivation throughout the 
temperate regions of the globe, distinguished at first sight from the almond, 
peach, and nectarine, by its heart*shaped, smooth, shimnff leaves, and white 
flowers. There are several wild varieties, bearing flowers ofdifferent shades of 
pink, chiefly cultivated as omamentaL 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.

dindron dailricitm ; growing on the south sides of the mountains, while the 
latter grows on the north sides. When both these plants are in ttover, 
Pallas observes, the north sides of the mouniaiiis appear of a puqde colour, 
and the south of a rose colour. (Fi. Ron., i. p. 13.) In British gardens, the 
Siberian apricot forms s tree of neaily the same height as the common apricot, 
of which it appears to us to be the wild form.
