tani8t*8 Repository under the name of J. gracile. We find 
it observed here, that * the geniculated aiMl elbowed petiole 
of this plant, not obeerved in any other gpecies of Jasmine^ 
was thought the iqest el^le chanusler to derive the wpe- 
dfic name from :* and again, that ' Fontar has made men^ 
tion of a spedes of Jasmine nder the name of Jasmiiiom 
shnpUdfoUum^ which however cannot be the same irtth J. 
gctiiculahm, dnoe that learned botanist coold not have 
silently passed over a character whidi so essentially dlitu^ 
guishes the latter spedes ; besides thai the name of mmfJi 
c^cUum is applicable to several roedes of this ^nns.* On 
these passages we have to remanCj that Forsters spedes ia 
certainly qmte dlsdnct from the one here described, but it 
equally furnished with gemculated petioles, although he 
has taken no notice of them. As to the name of ahnplici- 
foliunif it may be observed, that at the time when Foreter 
described his plant, it was the only Jasmine with simple 
leaves known to him, for J. Sambac was then referred to 
NvcTANTHEs. At prescut this name is certainly inappli- 
cable ; but the same may be said of that given by Ventenat 
to the species here figured and described ; for, though no 
mention is made of it by Willdenow, Vahl, or any other 
describer we know of, yet it is not less true that all the 
simple-leaved species of Jasmine have gemculated petioles, 
as evei*y one may easily observe, even in dried specimens. 
In some species it is more striking than in others, such as 
in glafu'/tm, simpUdfaUinny and four imdescribed species in 
the Banksiaii Herbarium from Java and Africa, 'flic fact 
is, that the leaves of the Jasmines are simple only by abor- 
tion, and that the part of the leaf-stalk where the knee ap- 
pears is exactly the same place where nature int^ded two 
other leaves to issue. This is particularly obvious in Jas- 
MiNUM auriculatumy in which some of the leaves are rimide, 
and have stalks furnished with a naked articulaticm^ while 
othei*s are without, but eadiibit at the same place two oppo- 
site leaflets* In those species with simple leaver ia wludi 
the knee is not distinctly visible in a diy state, we may be 
easily convinced of its presence by breakmg off a leaf, when 
it will be found that the sqiaration takes place regularly in 
the middle, while the lower part of the petiole remains in 
connexion with the branch.**

qnalitiee have not been mneh inveedgaled, mourb the not 
very remote aiBpity of the genus to Cdicbona, audits nearer 
approach to CoiiBA, ml|;ht indnoe a supposition of their 
not being altogether nnimportant. Only two speeiesy the 
tukaica and A^rftooM, are mentioned in the Spedes Flan- 
tanun of Unnseus, but the discoveries of Anblet and 
Swarta ha,ve enriched the genns, so tliat SB spedes ocoor in

The plant before us seems to come near to citrtfoBa and 
glahrata ; but still there are points in the samples and de- 
scriptions of both these that do not tally with the pre- 
sent: for instance, the leaves are called coriaceous in 
citrif oUa, here they arc membranaceous ; in glahrata the 
leaves are termed ovate, here they are elliptical and equally 
tapei-ed at both extremities. We have therefore separated 
our plant from them ; but still doubt whether we may not 
have missed it in some other of the published species of this 
numerous genus. 

The drawing was taken at the Nursery of Messrs. Col- 
vill in the King's Road, where the plant is kept in the 
hothouse and flowers in December. It is believed to be 
native of the fii»zilsy and to have been now flrst intro- 
duced. 

Young branches deep dark green thickly speckled with 
small wbite even dots. Leaves distantly aiul decussately 
opposite elliptical, tapered at both ends, 3-6 inches long 
or more, twice nanrower, furnished nndemeath at the 
axils of the nerves and midrib with a small cavity con- 
cealed by a pubescence growing from midrib and nerve.

We hate rdied upon Mr. LBmbert^ both in r^aid 
to the specific identity of this plant, as weU as for a mate- 
rial part of the figure. The sample came fimn the col- 
lecdoB at Bojrton in the state shown by the aaneied pUite, 
except that the corolla was so for decayed as to he nnfit to 
be drawn ; and this part, as well as the outline of the lobed 
leaf, has been subsequently added from the plant growing ' 
at Boyton by a person employed by Mr. Lambert. In the 
sample we received all the leaves were entire, oi- with con- 
fluent lobes; but on other parts of the plant, we are in- 
formed, a great portion ot them were threc-lobed. Tfie 
seed was collected at Rio Janeiro, and given to Mr. Lam- 
bert by M. Boupland. 

The species was originallv instituted by CayanQleB firom 
Ae ibfiage and seed-vessel only, for his samplQ had no fiower. 
It seems to be a very nune ^nt among onr coUectoiiy and 
we find no mecfanen of it either hi the Banksian or the 
Lambertian neriwrinm.

It is annual, and requires to be kept in the hot- 
house. Said by Cavanilles to be much cultivated in the 
gardens of Rio Janeiro. The present is probably the first 
plant of it that has appeared in Europe ; and it may be 
long before we see another^ for we understand no seed was 
produced at Boyton.

of the flower remained to be now noticed for the first time. 
In the detailed descriptions by Solander, Jacquin, and 
Ventenat, no mention is made of any crown. In an account 
of it given by ourselves, in a paper on the genus, in the 
Journal of Science and the Arts,** we have relied, as we 
there state, solely upon others, not having then had an op- 
portunity of dissecting a iSower. 

In one of the two nnooloured plates in Mf . Herbert's 
Appendix, we find, under the title jLycoris aurta, a figore 
inttnded for the ma^nyied stigma of the pneent spedes,

of the style as well as stigma^ tne whole beset wllih some sort

are led to sospeot thai the loose-gnuned pdlen whioh fidb 
from the anthers is the reality of the phenomenmi wMi 
Vhich Mr. Herbert has fitted out his genus Lvcoris. 

Abiarylus aurea and radiata have proved in general Teiy 
shy of flowering in. our hothouses ; owing, according to 
Mr. Sweet, to their not being properiy managed. Duly 
treated, they will be found to flower as freely as the rest 
of this natural tribe. In a future article we shall commu- 
nicate Mr. Sweet*s <yrections for .the mannging of hothouse 
bulbs. Of the success of this treatment anifle evidence 
may .be obtained at any time in the hotiiooses under Ms 
care at Messrs. GolvilTs.

, more, with a pair of stalked-flowers placed just above the 
base of the general peduncle; petKaet itnmd, qneading, 
idUous, little longer than the calyx, subtended by a linear 
shorter dose-pressed brade. Cw^x cinereous, tomentose, 
Mabiately campantdate, smooth on the inside, 4-deft 
nearly to the middle, eared at the base by two opposite 
bradeoles, upper Up stnught, broad, retuse, lamer deleft

spread parallelly, the middle one being deflex and suba-» 
late. Lamina of the vexUlum (sUmdard) reniformly orbi- 
cular, upright and reflex, about as long as the calyx, 
emarginately cleft, whitish, marked with evanescent 
violet radii, with a small greenish yellow spot at the

A species distinguishable at once from Amaryllis fotigi^ 
folia in every variety we have seen, by the limb of the co- 
rolla being longer than the tube. There are other diflmr* 
enoei^ bat this is obvious and deinite. 

Revohda appears the most variable of its congeners ; 
and we have been induced from that circumstance to ex-

emplify it by tiic figui*es of two samples, which seem 
the extremes of its unadulterated variation. (B), the 
subject of tlie present article, is nearly, if not precisely, in 
the state in which the species has been shown by Mr. Syden- 
ham Edwards, in the 1178th article of Curtis s Botanical 
Magazine ; a figure drawn from a sample in Mr. Wood- 
ford's collection at Vauxhall, where the plant was ex- 
amined and described by ourselves. Mr. Herbert's asser- 
tions concerning that figure are wholly en-oneous, as a 
reference to the subject itself wijl prove to any one who may 
take the trouble of turning to it. And we repeat, that 
if the plant Mr. Herbert says he was shown at Mr. Wood- 
ford's for the one draw n by Mr. Edwards was really Ama- 
ryllis longtfoliay it certainly was not that wUch Mr* 
Edwards 1^ drawn and w« had detcribed. 

Whether (A) is specifically different from (B) or not, b 
a paint we do not take upon oui*selves to decide ; and can 
only say, that judging from the intermediate variations we 
have seen, thronghont which the essential difference that 
distinguishes rcroluta from longi/olia has been constantly 
and unequivocally maintained, we believe them varieties 
of each other. The delightful fragrance that rendere the 
species one of the most desirable plants for the hothonse, 
is constant to all the vai'ieties w« have noticed.

Since the poblicatm of tlM mriety S (superimm) of 
this popular species (see back, vol. 9, fol. 4S5), many 
others have been added to our coUectioo^. The present is 
one of the latest importatiooa from China, and, in regard 
to tiie blossom, certainly one of the finest ; but then this is 
produced late in the season iind rather sparingly, which 
may be considered as a drawback on the value of the plant.** 

" Introduced by the Horticultural Society in August 
1819, and flowered in their garden the following year. Mr. 
Sabine has noticed it in a paper published in the Trans- 
aclionB of the Horticultmral Society, where be cavme- 
rales and describes all the tbenluiown Chinese CHiviSAifin- 
Mijiis. 1W sodety, deriroos tbal so fine a plant sbonld be 
as nieedily and geaefalfy distributed amoi^ the public as 
posBiMe,ha?e presented suckers and cuttings to the principal 
nnnefymen in tbe neighbonriiood of LoMon, as well as to 
most of tiiecollectoni of curious plants within readi.** 

*' The drawing was taken from a sample exhibited at a 
meeting of the society in December last by Mr. Weils, and 
came fom his garden at Redleaf^ near Tunbridge.** 

** The present variety is remarkable for the incurved 
form of its florets, which shorten regularly and gradually 
towards the centre, forming a brilliantly pink fdl flower 
of about four inches in diameter.**

A genus detaclied from Hbdysarum by Dr. Roxburgh ; 
and principally distinguished by a sessile oval bloated two- 
seeded pod. The present sj)ecies has been referred to it by 
Mr. Brown in the last edition of the Hortus Kewensis ; 

. though the Doctor continued it in Hkdysarum. It forms 
a largish short-stemmed shrub, belonging to various 
parts of the East Indies. Introduced by Mr. Lambert in 

. 1787, and is still cultivated in the collection at Boyton. 
The drawing was taken from a plant in the hothouae at the 
Nuneiy of Messrs. Colvill, ia the King's Road. 

Brandies ntnrrerous, rodded, Tillofifi, and covered, like 
the rest of the plant, except the corolla, by minute re- 
sinous? granular globules, at first white, lastly red. Leaves 
somewhat deflex, subov-ately oblong with a short point, 
nerves parallel, straight, many, hairy underneath; base 
cordate 3-5 inches^ long and about narrower; petiole 
several times shorter than the leaf, villous, straight, as- 
cending, with a thickened flexile jmnt at each end : stifmles 
caducous. Racemes compound; racemules enclosed in 
large leafy imbricated bnictes. Flowers dull greenish dirty 
white, sniftll. Corolla not much longer than the calyx : 
standard broad, reflex, streaked, fflngs shorter than the 
vexilhim, narrow. Keel longer than the >nngs, the two 
j>etal8 running into one towards the upper part of the under 
side. Stamens diadelphous. Germen pedicled, elliptical, 
flattened, shaggy, two-seeded ; ovules kidney-shaped. Sti/le 
several times longer, slender, from a thicker nkldle ta^os 
mg tovraids mch end. Siigma hemM, pate.

Having missed the importunity of inspecting the in- 
florescence of the present plant, we trust to the work above 
cited for its description. The species is there attrihnted to a 
genus formed by M. Aubert du Petit Thouars for the re- 
ception of a considerable orchideous ;i^roup belonging to the 
islands that lie otf the shores of Southern Africa. The 
genus however is one witii which we suspect the species be- 
fore us, a native of tlie Brazils, will not be found to com- 
bine so naturally as is requisite in a well-assorted group.

A very handsome shrub, and pretty common in the 
nnneries about London ; from whence it probably found 
its way to Berlin, where it has been taken for a d stiact 
species by Professor Link in the work we have cited. Oar- 
•dves, we haye^scarcely a doubt of its hybrid descent from 
AiBOTus Unetb and Arbutus Andrachne; seeing the resem- 
blance to each so equally distributed throofffaont the whole 
plant ; where we can find no one point whiim, in our appre- 
hension, is decidedly different from both of them, and 
conseqnently no sfMcific <ystinction that holds good in 
regard to each. It is this e(|naHy proportioned resemblance 
of oar plant to the two species we nave mentioned, and the 
want of any single mark distinct from each. of them, that 
induces in us the persuasion of its mule origin. The flowers 
and foliage are much handsouier than in either Unedo or 
Andiachnv. It has the deciduous bark of the latter, and 
the nearly furlcss ^ernion of the former ; and there is no 
one mark but be Ionics to one or other of these species, or 
is compounded of oiii' of each species ; or in other words 
there is no specitic difference in respect to those two species. 

The drawmr was taken by Mr. Sydenham Edwards, at 
the Nursery of Messrs. Whitley and Co. in the King's Road, 
Fnlham ; where it flowers very early in the spring. The 
bloom is ornamental and smells like noney. .

CypHiA may be known from Lobrlia by a 5-petalled 
corolla, hairy filaments, anthers detached from each other, 
tuberous root, and very diifereiit general habit. The genus 
was judiciously separated by Bergius^ a botanist who has 
done much for the vegetable history of the Cape of Good 
Hope. The species at present known all belong to South 
Africa. Several, unlike the one beforo have divided 
laavfls aad twining atems.

A very curious unrecorded species, now first introduced 
from the Cape of Good Hope. The masterly description is 
by Mr. Brown, who has so far modified the character of 
the genus with respect to that defined by liiniself in his ii- 
lustralion of the natural order, in the Memoii-s of the 
Wernerian Natural History Society^ as toBt it for the re-

ception of the species before us; which he considers too 
naturally allied to the East Indian gnmp be had origuudiy 
allotted to Cabopmia to be seiiacated* 

Hie dsewing was taken in Maidi hel at tbe Nmeery of 
Mem. CoMn, in the King^s Road, Chekea; where the 
plant flowefed in the hothooae. No species of tbe genna 
has been before noticed in any of the catalogues <^ onr 
gardens. 

Herbaceous. Root tuberous, laige in proportion to the 
rest of the plant, which is scarce^ more than frofls thvee to 
six inches nigh. Stem simple, generally twining. Leaves 
ovateiy lanoeoiate, fleshy, pointed* flattish, veialess, shortly 
stalked, outspread and slightly reonrved at the ends, abost 
half an inch long. Spike thinly set, composed of alNHt al- 
ternate 2-4^flowered peduncles, diTided into short pedicles 
wkth dimimitive bractee* FI m m v^nght^ the lowemost 
opening first. ClilMr5-parted; segments Unearty salNdate» 
modemtdhr spieamig, almost three times diorter than 
the vreeelBle part of the tobe of the oeraUa. OmMms^ 
tnbe eyttndrlcaf, springing from a green obofBtely glolmlar 
ftjntly fiiMonieied base; fiunc ranndfbrm^ soorra ; seg- 
msnfs of the limb linear, bearded on the mridtf and at 
the edges by co l o u re d pointed hatm, npric'ht, oonvergiug 
at the tips where they are slightly attached to each other: 
unexpanded limb a pentagonal prism ; faux pentagonal 
with salient angles that are alternate with the segments 
of the limb. Column contained within the ventrico.se base 
of the tube. Crown of one piece, 10-lobed, inserted at 
the top of the short stamineous tube : the five hjbes that 
alternate with the stamens are short, entire, obtuse, and 
pouched at the base; the other five opposite to the an- 
thers, and in some sort inner ones, are several times 
longer, placed edgewise from centre to circuinfei*ence, bend 
outwards, arc falcately recurved, with the inner margin 
truncatcly cluimielled, and the outer sharpened to an c<lge. 
Anthers apart, ovate with lateral cells which open longi- 
tudinally, tipped by a short pointed fleshy appendage that 
lies upon the stigma. PoUen-masses minute, subgiobular, 
attached above their base. Stighia pointless.

Drawn at the Nursery of Messre. Colvill, in the Kings 
Rx)ad, where the seed from which the plant was raised had 
been obtained from the Berlin garden, but originally came 
from the Gorenki garden at Moscow. Dr. Fischer, who is at 
present on a visit to this countiy from Moscow, assures us, 
that our plant is his Campanula cephalotes, as well as the 
speciosa of the authors we have quoted ; but that he has 
since convinced himself, by the inspection of numerous 
varieties of Campanula glomerata^ in various regions of 
Europe, that it ought not to be separated from that 
species, from which it differs only in the greater beauty of 
the flowers. We ourselves had intended to have published 
it by the title speciosa, under which it has already appeared, 
but we yield our opinion with implicit confidence to 
the authority of the able botanist we have mentioned, who 
besides has had much better opportunities of forming 
a correct judgment on the subject than we have had.

The present variety is a hardy perennial and native of 
Dauria, a district of Siberia, not unfrequently confounded 
by the German botanists with Tauria (the Crimea). The 
variety (a) is found in our own country^ as well as many 
oUier European couatries.

In oi the corolla is nearly white, and the leaves gene- 
rally lobed ; in j3 the corolla is rose-coloured, and the leaves 
undivided. 

We have disposed the synonyms peculiar to each va- 
riety under their separate heads, so that u and /3 may be 
divided into species without confusion. 

It was introduced before 1733 by Dr. Uoustoun ; iuid 
lately by Mr. Lambert, who received the seed from Mexico. 

The drawing was taken last autumn from a plant which 
flowered in the stove at the Nursery of Messrs. Colvill, in 
the King's Road. 

We refer to volume 4. foL 342. of this work for the 
description and further account of the species ; as well as 
to the note at dw end of the Appendix of the same volnme. 

Old roots of the Carolinian and Georgian plant («) have 
been known to weigh from 40 to 50 pounds. The desh is 
white and insipid. 

It is possible that « and 0 may be naturally of one 
spertes; and that a variation produced M^cdy by the dif- 
ftronoe of soil and cultivation in die diffeient abodes 
of two, may be the cause of die formation of the 
greater or less proportion of die resin essential to the me- 
dicinal eflfects of their roots. Thai change of climate and 
soil do vary the qualities of plants li known to every one.

Mr. Sabine describes the fruit (the common size of

of the consistLiice of that of a ripe fig, but thinner ; the 
interior a soft fleshy pulp, reddish purple next the skin, 
but becoming paler towards the middle, and at the centre 
quite white. He adds, that it is juicy, of a consistence 
much like that of a strawberry, to which it bears some re- 
semblance in flavour; and though he does not think it 
. equal in quality, it may however, he says, be liked by sonie 
people, being sweet with an agreeable acid.

Mr. S^bet'* Made of treating bulbous Planis. 

" Mr. Herbeit recommends light loam as the true soil 

^ for bulbs ; I have found them succeed better in a mixture 
of white sand^ wiUi rather more than light loam in 

^ which the sward has rotted, and the rest peat ; if the 
loam is veir light, the quantity ai the peat may be dimi- 
nished, and yice versA. The loam should not be dfted, 
for the decayed turfy portion is a valuabte part of the 
compost, as independent of its nutritious qualities it 
helps to keep the wIh^ light and open. All bulbs should 

" be shallowly planted (when potted) in the smallest sized 
pots that will hold them, and all ofllets removed. As 
the bulb grows in size it should be shifted into a laiger 
pot, cave being always taken that the pot is well drained 

''bv potsherds and finely broken tiles, in which the roots of 
aU bidbs delight to run. The trofneal and nearly tropical 
bulbs should at aU times be kc^t in the hothouse, except 

*^ in the summer, when they may be placed on a hotbed 
to accelerate their growth ; due attention being paid to 
the watering of them freely while vegetating, and to 
the keeping them dry when quiescent. All the tropical 

^ kinds are apt to rot in pure loam^ especially when planted

A largish evergreen shrub, introduced from New Hoi 
land subsequently to the appearance of the last edition of 
the Hortus Kewensis ; but already common in most of the 
greenhouses near LfOndoD, where it flowers in the autumn. 
It has much the appearance of one of the laige-leaved 
aorta of Myrtle. 

The drawing was taken at the Nursery of Messrs. Col- 
vill^ in the King's Road, iDhdsea. 

The berry was examined by Mr. Brown, and the plant 
£ound to belong to the present genus> and uot to Myrtus.

plant, and believe it to be oniecorded. We are indebted 
to Mr. Broim far the suggestioii of its affinity with Tv- 
PI8TRA9 a genus established some years ago by oursdvei 
m Cwlia'e Botaokael Megili (Ne. iUB), and known 
lewonly byaalogleaunplau OH wwiwingj heweisv tm

genus with that: the nature of tlieir anthers seems too 
distinct, as well as the consistxince of their corollas and 
shape of their pistillunis. Having neglected to dissect the 
germen in Tupistra, we can say nothing m to their agvto* 
ment in respect to that organ* 

We have ranked Aspidistra in the above natural order, 

not knowing any more suitable place for it ; though it 
does not agree veiy exactly with the definition of the As- 
phodelew of Mr. Brown. Perhaps Tupistra, Aspidistra, 
and OnoNTWM J aj}onictim (erroneously combined with aqua- 
ticnm), may lay the foundation of a distinct natural order ; 
to which iSanseviera camea seems also to approach. 

' The drawing was made in the hothonae of Messrs. 
Colvill, in the King*s Road, Chekea, wheie the plant is 
presumed to be native d some tropical oonntiy; hA oi the 
plaoe idience or the time when introdnoed nothing mmrn 
known tint can be rdied imon^ nor liave we met with any 
'sample in either the Banksian or Lambertian Herbarinms. 

The pistillum reminds us of a Mushroom in miniature. 
The stamens ai-e eight, and the cells of the germen four ; 
but an examination of other samples may very likely 
prove the more natural number of the former to be six^ and 
of the latter three. The six faintly raised plaitlike radii 
on the pur&oe of the convex stigma are probably produced 
by the pi*essure of the seams of the divisions of the limb of 
the corolla in the bud state. The obsoktely 4-rayed cica- 
txpc in the centre of tlie stigma se^ns to annoimoe some 
diiot' that .may oonespoad with the decided hollow of the 
same organ in onrTuFisTRA sqtwUda, Hie anthers are con-

purple on the outside and smooth, but of a uniform deep 
violet-purple and irregularly shs^^ned on the inside, ex-

Introduced from the East Indies in 1796 by Mr. Peter 
Good; and now frequent in the hothouses about London. 
The drawing was taken at the Nui-sery of Messrs. Colvill, 
in the King's Road, Chelsea^ where the plant k in flower 
for a great part of the year. 

An elaborate aoooont of thuipecieB is given in the work 
we htcfe quoted, by Mens. Venteaat ; wlw baa determined, 
by a referonce to the original earapla in Bonnann^s Herbar 
rium, that it is not the plant quoted by Linnseus from that 
authors work as a synonym of Clbrodbndron inforfuna" 
turn. It has since been likewise determined, by a reference 
to Hermann*s Herbarium in the Banksian library belong- 
ing to Mr. Brown, from whence the Clbrodendron «n/br- * 
tunatum of Linnsens was first adopted, that it is not thai 
plant either, which \& probably the same with Bonnann^s. 

Under time cteemmitanmij Mr. Brown, in the late 
edition the Hortns Kewensie, lias omitted all leftrenoe 
*to the litmMwm speeies, and retained on^ Ijhe eynonym 
fivm Yan Rheede, wUeh seems clearly to bdong to the 
plant before ns, and cwisegnently not to iVoffimsftiWi aa 
formerly supposed. M • Ventenat^ on tlm ether hand, al- 
though he changed Hie name of tile qpeehs, stiB re- 
served the Linnaean plant as a synonym to his vimsum^ 
not having the opportunity, which the editor of the Hortua 
Kewensis had, of deciding whether the two were really 
distinct, or not. 

The kera of the Linnamn ^ant are enttre ; of the one 
before us, serrate. 

The fragrance as well as elegance of the blossom makes 
the plant a desirable acquisition for every collection. 

A figure of one of its berries, which likened at ICBwa. 
CoMffi^ is added to the anneiod plate.

** A supposed variety of P-«onia albijlora, and now al- 
most general in our collections. It was introduced from 
China in 1808 by Mr. Whitley, nui-seryman, in the King's 
Road, Pulham ; and was called by his name in the tract 
we have referred to by Mr. Anderson^ in the Transactions 
of the Linnsean Society.** 

The figure in Andi«W8*8 Repodtoiy is but an indiffer- 
ent one^ and the account which accompanies it incorrect, 
in so far as the plant is stated to have been raised in this 
country from seed; for in fact all the samples of it in our 
gardens are derived from one and the same imported stock.** 

The flower is tvaally lai^ thaa hn the aanezed figure 
by Bfr.ShfdeidiamEdmrds; aod is prodnoed fai Jmie^ two 
months before dther of the two double red-flowered va- 
rieties. The scent of the flower has some resemblance to 
that of the common Elder^ but is not unpleasant.** 

^ A list of the varietieB of tiiis specte has been given in 
the 4a5th artide of tMi woric (vol. 6).**. SatbmMSS. 

The drawing was taken at the Nurseiy of Mesm. Whit- 
ley and Co. in Uie King's Road, Fniham.

Dr. Fischer has hinted to us his doubts whether the 
plants of the Crimea and China, which are now included in 
this species as mutual varieties, are really such. He liiin- 
self is inclined to deem them specifically distinct. But 
this point will probably be diecided by himself in some fu- 
ture publication.

One of the fine^ shrubs tiiat have been bitrodooed into 
onr hothonses, and now brooghl to flower for the fint time 
in thk eonntrv at the boCai^ gaiden 6{ the Comtene dee 
VandeSy near Bayswater; an establishment saperintended 
with great skill and intelligence by Mr. Mackay. 

Whetlier it is Catesby*8 species, the origin of the BiownffU 
casndea of LinnaraSi or not, is a pomt almit which we havo 
not been able to convince ottiwlvas. A prototype, ttaigh 
somewhat dilapidated sample, of Gatesby^s plant is preserved 
in theBanksian Herbarium at Mr.Brown*8; in that the leaf- 
lets of the foliage are considerably larger and wider i^iart 
than here} but then ^ere Is also in the same oolleotion 
the leaf of a plant, raised, as said, by Miller at Chdsea* 
from seed of the species to which (^tesby*s plant bdongs, 
and received indeed firom that naturalist himsaif s bow l£is 
leaf we cannot well disttognish tnm ttmns of the mmUU 
plant; so that it k not impossSble but that tbesmaliiHBs of 
the leaflets and their closer order may have arisen from the 
- culture of so large a shrub in the confinement of a gar- 
den-pot and in a stove. Upon the whole, we are inclined 
to believe the two plants to bo of one species. 

Catesby's plant is said to have been obtained from the 
Bahama islands : the present firom the BrasilSy and to have 
been introduced within thsse tfana jfean* But wa loMsr no

tropical plants of America by the names of acutifoUa and 
ohtasifoUa, In the first the leaves are less numerously pin- 
nated than in the species before us, and the leaflets nar- 
^o^ye^ and lanceolate ; in the latter the corolla is smooth 
(witboat any kind of pubeBcenoe)^ and the leaves entirely 
poiatlflss. 

In the natural order to which this genus belongs the 
anthers are generally strictly bilocular, consisting of two 
oblong cells parted perpendicularly through the axis of 
their receptacle from top to bottom into two linear lobes 
which diverge divaricately down to their base, where they 
remain equally fixed tu the point of their ti lament. In the 
species before us, the lowermost of these lobes is abortive, 
its place being faintly denionsti*ated by an imperfect 
rudiment. Judging by the figures, the same deficiency 
seems to prevail in the species recorded by Messrs. Hum- 
boldt and Bonplaud, though unnoticed in the accompany- 
ing description by those celebrated naturalists, who speak, 
on the contrary, of the anthers as bilocular. We can 
scarcely doubt that this circumstance will prove an avail- ^ 
able distinction in the definition of the genus, though we 
have not taken upon ourselves to add it to the character 
propowd by M. de^ussien, who has not noticed it. 

The technical di Here nee relied upon to discriminate 
BiGNONiA from Jacaranda, exclusive of habit, is taken from 
the fruit, which in the first has a partition parallel with 
tlie valves, in the second one placed iu the contrary direc- 
tion to them. 

Soeh samples of the spedes ai are seen In our hoi* 
hottm have not enieeeded ox or seven feet in height, wMi 
a simder ateai aad a light jBsh-eoloimd bark. The fiiriiage 
bears eonriderable- resemblance to that Mimosa and 
Acacia ; it is finely furred and powdered, as well as the 
bfanches, with variously sized grains of a transparent crys- 
tallized secretion, some fine as dust, othei^s as big us a 
large pin s head. 

A cokmred firagnMOt of the leaf has been magnified 
in mr plate, to show num distinctly the mode in which 
the decamnt leaflets are ooanected with theirpetioie. The 
onooikmfed outline of an entire leag in the same plate, is 
one of the smaller ones of the plant of its natural siae. .

1803 ; but had disappeared in our collections, until lately 
imported by Messrs. Colvill, of the Kings Road, Chelsea, 
when it flowered in the hothouse di^ring the spring. It i:> a 
peramial climberj with a very showy violet-purple flower. 

The inside of the calyx is of a dark oUve-green and 

pitted with small white variously confluent spots ; and on 
the outside there arc 5 ? oblong longitudinal slightly per-

A new presnmptive variety of QAMXUJUkjapamcat a spe- 
cies already knowa in our coUeotions under so many beMi- 
tilol appearances. Tlie introduction of the present, we un- 
derstand, js due to Lady Long, the daughter of the late 
Lady^Amelia Hume, whose attachment to her garden has 
enriched our collections with the fine ymxf^ of this spa- 
des published in the second yolume of this Register (112), 
as wnI as many of the rarest and most ornamental pbmts. 

Involuta is not only a very handsome flower, but cu- 
rious for the inflexion of the petals. It was supposed to 
be the same with a variety known through the medium of 
Chinese drawing, and named by our florists C. japonica: 
vor. hexoftgttlarts ; which now is however admitted to be 
different, and nearer to the Red myrtle-leaved variety. 

The drawing was taken in the Conservatory at Sir 
Charles Long's, Bromley Hill, Kent.

Said to be native of the newlv discovered territory on the 
inland side of the Blue Mountains in New South Wales; 
and now first introduced by Messrs. Colvill, of the Cbelaea 
Norseiyy Kiiig*s Road. It has a lively showy appeanmoe

scattered, sessile by a one-jointed decurrent gland, linear 
with the flat side perpendicular, about an inch long, one- 
nerved, slantcdly pointed, with a small pricl<le at tlie end 
of the lowermost edge. Stipules minute, subulate, upright, 
caducous. Flowerheads yollow, axillary, ped uncled, ge-

** A handsome shrub. I have never met with it wild,

In Ihe Banksian Herbarium in Mr. Biown*s library we 
lliid a sample of our plant, which hBi been collated with 
the prototype of the species in the Linnsean Herbarium, and 
are thus enabled to identify it satisfiustoriiy with the Four* 
oppa^ttfoUa of the Mantissa. The bmnehes are quite 
smooth as well as the leaves, which are alnost as brosn m 
they are long and nearly of the length of the interfals. In 
the plant %urad imder the titte of P. cfipon^^ 
Boitanicd Maga^ine» and adopted in the last eAtion of 
Hortus Kewensis> the branches are vOlooa as well as 
leaves nndemealh, which last Are also neaily twlce-as long 
aa they are broad and considerably kn^ier ttiaa the hiteiu 
vals ; characters that prove it to belong rather to the Voly* 
GALA cordifdUa of Wuldenow. Slighter and less ddlito 
distinctions prevail thronghont tha two pkmlss for rt^ 
stance, in the ookurof thecoroUa, which is paler in opp(F^ 
sitifolia^ where the outer lobes of the two petals of the 
vexillum are also proportionately much longer and straighter 
than in cordifoUa, in which these are nearly obsolete and 
point outwards, and the latent alee (see the next article, 
P. ligularis) much more conspicuous here than in cordifolia. 
In fine, the two plants have altogether a very different ge- 
neral appearance from each oth^r. 

We find no pnUished figure of our plant, which is far 
kss coaunon in our collections than cordifolia. The di-awing 
was takett at the Nursery of Messrs. Colvill, in the King's 
Band; Chelsea. The sp^ies is said to have been originaUy 
lauMrted from the Cape of Good Hope» by the late Mr* 
MaMminl790. 

* A very smooth upright straddling-hranched shruh: 
branches rodded, straight, generally tinged with purple, 
round, loosishlv leaved, dichotomous at the end with a 
sessile i-aceiue in the fork of tlie dichotomy. Leaves decus- 
sately opposite, about the length of the intervals, wide * 
spread, nearly sessile, quite smooth, opaque, broadly ovate 
sharp >nth a separate point, slightly cordate at the base, 
about half an inch long and nearly as broad. Racemes 
terminal, short, corymbose, decussately several-(5-7 ?)- 
flowered, spreading, with a short smooth axis or rachis; 
;>c^&ff ^opposite, filiform, wide spread, about equal to the

a white decompounded multifid crest or pencil. Stamens

" PoLYOALBiB. The curious observation of Richard, that 
the arilluB of the seed, whether general or partial, ii never 
foimd in the Dicotyledonous orders with monopetalone 
" flowers, seems to have determined Jussieu (in AnnalcM 4m 
* MM. 14. 386. et seqq.) and other French botanists to re- 
move Polygala, remarkable for its caruncula umbilienliB^ 
from Bhmanthacem with which th&j had placed it* and 
to consider it, along with some nearly rdated genen^ at 
^ isnning a diitfaiet pdypetalons order. They appear to 
** mtf homfnr, not to have taken so correct a yic^ cf the

assist in explaining the nature of the irregularity in Poly-

the corolla is in every other respect very similar. A much

tliete alee are confluent for their whole length with the

the point of the aUe would have been had these been de- 
tached. 

We do not find that the kUmU alee, of whioh bmm 
wfAm, have been previously nolloed in this genus by 
any one, but that its corolla has been always regarded as 
tripetaloos. In three spades firoas the Cape of Good Hope

•ate Hrem Hicir analogy to those of the flower of the pa*

the ooroila wnii the lower segments of the oalyx, have 
certainlj lieen present in a more or less perfeot form % and 
always in such state as to require. In our opinion, the co* 
rolla to be considered as pentapetalous rather than tri- 
pe talous. 

In the corolla of Polyoaul the papilionaceous type dif- 
tm from that of the Legumimme, in having a dipelalons 
vexillum and monopetaloUs carina, instead of a mono* 
patalons vexilhnn and dipetaloas farina as there. 

On mentioning the above circumstance to Mr. Brown, 
be pointed out to us the observation on the genus Skcuri- 
DACA, to be found in the extract fma his wwk in the pes* 
ceding article.

Sampki of this species collected id Nepal are deposited 
in Mr. Lambert's Herbarinm ; and seed of it has been 
recently sent from the botanic garden at Calcutta^ by Dr. 
Wallich^ under the present name. 

The drawing was made at the Nunwy of Messrs. Col- 
Till, in the King's Aoad» Chelsea, where the plwt is culti- 
ymud in tiie ho&mae, Mid flowm dnriog the eaify pait of 
die snmiiier. 

Whether it is a genuine Neottia or not, we do not pre- 
tend to decide, never hiiving critically inspected any one 
of the genus. According to the latest definition, the la- 
helium should be beardless in Neottia, which is not the 
case here ; but that may be a circumstance not essential to 
the group. 

Stt^m several sfanple 9-8 fcet high, slmllied by the 

petioles of the anmerovs qMeading soattered knoeolate 
foliage. Spikes terminal^ simple, cylindricaDy elongated, 
from 6 inches to a foot in length, with numerous small 
open-ranked greenish white inconspicuous flowers : axis 
round, villous. Geimen about | of an inch long, about \ 
longer than the corolla, half inveloped by a rather longer 
greenish bracte, which is pointed and villous on the out- 
side. Label fleshy, nearly of the colour of the rest of the 
corolla but fading to a rusty white, of the same length 
as the other petals but much broader, sessile, upright, 
ovate, shortly pointed, entire, ventricose at the base where 
it is bearded within, top shortly recurved and. bluntly 
pdnted, palate frosted, sUghtly polvinate, and intersected 
by a single furrow.

The species appears to have served Mr. Herbert with the 
matter of two distinct genera ; in neither of which, how* 
ever, can we perceive a single point to distinguish it from 
Amaryllis. In a character subsequently defined by Mr. 
Lindley, the filaments are deeoribed as slightly connected

at the base, the three alternate shorter ones as bidentate, 
mttd the seeds as flat amd membnaoady bordered. Bv the 
two first oiarksy if correctly expressed, it is diBtiwigawhed 
from Amaryllis, and by the latter from Pancratium, to 
wbich last it plainijr comes the neaiesL What Mr.Iandley 
iaiends by mikem twnflftp we own we cannot guess; possib^ 
that efaeoinstaaoe may prove another available dIstiiietkNi. 

The plant drawn for our publication is said to have come 
from Chili ; that which flowered in Lord Caernarvon's collec- 
tion at Highclere, from Buenos Ayres; and a native sample 
in Mr. Lunbert's Herbarium was probably collected in 
Peru. 

The fragrance has been likened to that of Frankincense. 
Ifr. liadky speelBi of tlie learn as grasdike, of a bright 
green ooloar, aadascmning after the departiro of the in- 
florescence. In onr sample the leaves were glaucous and 
simultaneous with the flowers ; nor were the flowers quite 
sessile as described by Mr. Lindley, but had short pe- 
duncles. Mr. Lindley does not seem to have seen the 
foliage. The scape is sometimes a foot and half high. 

If we should ever meet with a fresh plant, we shall 
notice tlie sabfject moie ftiUy in some fatm artide of this 
Register.

natnnl riie. It has been introduoed by Lord Caernarvon, 

and raised in his hothouse at Highclere, where it flowered 
in March last, for the first time in this country. We 
believe that it is not yet in any other collection. 

A stately apedea^ and aaid by Dr. Roxburgh to be na- 
tive of Pega, whence it was sent by Mr. Fdix Carey to 
the Botanic Garden at Calcutta, wbere 'it thrives and bean 
ripe firvit. The aoent of tiie flowers is described as pie»- 
aant; to na it lesembied that of ripe apples. 

In two years the plant will acquire a stem of the thick- 
ness of a man*s arm, and the height of two feet; with 
the leaves of six or eight feet. The blade of the leaf 
is from two to four feet long, and from two to three broad, 
has a smooth surface with broad thick nerves conspi- 
cuously varicose at the under side : the petiole is from two 
to three feet long, forming a sheath at the lower half, from 
thence a cylindrical shaft. The spathe decays and ^Us oflT 
IB aa early stage at the npper half, while the lower bcoomei 
the permanent envelope of the seed. The kernes are of a 
bright scarlet coionr^ and about the siae of a small cherry. 

In Arum the spadix is naked at the upper part, stami- 
niferous at the middle, and germiniferous at the base; 
in Caladium the upper part is covered by a close numerous 
spike of stamens and sometimes terminated by a naked 
point, the middle is glandular^ and the base covered with 
.germens.

qieckled underneath ; the petioles are also longer and more 
rounded at the base. It is known by the name of the 
Bead-treOi** its yellow fruit, about the size of a cherry, 
containing a stone which is strung into Rosaries for tha 
use of the CathoUeSf and is curiously adapted to the pur- 
pose by a natural peiforation in the direction of its axis. 
This species has been thence denominated by the SfmuariB 
the TVee of FBiadiae*' (Arfool de FBrayso). 

We have compared the present plant with native 
specimens from the West Indies in the Banksian and Lam- 
bertian Herbariums, and have no doubt of the specific 
identity of the two. 

Dr. Sdaader obeertaa thai liayrnift-wii ie an impiopeg 
name, fbr, though the IbUMe is or longer endmanee ti!aa 
In Axedmmk^ it is stIO decidnoos, and not evergreen. 

Swartz says, in Jamaica the species varies interme- 
diately £rom a tree to a small bush* It is also native of 
the kiand of St. Vincent

two is in all other respects complete, we have thought it 
safest not to originate another species upon so slight (and 
perhaps uncertain) a differenqe. In the Lambertian Her-

bdimglug to the same ipedes with our plMity and theie

Native of China and Japan. Introduced by Sir Joseph 
Banks in 1790. In the Lambertian Herbarium there are 
several spontaneous samples from Japan. 

Cultivated in the hothouse of the Nursery of Messrs. 
Colvill in the King's Aoad, whm the dcMiif wii inaih. 

A straight simple or sometimes slightly branched shrub, 
about five feet high. Leaves cordate and pointed, the 
largest nearly a foot in length and almost as much in 
breadth, connected by an interpetiolary line of hair: petioles 
nearly nine inches long. Panicles deep scarlet throughout, 
from G inclies to a foot long, upright, decussately spread- 
ing, loosely but numerousfy flower^. 

The' under ode of the whole fiiliage is geaeraUy fimnd 
to he tUekly staddad ndsriMttii with snsett rau^ 
flat-pressed scales^ wMeh we take to be the eoUapsed epi- 
dennides or skins of the glaadnlar flir, the pulp or con* 
tanta of the pile having hean otmiiMitoti by a pore al die top 
of each hair f at least tMi Is ear Tiew of the origin of tiiSBe 
scales, the formation of which, we think, we have seen in 
progress. Jacquin has not noticed any scales in his plant, 
and perhaps they may iu some instances be absent, or at 
least not have assumed that form in certain stages of the 
growth. 

It is an extremdy omamoital ^ant.

A beautifully flowered Crab-tree, found wild in most of 
the forests of the United States of America ; but princi- 
pally in the middle States, and more especially in the re- 
moter districts of Pensylvania and Virginia. Its ordinary 
height is from fifteen to eighteen feet, with a bole of from 
five to six inches in diameter. Insulated trees are sometimes 
fMmd in old cultivate^ spots which measure from twenty- 
ihre to thirty feet in height, with a bole of from twelve to 
fifteen inchefl in diameter. 

The tree does not appear to have been any where the 
subject of horticultural experiment, either in view to better 
tkie quality of its fruit or to obtain new and useful va- 
rieties. Cool and moistish situations in a rich soil are 
those it prefers. The blossom, which is produced early in 
the spring, is delightfully fragrant, and, where the tree 
grows in masses, perfumes the surrounding country for 
miles with an odour said by some to resemble that of 
the violet, by others that of the raspberry. The crab or 
i^ple is small, yellowish-green, austere, with a strong 
disagreeable smdli is used in confectionary, and, where

abundant, is sometimes made by the American farmers into 
tolerable cider. The young leaves have a bitter slightly 
aromatic taste, and would probably serve as a substitute 
for tea. 

Introduced by Mr. Robert Farber in 1724. Tbe draw- 
ing of the flowering branch was taken in the nnrwry 
gromidB of Mem. OoMi, m the Ktag^i Road, Cbdeea. 

We are chiefly indebted for the above account to 
^UHistoire des Arbres Forestiers de TAm^rique Septen- 
trionak** of the younger Micbanx* 

Hie 5gm of IliA tnat, wbkk it rarely seen in tUi 
oonttry, was done by Mr. lindkgr, ftoni a aunpk which 
ripened in a garden at Norwldi.

** A rather numerous genus of perennial herbaceous 
** plants, natives of different parts of New Holhmd. The 
" root is either fibrous, or consists of chistered tleshy bulbs. 
" Stem generally branched and leafy. Leaves linear, nar- 
** row, often chaniu lled, sometimes threadshaped, or short- 
" ened. Flowers terminal, umbellate; rarely scattered; 
** their stalks jointed in the middle. Corolla blue within ; 
" three at least of its segments green at the back. Anthers 
" purple ; the outer ones sometimes whitish, which in the 
" triandrous species are wanting. Seeds black. The per-

Aneilema has an indeterminately panicled inflorescence 
without any general involucre ; Commelina, its nearest re- 
lative, has an inflorescence regularly disposed on a common 
peduncle furnished with a general involucre (sometimes 
folded, sometimes convolute) ; differences which are found 
to induce others km determinate in the general habit of 
the mutual species of the two groups^ and wtuch prove 
the propri e ty of their aepaiatioD* 

The plant of our figure was the produce of Chinese 
seed, imported by the Horticultural Society, in whose hot- 
house it flowered last summer for the first time in this 
country. There is a sample in the Banksian Herbarium at 
Mr. Brown*8, which was collected by bir Geor^ Staunton 
near Canton. 

* 

The species is closely akin to Anbilbma giganiea of New 
Holland, a sample of which was kbidly siiown to m hy Mr. 
Brown ; but that Is a tall plants three feet hicb or more^ 
with Tery narrow linear leaves, and the three bearded sta- 
mens have an perfect anthers. The present plant is not 
■MMie tlMUi idae or ten ineiies high, has broadish ligulala 
leaves, and one of the three bearded stamens is without an 
anther, or at least has only the very imperfect rudiment of 
one. Could we have compared the living plants, other 
points of difference would most probably have been ob- 
tained.

into Europe till now. 

DiawD at the Nunoy of Mesm. Col^ in the Klng^s 
Road, where the plant was giwn in the hothoaee, and 1mm 
attained Hie length of twenty feK or more and ptodoeed 
a few branches at the upper part, . on wMdi Ihe flowers 
appeared late in the snmmer. These were socceeded by 
npe ihdt, one of which is represented in our plate. 

Pallida belongs to a division of the genus with pale 
greenish flowers without involucre or corolla. I1ie ar- 
rangement of the genns in sections assorted by the foliage 
proves inconveniently artificial, separating the nearest and 
approximating the most distant spedes. 

The sample marked Passiflora pallida, in the Banksian 
Herbarium, is certainly the same as Passiflora sefTota, and 
has nothing to do with Plumiers plant. We have uevei' 
found a sample of pallida in any Herbarium. 

In Plamier*s figure the pedunoles are solttaiy ; in onr 
plaot they were generally in pain.

Dr. Roxburgh mentions this elegant twining shrub as 
having been introduced from the Mysore country into the

and adds^ that it has been successfully propagated aod 
established there. 

The plant mm drawn was grown from ieed reoaved bf 
Dowager Lady De GHAid Iran the ManritiaB s and flow- 
ered late tins snminer in the Nnnery of Meem. ColviU, in 
the King s Road. 

AaoYaau is distinguished from Convolvulus and Ipo- 
IKBA principally by an indehiscent seedvenei with one- 
ieeded cells (termed by Dr. Rozboi^h a beny, dther dry 
or snocnknt). The genus consists of strong exteodfely 
growing perennial twinefv> with simple leaves and an 
axillary inflorescence, abounding with milky juice. It 
was oiiginally detached by Looiwo^'whose denomination 
we have adopted} bnt aftei*ward8 more satisfiMStorily de- 
fined and conuderably enlaraed in the mannscripts of 
Dr. Roxburgh under the title LviTBOiaAy a name preoccn- 

ed by a veiy distinct group of plants. All- the spedes 
ong to the East Indies ; at least, all yet known. 

We cannot conceive a handsomer ornament for the hot- 
house ; where the plant keeps up a long-enduring and 
abundant succession of its richly purple blossom, which 
CKpands early in the day^ and frdes before the evening.

Raised from seed from Ae Branb, and, we bdieve, 
bdonging to an noreeorded spedes. Theie are bo nrndes 
of it m eidier the Banksian or Lambertian Heiliariam. Tlie 
plant flowered this summer in the hothouse at (he Nmery 

of Messrs. Colvill, in the King's Road, Chelsea. 

The genna is distinguished from Wsdblia principally by 
the barven ray of the flower and the absence oif aseedcrown 
or pappus. Wc have ymUmi to write the name Gnoio- 
LOMA instead of Gtbinolomia, as more analogous to the 
derivation. This is the first species known to have been 
introduced into our gardens ; the few that are recorded hp- 
long to 8ootli Amerioa. 

A slender uprigl\t sufFrutescent rough-furred perennial, 
in our sample 3 or 4 feet iiigh, remarkable for the square- 
cornered branches mottled with dark red. Leaves mem- 
branous, apt to curl backwards and become deflex, ob- 
longly lanceolate, narrowed at both ends, shallowly serrate, 
largest more than 3 inches long by l^ broad. Flowers 
yellow, terminal, 1-2 but more generally 3, and tricho- 
tomously disposed on short rough peduncles. Calyx 
broadly and shallowly campanulate, in two rows of ovately 
lanceolate leaflets recurved at the top where tlicy are of a 
deeper green. Palew permanent, yellow, and abruptly cus- 
pidate. Germen linear, 4-cornered, edged at the top with 
a short villouslike fringe by way of pappus.

oooe from its ooordioate geaeia by the stractare of tbe pe- 
tiohr iheathy wbidi is oontumed beyond tbe inwIioDef the 
leaf in thelbraief an oona (shwmlifce biaete); and spe- 
cially fiom the elosdy kfaidnpd Hsubkus by the doee- 
spik^ infloresoence, and petakhaped fflament wfaiflh ia 
broader and longer than the intramai^nal aatber. 

The subject of our drawing was sent us by Mr. Gowen, 
having flowered in Lord CSamiarvon*8 hothouse at High- 
clere ; where it had been grown from seed obtained fi om 
Dr. Wallich of the Botanic Garden at Calcutta, aod in- 
seribed a new species of Costus from Nepal.** We 'Oaa 
disoom no differenoe from the established qftcutms, empt 
the narrower foliage and fuller red of the bractes and calyx. 
The two may liowever be really distinct ; thoi^ we do not 
think it eomedient to separate then wittunit a eomparison 
of the two in the fnA slate. 

The stigma consists of two small shallowish transversely 
widened opposite lam'nKv closinj^ together like lips ; the 
front one concave with a roiuulcd entire border, the back 
one convex with a border indented in the form of a crescent, 
the horns of which extend l)eyond the circumference 
of the front one ; behind this at its biise appear two short 
teethlikc parallel upright pointed excrescences coutinued 
from their hiises in a raiseil angle down the back of the style: 
these we take to be the rudiments of two filaments which 
have ascended the style in this way instead of keqnog tlieir 
•lation at the bas^ aaknioiensiial ia theoider. 

The plant has been likewise raibed by Messrs. ColviU, 
at CheLetea, from Nepal seed.

LoAfA was the name originally given to the genus by 
AdansoD^ as supposed, in compliment to some Spanish bo- 
tairiit, but why A should have been altmd to Xooa^ by 
Lianeras we are not told, and aie inclined to believe the 
diflference to be a misprint. Sir James Smith adopts the 
spelling in the works of Linnaeus ; we have adhered to that 
of Adauson. 

The pmttit is, we believe, an unrecorded specie^

The drawing was taken from a plant raised by Mr. Gref 
Bennett, in his hothouse at Walton upon Thames, from 
seed from Valparaiso, and is the first of the genns known 
to have appealed in Uie gardens of this ooontfy. 

The group, as fhr as we are acqudnted with it, belongs 
entirely to South America, and seems to abound principally 
in Chili and Peru. Some of the species are of great beauty 
with large brilliantly coloured flowers. Many of them, like 
the present, are covered with a stinging pubescence, and 
require to be handled with the same caution as our conunon 
Nettle.

** Grows naturally in moist places in Virginia and New 
England, but is very difficult to preserve long in a gar- 



den. I received some roots of this from New England a 
** few years a^o, which continued two years, but the soil 
being dry they decayed in summer. These should have 
" a moist shady situation, otherwise they will not thrive. 

The leaves of this sort are divided like those of the 
" ' Common Dragon' (Arum Dracunculus) , but are smaller, 
and rarely grow more than nine inches high ; the flowers 
are like those of our common Arum or Cuckow-Pint 
(Abum tnacidaiumjf but the pistil is longer than tbe 
spathe. It flowers in June and the stalks decay in an- 
tmnn.'* MIL did. ed.7.n. 9. 



According to Dr. Barton it is found wild in the neigh- 
bourhood of Philadelphia, on the western border of the 
Sclmylkill and on the Wissahickon ; where it flowers in 
June and grows to the height of two feet. In other parts 
of the United States, it seldom exceeds the height of nine 
inches. Messrs. Pursh and Nuttall speak of the species as 
one to be found from PeDsyivaoia and Virginia to Florida.

Cultivated with us in 1707 by the Duchess of Beaufort. 
Drawn in the greenhouse of the Nursery of Messrs. Coivill 
in the Jong's Road. 

In a fonner artide of ^ Register, in spealdiif of 
irtiat Ufa tenned the kUemi aim (wings) observed in oertain 
species of this fenns, they are qiorai of as of parts that 
1m not been nefore no&eed in FosmAiA by any other 
than ourselves. We were not then aware of tiw ddbo- 
rale iUnstiation of the mdes before as In the splendid 
folio of J. Bfiller^ to wUdi onr attention has been once 
.drawn by the passage we have quoted from SHr Jaawa 
Sodtb. On referring to this figure ot J.WBimfu, we find 
these laieni wmgs (alee) distinctly and fldthfully rq^re* 
sented, and believe that that artist is probably the first pei^ 
son who observed them. By every subsequent botanist we 
are acquainted with, they have been overlooked. The corolla 
is universally spoken of as tripetalous, except by 8ir James 
Smith in the passage we have quoted in reference to Miller's 
figure and dissections. 

For the distinctions that separate myrtifoiia from llgu- 
lmi$^ its nearest relative* we shall refer to the article whush 
treats of the latter spedes (foL 637, in the pre es nt vo- 
Inme). 

MyHifoUa forms a slender stragg^ling-branched shrub of 
three or four feet in height, and is found very generally in 
our greenhouses, where it flowers for a great part of the 
summer^ and is of easy cultivation.

Drawn in the hothouse of the Nursery of Mr. Lee at 
Hammersmith, where the plant has now flowered (in the 
shape of a small shrub of two or three feet high) probably 
for the first time in Europe, although pretty common in our 
collections. It had not flowered at Kew (though intro- 
duced by Dr. William Wright as far back as 1778), when 
the last edition of the Cat^ogue of that garden was pub- 
lished. 

In JamaieSy its native place, it fimnaa ptiiicipal orna- 
ment of the monntain forarts. In onr liotbonses it Is to be 
seen in miniatore. 

" This tree rises by a single slender stem like the Palms, 
" and bears all its oval pinnate moderately ribbed leaves 
*' disposed closely together about the top ; the leaflets of 
" these are six or seven inches lone: and about two broad in 
** the middle. The branches grow from all sides at the top 
" in a spiral order, for about two feet in a tree 50 feet 
" high ; they spread horizontally, the lowermost about five 
" feet long, the other diminish in size as they approach the 
** summit. As the old ones drop they leave protuberant tri- 
" angular scars on the body of the tree, and which are 
" seen winding spirally about the stem wherever it is bare. 
" A tree which measured 50 feet in height was only 17 
" inches in the circumference about four feet from the 
" ground, and the tree leaned considerably from the weight 
" of the pyramidal panicle of flowers, which issued from 
" the summit close to the foliage and afforded a magnificent 
" sight ; the lowermost branches of the panicle measured 
eight feet from the point of one to the point of the other 
" opposite ; it was six feet high and thickly covered with 
beautiful bright purple flowers, about half an inch in di- 
" ameter when expanded. This fine garland, from the 
height of the tree on which it is borne, may be seen abovo 
the tops of the forests at a great distance, llie wood 18 
wiiite soft and brittle, of no use in buildioff. Browne 
has called car tree the Maiden PUud, a name which be- 
*^ loDgs to a very difierent plantj CkmocumA wtegnfoUaT

Samples had been long since brought from the Brazils by 
M. Commerson, and upon these the species was founded in 
the Encyclopedic of the Chevalier de Lamarck. Other 
samples from the same country were subsequently deposited 
in the Banksian and Lambertian Herbariums by Sir George 
Staunton. But the living plant has only now been intro- 
duced into our gardens, where it flowered for the first 
time in the hothouse of the Nursery of Messrs. Colvill^ 
King s Road^ Chelsea. 

Hie ^edfic name was suggested by the leaf in a dried 
ttate, when the upper side ahowa very distinctly its nu- 
merous taperinn^ oblong lecnmbently adheient idiitiflk

The winged corners of the branches, the long woolly

species conspicuously from all its compatriot oongeoen we

the Portuguese appellation of one of the Ceylon species, 
Bocca preto, or Black Mouth, which arose from the effect 
of the fruit upon the mouth of those who eat it. Some of 
the West Indian species are known by the name of * Ame- 
rican Gooseberries.* *' Smith in Rees's cyclop, in loc. 

Sir James Smithy in the above article, very justly doubted 
whether the plant given in Cut*ti8*s Botanical Magazine 
(529) for MiLAsioifA malabathrica really belonged to that 
speckB ; for a comparison with the prototype aample in the 
Hermanns* Herbarium has proved it mamfcetly different. 
In the plant of the Magazine the leaves are ovately Ian- 
eeolate^ broader, longer, shining, 7-nerved, and Ims hlq^d; 
in our phnt, the tme wuJabatbrica, they are elllpticnlly 
lanceolate, d-nerved, and opaque ; in Iftof the biaaaies are 
beset with longish oardhic^noas spreadiw flexile bristles^ in 
this with smful hard brown lanceokteqr cuspidate dliale 
dos&pressed scales s in that the laifer ca^ and tonger 
peduncles are thickly beset with qirea^Ui^ cartHacfaraos 
fleule spiuelifce bristles; in iUs the same are thickly 
w^led and have a sillcy or rather pearly gloss ; besides by 
the first being much smalls and the latter much shorter; 
in thai the flowers are likewise considerably larger imd 
paler. In &ct no two congeners can be more satisnustorify 
distinguishable. 

It appears that the true species was cultivated by Miller. 
The plant of the Botanical Magazine was introduced by 
Sir George Staunton in 1795, most probably from China. 
The subject of the present article was drawn by Mr. Syden- 
ham Edwards, at the Nursery of Messrs. Whitley and Co. 
in the King*8 Road, Fulham, and had been raised finom 
seed sent from the East Indies by Sir Evan Nepean, four 
or five years ago. It is a hothouse plant. There is another 
nearly allied species with a larger flower than that of either 
of those we have mentioned, of a still more recent intro- 
duction, viz. Mblastom A sdngumea, 

M. aspera is likewise an East Indian species nearly akiu 
to malabathrica, but w ith far smaller leaves and a pariiclcd 
inflorescence : this ha^s the curious scaly pubescence of the 
pi-eseut species. Dm

We do not trace it to any recorded qiedes. It comes 
near to Fumiiiara rejlexijiara of CavaniDes (Tacsomu. 
Penmm syn. 2. 222)» and agrees with it minutely in habit, 
foliage, stipules, invducce, and ^sporitioii of the parts of 
the flower, but diflfers in having the wrceoku (tnbuhr 
portion of the calyx) several times shorter than the fimb, 
instead of one equal to that, and bj a cmm of filiform 
rays instead of a group of small glandular bodies. In 
several remcts the pbnt i^i|Hroaches ukewise to Fissitunul 
gUmca j(to1. 1. §oh 68.) of our Res^ister ; but between them 
the diflRsrences are still move manifold. 

Native of the Brazils, where it was collected by Mr. 
NewmaoD and sent to Mr. Lee's Nursery. Spontaneous 
samples have been deposited in Mr. Lambert's Herbarium ; 
in which then» axe others of Tacsoiua r^^Sea^^S^ 

We shall here observe, that although Passiflora, from 
Hs extent, may require division into separate genera, yet 
we are persuaded that the characters selected for Murucuja 
and Tacsonu will ultimately be found such as do not unite 
either natural or even convenient groups. 

Picturata is remarkable for the colour of its foUace, 
its large foliaceous stipules, its small calli or glands under 
the edge of the sinuses of the divisions of the leaves, for its 
reflex calyx corolla and crown, for its conical thick-fleshed 
ladiatdy parted operculum (lid of the nectary), as well as 
the short pyramidal shaft of the oolnmn. 

In the Enumeratio of Willdeuow, voL 2. p. 697, we hud 
a species recorded as follows : 

Fassiflora cttraaumuBy foliis cordatis trilobis, lobis ova- 
tis acuminatis, intermedio longiore, sinubus glandnlosil^ 
petidis biglandulosis. Habiiai ad CBoracas. Jacq. 

A description as far as it goes tliat would suit either 
picturata or reflexiflora, except that there are but two 
glands attributed to the petioles. To take up a s{)ecies in 
tliis way is to give a riddle without a refei'ence for the key 
to it.

The plant from which the drawing has been made, flow- 
ered this summer in the hothouse of Dr. Hood, at South 
Lambeth, It is a very rare species in our collections; 
and has been no where represented except in the work on 
the (yoromandel Plants, by Dr. Roxburgh ; where it is spoken 
of as native of the moist vallies among the hills in India, 
and as growing on the ground, not on trees, like the great 
portion of tlm natural order in the tropical cUmates. 

Intradnded into our gardmia by Sir Joseph Banks in 
1800> along with its congeners purpurmm and cUrk ut m, aH 
natim of toe same coiuitry. 

We observed two very singular crimson scars upon the 
bed of the pollen-masses, one under each of them, and 
evidently connected with the early stage of their produc- 
tion. Mr. Brown, to whom we showed thern^ thought them 
a remarkable appearance. 

OioDOBUM was original^' insdtnled by the late Mr. 
JadDMNi, thsn Ubmikn to Mr* Lambert; but has besa 
subseqaiiiatly laoftodeiled by Mr. Brown. It comes near to 
MAI4ZIS; bot the poDen-masses are there ftrar; here two 
angraented by a lobe bdiind.

Figured and described by Mr. Lindli^ in the paUicfr- 
tion we haye quoted. 

Native of China, and but lately introduced into our 
gardens, where it grows readily and blossoms in perfection. 
The annexed figure is from a sample we were favoured 
with by Sir Abraham Uame, from his botboiue at Worm-, 
leybury.

are produced from all parts of the stem or branches from 
between the leaves, and serve as aboveground stays or 
props, adhering where requisite to the smoothest surface 
by the same process that holds the misletoe to the oak and 
the sea-weed to the rock. 

According to the character of this division of the order, 
the anther should be decidaons ; bat Mr« Lindley has cha- 
raeteiiaEed it as permaneiit ; aod it is true, that in oar 
hothouses we have never seen it spontaneously removed at 
any stage of the existence of the flower from the hud state 
to its decay. By a slight pressure, however, from the point 
of a needle it faUs off entire, while the pollen-masses, 
by means of the remarkable process iHiich supports them, 
start with connderable elasticity from their places; and we 
suspect that in the nadve country of the plant the anther 
is spontaneously dedduous, and not of the nature of that 
intended by Mr. Brown by a perinanent anther. We do 
not mean to imply, by this remark^ that such removal is in 
any way necessary for the due access of the pollen-masses 
to any portion of the pistil. 

In terming the pollen-masses entire (Integnv), if Mr. 
Lindley means, that they are without division or incision, 
be is certainly mistaken, for each is scored or cut round 
into two unequal lobes or segments of its orb, and in that 
i*espect conies directly within the definition of the character 
attributed to the genus by Mr. Brown. 

Mr. lindley speaks of the germen being twisted ; to us 
it appeared straight, as in the Vanda pmdaUata of this 
publication, to which it comes near in many respects.

whei*e it is cultivated ia the hothouse and flowers late in 
the autumn. 

We were fayoored witk iheeampk for our diawiog firom 
tbe Kew Collectioa. 

The species is marked by several peculiarities that sepa- 
rate it widely from every other upon record except longipes, 
from which it is however distinguishable as follows : in 
hngipes the leaves are ovately lanceolate and taper-pointed, 
the petioles have four stipitate calli or glands, the involucre 
keeps its place during the expansion of the flower, which, 
according to Messrs. Hamboldt and Bonpland, who ga- 
thered it on Mount Quindiii in New (nanada, is of a pale 
rose-colour. It is firom the samples of those celebrated 
travellers that the species has been recorded and figured by 
M. de Jussieu in the Annales du Museum. Whether the co- 
lumn of the fructification is there curved and inclined, and 
. the stamens unequally divided and directed to one side, 
as in albida, are points that cannot be determined either by 
the figure or description. If not, the present species is, ag 
£ar as our obsenration extends^ an anomaly in the genus.

phijlla of Foi*ster» native of New Zealand, Calba acukaia 
of Labillardi^rcy and several other tpeciea, native in New 
Holland and Van Diemen's Idand. It is nearly related to 
OzQTBAiOfus, from idiich it is to be distinguished dilefly 
bgr the pales oi its leceptaele. 

** I propose (we quote the words of Mr. Brown) to name 
the genus in honour of M. Henry Cassini, whose well con- 
ducted investigation of Qmpositoc has already thrown much 
light on the structure and economy of the more important 
parts of fructification of this difficult class : and especially 
of those organs from which the Hi<f ^ingnifthing cliaiaoten 
of Cassinja are derived.'* 

The gerasy like Qsothamnhs, admits of sobdivision 
into two aecUons; and I have appended to it Galea 
^fedaiiUs of LabiUardiirey a plant oomqionding with it in 
charaoler, but diftring very much in habit from all the 
other spedes."

Cassinia spedabiUs ii native of. the southern oout of 
New Hdland, where it was found by Afr. Brawa waumg 
the treef and bushes near Memory Ckive, Port lincoln, &c.

from whence the seed frmn which the plant has been raised 
was imported by Mr. CohfU, wMi wliom It lias flowered

Nursery in the Khig*s Road. 

The Cassinia aurea, described by Mr. Brown in the

published in 1813, proving to be the same with Angianthus 
tomentosus of Wendland's " Collectio Plantarum " (2. 32.

In the Journal above quoted we had adopted C. au-

urgh (the latter plant only being at that time known 
to ni by inspection), though in truth we could never 
trace any satisfactory mark of their distmction in the de- 
floriptions by the Doctor. Since then fdants of both 
types have been obtained by Lord Caernarvon from the

tion the real differences between the two. Each has flowered 
in the hothouse at Highclere, and the one before us is that 
said to represent augustum ; as the one figured in Curtis s 
Magazine does amabUe (superbum, lUxb.}. 

Mr. Gomiy wbo was so Idnd as to forward the sample 
Ibrtiie dnnring, says in his letter: bothqiecies haTiiigiioir

ITpon the whole, taking it for granted that the two 
plants are the true types of the species intended, and that 
there is no mistake on this head, we are yet far from per- 
suaded that any marks we can see or that have been yet 
proposed are siitlicient to determine their s|>ecific separation ; 
and shall accordingly leave them under one head, with the 
proper name and synonymy allotted to each, that tbeymi^ 
hereafter be mora advisedly disposed of. 

The difference of their native places, if correctly stated 
by Roxburgh (whose description of each species is sub- 
joined), would be in our minds the strongest evidence of 
their specific difference that has yet been proposed.

Introduced within these four or five years from New 
Holland. 

Drawn at the Nursery of Mr. Lee, at Hammersmith^ 
wbm it Is cultivated in the.gieeiihoii8e. 

We have taken the description from M. Wendlaiid's 
work on the simple-leaved, or, as that author more criti- 
cally terns them leafless, Acacias, their apparent leaves 
being nothing more than dilated stalks, while the true 
leaves are only found on the seedling plant. See the oh- 
servations of Mr. Brown on Legum'mosce in the fifth 
volume of this Register, page 2 of the 361st article.

SiCHomAmRA 18 technically distinguished from Carto- 
NEMA (Brown prod. 371) by a deliquescent deciduous calyx 
smaller than the corolla and irr^^arly convergent sta- 
mens, as well as by many particulars in the habit ; from 
Tradescantia by naked filaments, by the anthers being 
inserted at their base, anclby the lengthened ubloug form 
and contiguous parallel linear cells of the same, fis well as 
by the want of an involucre and very different disposition of 
the inflorescence ; the dilFerence in liabit of the two la^st is 
not indeed great in regard to the rest of the plant. 

We were directed by Mr. Brown to the work which con- 
tains the description of this fine plant ; and have to thank 
the Hune gentleman for pointing out to us the main distinc- 
tions firom both its abovcmentloned coordinates. 

The sample for the drawing was kindly forwarded to us 
by Mr. Harrison, of Aigburgii, near Liverpool, along with 
a skilful and characteristic repn^sentation of the plant by a 
Lady of his family. It had been raised in the hothouse 
from seed from the Brazils, where, according to M. Mikan, 
the species is found wild at about thirty miles distance from 
Bio Janeiro. 

Noir fint introduced into our gardens. 

A perennial herbaceous caudescent plant, from three to 
#6ur feet high^ sometimes simple^ sometimes 2-3- branched.

The plant is smaller and the inflorescence less showy 
than in Costus .speciosus, lately published in this volume. 
The corolla is white without any mixture of red, and tbe 
calyx aod bractes are luuformly greea. 

SeveiBl iiilaiits were railed, of wbidi aome had the fofi- 
* age roogfatehly fnrred miderneath, ciliale pedoles^ and a long 
wait fringe round the run of ibe ocrea; others, among 
which was the nibjecl of ttus article, a foliage quite smooth 
throughout. In all other respects the two were so com- 
pletely alike, that we do not believe in their differenes as 
species, and have consequently given them for mutual Ta- 
riettes. Hie native sample in Mr. Browns Herbarium is 
of the smooth variety. 

Afer diffisn from ^pecbsus, not pnly in general stature 
and colour of inflorescence, but more essentially by its 
obovately or turbinately contracted spike, obtuse nnnracro- 
nated braoleSy vary sballowly trifid calyx with pointless 
herbaceous s^fmentSy and filament quite smooth at tbe 
back. The same remarkable protuberance (stamineons 
rudiment ?), slightly modified, which we described as oc- 
cupying the back of the base of the stigma or rather sum- 
mit of the style in tpechtui, is found in the same positioa

Favoured as well by the unusual wai*mth of the summer 
as by theprolonged mildness of the autumn, the plant flow- 
ered last November ift the borders of the garden at Boyton 
House, Wiltshire: ia an ordiiiaxy season we fmpeci it 
would not have done so in the same ntuation. 

A finely divided deep green foliage disposed in paii-s 
upon a branching stem of six or eight feet high terminated 
by corymbs of a numerous golden-coloured blossom, ren- 
der the plant one of the iiiosL dcbirable of the larger horti- 
cultural ornaments. 

Native samples, ticketted Coreopsis angtuitf^Mi^ are 
deposited in the Lambertian Herbarium. They came along 
with a valuable collection of Mexican planta lately received 
fiem M« Pavon. 

The awns of the seed being barbed ly pubescent show the 
plant to be no Coreopsis, and bring it nearer to Bidens, 
where we have placed it ; though it diffei'S in some degree 
from that genus also (according to Mr. Kunth's definition) 
in having flat cuneiform seed with deciduous (not perma- 
nent) awns. The fact however is, that the awns are not 
strictly permanent in Bidens, but fall spontaneously on 
the seed coming to perfect maturity. 

The genns belongs to HeUanthem-^aretrnddeWy the se- 
cond section of HeliantkecBf the ninth tribe of the order 
Sunaniherem of the able and elaborate arrangement by M.

a general involucre of several pieces, as in Dipsacece; bat 
diier on the other lumd from those of that order by hay* 
ing a ample calyx and inferior corolla. From Primula" 
ceee the onler recedes further^ by the fruit being a solitary 
seed enveloped in the calyx and by stamens that aie aher- 
nale with the s^^ments of the corolla ; whilst the presence 
of a real corolla removes it by a yet wider sqiaiation from 
Phmbagmeof, N$fckigmeaf, aidPrt^eaoem. 

The description of the present species is from the mas- 
terly pen of the late Dr. Solander, and has been copied 
from the manuscript in Mr. Brown*s library. 

It was upon Globulabia Alyptim that the older bota- 
nists had bestowed the name of Frutex terribilis,** and 
onr gardeners that of " Herb terrible,** influenced by tlie 
exaggerated repute of its drastic quality. The name 
devolved upon the present species merely as a congener. 

Sir Ilaus Sloane, who found the shrub in Madeira, de- 
scribes the wood as white and hard, with a large pith ; he 
however, as Dr. Solander remarks, mistook the fruit of the 
distinct llowers within the general involucre for a single 
fruit of a same dower. 

The shrub Is said seldom to exceed three feet uiheiglil, 
and was found by Masson of that slse growing wild among 
the rocks. 

Introduced into our greenhouses by Sir Joseph Banks in 
1775.

For the oatline of the gemis and enmnenitioD of tlie 
species we refer to Mr. Browii*8 obsermtioiis onLissocaiUTS 
tpedosu*^ vol. 7. fol. 678. of this work ; where the name k 
written ^ EuuMWus,** and hasbesa noar alteiad in the tsi^ 
mination on the suggestion of its author. 

The recorded species are from theCa|)c of Good Hope and 
the East Indies ; the unrecorded one before us from Sierra 
Leone^ whence it was introduced last summer into the gar- 
den of the Horticultural Society by Mr. George Don, col- 
lector for that pnblio-spirited, weU^iirected association 1 

The crested character of the label is, perhaps, less con- 
spicuously marked in the present species, than in any men- 
tioned by Mr. Brown ; and is moreover strictly confined 
to the funnelform portion of that petal, where it appears 
in the form of several green slightly r«iisccl even parallel 
callously tuberculatcd syui metrically (Jis[)osed vertical lines, 
easily mistaken for as many varicose nerves. 

The lid of the anther is remarkable for a thickened 
fleshy frosted three-lobed shallow border extended along the 
hinder edge ; the two lateral divergent lobes of which ava 
let into correspon<Ung indentatMMis in a raised margin at tba 
back of the apex of the column. Upon the flower being" 
folly expanded this lid falls 0% and when viewed in the 
microscope is not unlilu the empty a|q»er shell of the diasfr- 
nutive Crahi so frequent on oor shores. 

TTie two uncoloured outlines in the plate are front and 
side views of the llower when deprived of tlie five upper 
petals, and are intended to show the relative positions of the 
column and labeL

Comes near to Bakksia serrata^ but differs by a shrubby 
instead of an arboreous stature, by a more deeply indent- 
ed foliage, silky furred corollas, and essentially by a capi- 
tate unfurrowed bright smooth stigma twice as big round 
as the fourcomered tip of the style. Serrata, besides being 
a tree, has a cylindrical furrowed stigma with a thickened 
slanted base, and a style pulvereously pubescent at the bot- 
tom. The flowerheads of the two differ considerably in 
colour: in cemula thejf are of a yeUowiah green, in Mmrta 
of a Uorish grey* 

Thirty-one species have been distinguished by Mr. Brows, 
all of them either trees or shrubs of Australia, the former 
however of no considerable height. The genus is divi(Jed 
into two sections, of which our plant belongs to the first, 
consisting of the more genuine species ; characterized by 
a style of greater length than the corolla, from one side of 
which it protrudes by an arch sprung between the claws 
(ungues) of the petals which open earlier than the blades 
(lamince); by a stigma enclosed within the subsequently 
opening blades of the petals ; by a flowering catkin (amen- 
tum) of a subcylindrical form, and a fruiting one of several 
transversely disposed woody one-valved seedvessels (/aUi- 
cuUj. The section includes all bat one fipecies.
