In ages long gone by, my informant knew not how long ago, a wonderful cow had her pasture land on the hill close to the farm, called Cefn Bannog, after the mountain ridge so named.

Azara






AZARA MICROPHYLLA.--Chili, 1873. This is the only recognised hardy

species, and probably the best from an ornamental point of view. In

mild seaside districts it may succeed as a standard in the open

ground, but generally it is cultivated as a wall plant, and for which

it is peculiarly suitable. The small dark green, glossy leaves are

thickly arranged on the nearly horizontal branches, while the flowers,

if they lack in point of showiness, are deliciously fragrant and

plentifully produced. For wall-covering, especially in an eastern

aspect, it is one of the neatest of shrubs.



Other species in cultivation are A. serrata, A. lanceolata, and A.

integrifolia, but for general planting, and unless under the most

favoured conditions, they are not to be recommended. The Azaras are by

no means particular about the quality of soil in which they are

planted, and succeed well even in stiffish loam, bordering on clay.
