Berchemia






BERCHEMIA VOLUBILIS.--Climbing Berchemia. Carolina, 1714. A rarely

seen, deciduous climber, bearing rather inconspicuous greenish-yellow

flowers, succeeded by attractive, violet-tinted berries. The foliage

is neat and pretty, the individual leaves being ovate in shape and

slightly undulated or wavy. It is a twining shrub that in this

country, even under favourable circumstances, one rarely sees

ascending to a greater height than about 12 feet. Sandy peat and a

shady site suits it best, and so placed it will soon cover a

low-growing tree or bush much in the way that our common Honeysuckle

does. It is propagated from layers or cuttings.
