Billardiera






BILLARDIERA LONGIFLORA.--Blue Apple Berry. Van Diemen's Land, 1810. If

only for its rich, blue berries, as large as those of a cherry, this

otherwise elegant climbing shrub is well worthy of a far greater share

of attention than it has yet received, for it must be admitted that it

is far from common. The greenish bell-shaped blossoms produced in May

are, perhaps, not very attractive, but this is more than compensated

for by the highly ornamental fruit, which renders the plant an object

of great beauty about mid-September. Leaves small and narrow, on

slender, twining stems, that clothe well the lower half of a garden

wall in some sunny favoured spot. Cuttings root freely if inserted in

sharp sand and placed in slight heat, while seeds germinate quickly.
