Caesalpinia






CAESALPINIA SEPIARIA (_syn C. japonica_).--India, 1857. This is as yet

a comparatively little known shrub, but one that from its beauty and

hardihood is sure to become a general favourite. Planted out in a

light, sandy, peaty soil, and where fully exposed, this shrub has done

well, and proved itself a suitable subject for the climate of England

at least. The hard prickles with which both stem and branches are

provided renders the shrub of rather formidable appearance, while the

leaves are of a peculiarly pleasing soft-green tint. For the flowers,

too, it is well worthy of attention, the pinky anthers contrasting so

markedly with the deep yellow of the other portions of the flower.

They are arranged in long racemes, and show well above the foliage.
