Caryopteris






CARYOPTERIS MASTACANTHUS.--China and Japan, 1844. This is a neat-growing

Chinese shrub, and of value for its pretty flowers that are produced

late in the autumn. It must be ranked as fairly hardy, having stood

through the winters of Southern England unprotected; but it is just as

well to give so choice a shrub the slight protection afforded by a

wall. The leaves are neat, thickly-arranged, and hoary, while the whole

plant is twiggy and of strict though by no means formal growth. Flowers

lavender-blue, borne at the tips of the shoots, and appearing in

succession for a considerable length of time. Light, sandy peat would

seem to suit it well, at least in such it grows and flowers freely.
