Cassandra






CASSANDRA CALYCULATA (_syn Andromeda calyculata_).--North America,

1748. This is a handsome species from the Virginian swamps, but one

that is rarely seen in a very satisfactory condition in this country.

It grows about 18 inches high, with lanceolate dull-green leaves, and

pretty pinky-white flowers, individually large and produced abundantly.

For the banks of a pond or lake it is a capital shrub and very

effective, particularly if massed in groups of from a dozen to twenty

plants in each. There are several nursery forms, of which A. calyculata

minor is the best and most distinct.
