Castanea






CASTANEA SATIVA (_syn C. vesca_ and _C. vulgaris_).--Sweet Spanish

Chestnut. Asia Minor. Few persons who have seen this tree as an

isolated specimen and when in full flower would feel inclined to

exclude it from our list. The long, cylindrical catkins, of a

yellowish-green colour, are usually borne in such abundance that the

tree is, during the month of June, one of particular interest and

beauty. So common a tree needs no description, but it may be well to

mention that there are several worthy varieties, and which flower

almost equally well with the parent tree.
