Celtis






CELTIS AUSTRALIS.--South Europe, 1796. This species is much like C.

occidentalis, with black edible fruit. It is not of so tall growth as

the American species.



C. OCCIDENTALIS.--Nettle tree. North America, 1656. In general

appearance this tree resembles the Elm, to which family it belongs. It

has reticulated, cordate-ovate, serrated leaves, with small greenish

flowers on slender stalks, and succeeded by blackish-purple fruit about

the size of a pea. A not very ornamental tree, at least so far as

flowers are concerned, but valuable for lawn planting. It varies very

much in the size and shape of the leaves.
