Clerodendron






CLERODENDRON TRICHOTOMUM.--Japan, 1800. This is at once one of the most

beautiful and distinct of hardy shrubs. It is of stout, nearly erect

growth, 8 feet high, and nearly as much through, with large,

dark-green, ovate leaves, and deliciously fragrant white flowers, with

a purplish calyx, and which are at their best in September. Thriving

well in any light soil, being of vigorous constitution, and extremely

handsome of flower, are qualities which combine to render this shrub

one of particular importance in our gardens.



C. FOETIDUM, a native of China, is only hardy in southern and seaside

situations, where it forms a bush 5 feet high, with heart-shaped leaves,

and large clusters of rosy-pink flowers.
