Corylopsis






CORYLOPSIS HIMALAYANA.--E. Himalayas, 1879. This is a stronger growing

species than C. pauciflora and C. spicata, with large leaves averaging

4 inches long, that are light green above and silky on the under sides.

The parallel veins of the leaves are very pronounced, while the

leaf-stalks, as indeed the young twigs too, are covered with a hairy

pubescence.



C. PAUCIFLORA is readily distinguished from the former by its more

slender growth, smaller leaves, and fewer flowered spikes. Flowers

primrose-yellow.



C. SPICATA.--Japan, 1864. This Japanese shrub is of very distinct

appearance, having leaves like those of our common Hazel, and drooping

spikes of showy-yellowish, fragrant flowers that are produced before

the leaves. There is a variegated form in cultivation.



The various species of Corylopsis are very ornamental garden plants,

and to be recommended, on account of their early flowering, for

prominent positions in the shrubbery or by the woodland walk. Light,

rich loam seems to suit them well.
