Daphniphyllum






DAPHNIPHYLLUM GLAUCESCENS.--East Indies, Java and Corea. A handsome

Japanese shrub that will be valued for its neat Rhododendron-like

foliage, compact habit of growth, and for the conspicuous bark which is

of a warm reddish hue. The leaves are large and elliptic, six inches

long, and are rendered strangely conspicuous from the foot-stalks and

midrib being dull crimson, this affording a striking contrast to the

delicate green of the leaves. It grows freely in light sandy peat.

There are two well-marked forms, one named D. glaucescens viridis, in

which the red markings of the leaves are absent; and D. glaucescens

jezoensis, a pretty and uncommon variety.
