Desfontainea






DESFONTAINEA SPINOSA.--Andes from Chili to New Grenada, 1853. This is a

desirable shrub, and one that is perfectly hardy in most parts of the

country. It is a charming shrub of bold, bushy habit, with prickly

holly-like foliage, and scarlet and yellow, trumpet-shaped pendent

flowers, borne in quantity. The shelter of a wall favours the growth

and flowering of this handsome shrub, but it also succeeds well in the

open if planted in rich, light soil, and in positions that are not

exposed to cold and cutting winds.
