Dirca






DIRCA PALUSTRIS.--Leather Wood. North America, 1750. A much-branched

bush, of quite a tree-like character, but rarely more than 3 feet high.

To the Daphnes it is nearly allied, and is close in resemblance; but

there is a curious yellowish hue pervading the whole plant. The flowers

are produced on the naked shoots in April, and are rendered conspicuous

by reason of the pendent yellow stamens. They are borne in terminal

clusters of three or four together. It delights to grow in a cool,

moist soil, indeed it is only when so situated that the Leather Wood

can be seen in a really thriving condition.
