Eucryphia






EUCRYPHIA PINNATIFOLIA.--Chili, 1880. This shrub, is as yet rare in

cultivation, and is not suited for the colder or more exposed parts of

the country. It is, however, a singularly distinct and beautiful shrub,

with deep glossy-green, pinnate foliage, and bearing large, pure white

flowers, that are rendered all the more conspicuous by the

golden-yellow anthers. As an ornamental shrub it is well worthy of

cultivation. In so far as its hardihood in this climate has to do, it

may be mentioned that in various parts of England and Ireland it has

stood in the open ground unharmed for several years back. Light, sandy,

well drained peat would seem to meet with its requirements.
