Garrya






GARRYA ELLIPTICA.--California, 1818. This is a handsome shrub, with dark

green coreaceous leaves, resembling very nearly those of the Evergreen

Oak. The long, tassellated catkins, of a peculiar yellowish-green

colour, render the plant one of much interest and beauty. As a wall

plant it thrives well, the slight protection thus afforded favouring the

growth and expansion of the catkins. For planting in the shrubbery it is

also well suited, and where it oft-times attains to a height of 6 feet,

and is bushy in proportion. It is well to bear in mind that there are

male and female plants of the Garrya, and that the former is the more

ornamental. Good rich, well-drained loam will suit this shrub well.
