Hedysarum






HEDYSARUM MULTIJUGUM.--South Mongolia. Hardly ten years have elapsed

since this pretty shrub was introduced into England, so that at present

it is rather rare in our gardens. It is a decided acquisition, if only

for the production of flowers at a time when these are scarce. Usually

the flowering time is in August, but frequently in the first weeks of

October the pretty flowers are still full of beauty. It is of bushy

habit, from 4 feet to 5 feet high, with oblong leaflets, in number from

twenty to thirty-five, which are Pea-green above and downy on the under

sides. Flowers bright red, and produced in axillary racemes. It is

perfectly hardy, and grows freely in porous decomposed leaf-soil.
