Idesia






IDESIA POLYCARPA (_syns Flacourtica japonica_ and _Polycarpa

Maximowiczii_).--A Japanese tree of small growth, and only introduced to

this country in 1866. It is a handsome, hardy species, bearing large,

bright-green leaves with conspicuous crimson footstalks, often 4 inches

across, and of a glaucous tint on the under sides. The deliciously

fragrant flowers are greenish-white or yellowish-green, and produced in

graceful drooping racemes. In southern England it does well, and, being

a tree of unusual beauty of both leaves and flowers, is well worthy of

attention. Rich loam, not too stiff, will grow the Idesia well.
