Lespedeza






LESPEDEZA BICOLOR (_syn Desmodium penduliflorum_).--North China and

Japan. A little-known but beautiful small-growing shrub, of slender,

elegant growth, and reaching, under favourable culture, a height of

about 6 feet. The leaves are trifoliolate, small, and neat, and the

abundant racemes of individually small, Pea-shaped flowers are of the

richest and showiest reddish-purple. Being only semi-hardy will account

for the scarcity of this beautiful Japanese shrub, but having stood

uninjured in all but the coldest parts of these islands should induce

lovers of flowering shrubs to give it a fair chance.
