Leycesteria






LEYCESTERIA FORMOSA, from Nepaul (1824), is an erect-growing, deciduous

shrub, with green, hollow stems, and large ovate, pointed leaves of a

very deep green colour. The flowers are small, and white or purplish,

and produced in long, pendulous, bracteate racemes from the axils of

the upper leaves. It is one of the most distinct and interesting of

hardy shrubs, the deep olive-green of both stem and leaves, and

abundantly-produced and curiously-shaped racemes, rendering it a

conspicuous object wherever planted. Perfectly hardy, and of free,

almost rampant growth in any but the stiffest soils. Cuttings root

freely and grow rapidly.
