MACLURA AURANTIACA.--Osage Orange, or Bow-wood. North America, 1818.

This is a wide-spreading tree with deciduous foliage, and armed with

spines along the branches. The leaves are three inches long, ovate and

pointed, and of a bright shining green. Flowers rather inconspicuous,

being green with a light tinge of yellow, and succeeded by fruit bearing

a resemblance when ripe to the Seville orange. It is hardy, and grows

freely in rather sandy or gravelly soil.
