Periploca






PERIPLOCA GRAECA.--Poison Vine. South Eastern Europe, and Orient, 1597.

A tall, climbing shrub, with small, ovate-lanceolate leaves, and

clusters of curious purplish-brown, green-tipped flowers produced in

summer. The long, incurved appendages, in the shape of a crown, and

placed so as to protect the style and anthers, render the flowers of

peculiar interest. Though often used as a greenhouse plant, it is

perfectly hardy, and makes a neat, deciduous wall or arch covering,

thriving to perfection in rich soil that is well-drained. It is readily

propagated from cuttings.
