Piptanthus






PIPTANTHUS NEPALENSIS (_syn Baptisia nepalensis_).--Evergreen Laburnum.

Temperate Himalaya, 1821. A handsome, half-hardy shrub, of often fully

10 feet high, with trifoliolate, evergreen leaves, and terminal racemes

of large yellow flowers. In the south and west of England and Ireland it

does well, and only receives injury during very severe winters. Planted

either as a single specimen, or in clumps of three or five, the

evergreen Laburnum has a pleasing effect, whether with its bright,

glossy-green leaves, or abundance of showy flowers. It is of somewhat

erect growth, with stout branches and plenty of shoots. Propagated from

seed, which it ripens abundantly in this country.
