Plagianthus






PLAGIANTHUS LYALLI, a native of New Zealand (1871), and a member of the

Mallow family, is a free-flowering and beautiful shrub, but one that

cannot be recommended for general planting in this country. At Kew it

does well and flowers freely on an east wall. The flowers are

snow-white, with golden-yellow anthers, and produced on the ends of the

last season's branchlets during June and July. The flower-stalks, being

fully 2 inches long, give to the flowers a very graceful appearance. In

this country the leaves are frequently retained till spring.



P. LAMPENI.--Van Dieman's Land, 1833. This is about equally hardy with

the former, and produces a great abundance of sweetly-scented flowers.



P. PULCHELLUS (_syn Sida pulchella_).--Australia and Tasmania. Another

half-hardy species, which bears, even in a young state, an abundance of

rather small, whitish flowers.
