Rhaphiolepis






RHAPHIOLEPIS JAPONICA INTEGERRIMA (_syn R. ovata_).--A Japanese shrub

(1865), with deep green, ovate, leathery leaves that are not over

abundant, and produced generally at the branch-tips. The pure white,

fragrant flowers are plentifully produced when the plant is grown in a

cosy corner, or on a sunny wall. Though seldom killed outright, the

Raphiolepis becomes badly crippled in severe winters. It is, however, a

bold and handsome shrub, and one that may be seen doing well in many

gardens around London.
