Rhaphithamnus






RHAPHITHAMNUS CYANOCARPUS (_syn Citharexylum cyanocarpum_). Chili. This

bears a great resemblance to some of the thorny Berberis, and is at once

a distinct and beautiful shrub. The flowers are large and conspicuous,

and of a taking bluish-lilac colour. Having stood unharmed in Ireland

through the unusually severe winters of 1879-80, when many more common

shrubs were killed outright, it may be relied upon as at least fairly

hardy. The soil in which this rare and pretty shrub does best is a

brown, fibrous peat, intermingled with sharp sand.
