Solanum






SOLANUM CRISPUM.--Potato-tree. A native of Chili, 1824, and not very

hardy, except in the coast regions of England and Ireland. It grows

stout and bushy, often in favoured places rising to the height of 12

feet, and has large clusters of purple-blue flowers that are succeeded

by small, white berries. This is a decidedly ornamental shrub, that

should be cultivated wherever a suitable place can be spared. It bears

hard pruning back with impunity, and succeeds in any light, rich, loamy

soil.



S. DULCAMARA.--Bitter Sweet, and Woody Nightshade. This is a native

plant, and one of great beauty when seen clambering over a fence, or

bank. It has long, flexuous stems, and large clusters of purple flowers,

which are made all the more conspicuous by the showy yellow anthers. The

scarlet fruit is very effective.
