ADENOCARPUS DECORTICANS (_syn A. Boissieri_).--Spain, 1883. This little

known hardy shrub, a native of the Sierra Nevada mountains, in Spain, is

one of great beauty, and well worthy of extended culture. The flowers

are produced abundantly, and are of a bright yellow colour, resembling

those of our common Broom, to which family it is nearly allied. Peaty

soil suits it well, and repeated trials have clearly proved that it is

hardy, at least in the South of England.
