CALOPHACA WOLGARICA.--Siberia, 1786. This member of the Pea family is

of dwarf, branching growth, thickly clothed with glandular hairs, and

bears yellow flowers, succeeded by reddish-purple pods. It is of no

special importance as an ornamental shrub, and is most frequently seen

grafted on the Laburnum, though its natural easy habit of growth is far

preferable. Hailing from Siberia, it may be considered as fairly hardy

at least.
