CHOISYA TERNATA.--Mexican Orange Flower. Mexico, 1825. A beautiful and

distinct shrub that succeeds well in the south and west of England. The

evergreen leaves are always fresh and beautiful, and of a dark shining

green, while the sweetly-fragrant flowers are produced freely on the

apices of last year's wood. They have a singular resemblance to those

of the orange, and on the Continent are commonly grown as a substitute

for that popular flower. The plant succeeds well in any light, rich

soil, and soon grows into a goodly-sized shrub of 4 feet or 5 feet in

height. As a wall plant it succeeds well, but in warm, maritime

situations it may be planted as a standard without fear of harm.

Cuttings root freely if placed in slight heat.
