FREMONTIA CALIFORNICA.--California, 1851. A handsome and deciduous

Californian shrub, but scarcely hardy enough for the open air without

protection. In Southern England and Ireland, however, it does well, and

all the better if planted within the influence of the sea. The large

yellow flowers are often about 2 inches across, and produced singly

along the branches, while the leaves are large, lobed, and of an

enticing shade of green. Planted against a wall, in good dampish loam,

it succeeds well.
