GRABOWSKIA BOERHAAVIAEFOLIA.--Peru, 1780. This is occasionally to be

seen in sheltered and favoured gardens, but it is not to be relied upon

in other than southern and seaside districts. The plant is of no

particular interest to the cultivator, the outline being ungainly, while

the pale blue flowers are both dull and uninteresting. It belongs to the

Solanum family, and is only worth cultivating as a curiosity. Light,

warm soil and a sunny position are necessities in the cultivation of

this shrub.
