KOELREUTERIA PANICULATA.--Northern China, 1763. Whether for its foliage

or flowers, this small-growing tree is worthy of a place. Though of

rather irregular growth, the beautiful foliage and large panicles of

yellowish flowers, which stand well above the leaves, make the shrub

(for it does not in this country attain to tree height), one of

particular interest, and a valuable aid in ornamental planting. In a

sheltered corner, and planted in rich soil, it grows and flowers freely.
