LEIOPHYLLUM BUXIFOLIUM (_syns L. thymifolia, Ammyrsine buxifolia_ and

_Ledum buxifolium_).--Sand Myrtle. New Jersey and Virginia, 1736. This

is a dwarf, compact shrub from New Jersey, with box-like leaves, and

bunches of small white flowers in early summer. For using as a rock

plant, and in sandy peat, it is an excellent subject, and should find a

place in every collection.
