MENISPERMUM CANADENSE.--Moonseed. North America, 1691. This shrub is

principally remarkable for the large, reniform, peltate leaves, which

are of value for covering pergolas, bowers and walls. The flowers are of

no great account, being rather inconspicuous and paniculate. It is hardy

in most places, and is worthy of culture for its graceful habit and

handsome foliage.
