NESAEA SALICIFOLIA (_syn Heimia salicifolia_).--Mexico, 1821. This can

only be styled as half hardy, but with wall protection it forms a pretty

bush often fully a yard in height. The leaves resemble those of some

species of Willow, being long and narrow, while the showy yellow flowers

are freely produced in August and September. It thrives best when

planted in light, dry soil, and in a sheltered position.
