PITTOSPORUM TOBIRA.--Japan, 1804. This forms a neat, evergreen shrub,

with deep green, leathery leaves, and clusters of white, fragrant

flowers, each about an inch in diameter. It is hardy in the more

favoured parts of the south and west of England, where it makes a

reliable seaside shrub.

P. UNDULATUM, from Australia (1789), is also hardy against a wall, but

cannot be depended upon generally. It is a neat shrub, with wavy leaves,

that are rendered conspicuous by the dark midribs. They grow well in any

good garden soil.
