RHODOTYPOS KERRIOIDES.--White Kerria. Japan, 1866. A handsome deciduous

shrub, and one that is readily propagated, and comparatively cheap. It

is distinct and pretty when in flower, and one of the hardiest and most

accommodating of shrubs. The leaves are handsome, being deeply serrated

and silky on the under sides, while the pure white flowers are often

about 2 inches across. It grows about 4 feet in height, and is a very

distinct and desirable shrub.
