HARDY DECIDUOUS SHRUBS. or those shrubs which will stand the winter in the open air without protection, but which lose their leaves every Autumn. ALLSPICE, JAPAN—Chimonanthus Fragrans, Or CALYCANTHUS PR.liCOX. Linn. Icosandria Polygynia. Nat. Calycanthete This is the true Allspice of commerce, and though hardy, it is well deserving of a place in the conservatory. Its small yellowish red flowers are delightfully fragrant, but as they appear very early in the spring, and before the leaf, they are liable to be nipped by the frosts, if not protected. It grows to the height of about six feet, but forms rather a straggling Inish and on that account is often trained against a wall. ALLSPICE, CAROLINA—Calycanthus Floridus. Linn. Icosandria Polygynia. Nat. Calycanthete. The flowers of this plant greatly resemble those of the true Allspice in scent; but they are larger and of a chocolate colour. It is propogated by layers, and thrives best in a mixture of loam and peat. AZALEA, VISCID—Azalea Tiscosa. Linn. Pentandria Monogynia. Nat. Rhodoracea. There are several varieties of this species of Azalea, all of which may be distinguished by the sticky substance which covers their flowers, but the common white, var: odorata is the sweetest, though perhaps the pink var: fissa is the most delicate flower. They are all American plants of great beauty, well adapted for pots, and for forcing early in the Spring: and as they never exceed three feet in height, they are excellent for the front rows of a shrubbery. They may be propagated by layers, and prefer a peaty soil, or a mixture of dark sandy loam, and leaf mould. Several varieties of the red-flowered and also of the yellow-flowered Azalea are sweet, and all are highly esteemed border plants. AZAROLE, SWEET-SCE...
