. The natural history of the farm : a guide to the practical study of the sources of our living in wild nature . Natural history. NATURAL HISTORY OP THE FARM (Celastrus scandens) is perhaps the tallest of these, and has the best development of woody stems. It grows on dry wooded hills. The moonseed (Menispermum canadense) is a half-woody twiner that overruns the bushes in moist lowland thickets. It is one of the best of vines for shady. Fig. 122. Bittersweet, with fruit unopened. places, and it has beautiful foliage. The large scalloped leaves overlap one another from the top to the ground like the slates on a roof. There are herbaceous twiners on the taller bushes also, like the bindweeds and the hops. And the balsam-apple (Echinocystis lobata) climbs by neat tendrils of singular efficiency. And virgin's-bower (Clematis virginiana) and other species of Clematis, climb by twisting the stalks of leaf and leaflet about stems for support..
