Trees and shrubs; an abridgment of the Arboretum et fruticetum britannicum: containing the hardy trees and shrubs of Britain, native and foreign, scientifically and popularly described; with their propagation, culture and uses and engravings of nearly all the species . ety hasbeen raised which grows only l^ft. high, andwhich Signor Cassoretti, the garden directorthere, calls AT. obovata jnhnila. A deciduous shrub, attaining, in the gardensabout London, the height of from 4 ft. to 8 ft. inas many years, and seldom growing much higheras a bush.
