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 . in Sep-tember. Decaying leaves retained long, and dying, off black. Variety. C. V. 2 corddta. C. cordsita Sims Bot.Mag.t. 1816., and our flg. 9. from that plate; Clem, Simsii Sweets Hort. Brit. This species is striking in the dissimilarity of itsflowers to those of most other species. It is of vigor-ous growth, and, exclusive of its flowers, assimilatesto C. Viticella; but its stems and branches are lessdecidedly ligneous. The stems are numerous, slender, and round; the peduncles of the flower are long, deflexed towards the tip, rendering the flowers pen-dulous ; the sepals never open, except at their ex-treme ends, which are bent back, giving the wholeflower a bell shape, but with the mouth of the bellnarrower than the body. The sepals are of a greenish purple or reddishlilac on the outside, and of a verypale green within. The stamens scarcelyemerge from the sepals. The carpels are broad and flat j as they ripen, thetail becomes bent in and plumose, and of a brownish green colour. It B 4. clematis Vitima corddta. ARBORETUM £T FRUTICETUM BRITANNICUM is most ornamental asa single plant, trainedto a rod or to a wireframe. As its branchesare not very decidedlyligneous or persistent, but consist mostly ofannual shoots from asufFruticose base, andare not much branched, the plant does not ex-hibit a bushy head. Itthrives best in bogearth, kept somewhatmoist, in which cir-cumstance it differsfrom most of thewoody species of Cle-matis. It may beincreased by layers, though not so readilyas from seeds, whichit produces in abund-ance. This species, C.cylindrica, and C. re-ticulata, being neithervery woody, nor veryluxuriant in growth, may all be treated asherbaceous plants, tobe supported duringthe flowering seasonby t
