FLOWERING SHRUB. A striking feature of any garden, especially one of large dimensions, for its racemes of greyish catkin style blossom, 6 in. long and foiled by an intense dark and glossy foliage, form a picture seen to best advantage when given plenty of space. There are both male and female forms, the former being the more attractive. They prefer shelter from cold winds and make good porch or wall shrubs. A good ordinaiy soil suits them; they do not require a moist situation, and treated as described are hardy. Do not transplant. Take cuttings in late summer and strike in a frame. Garrya elliptica is the best known species, growing to about 10 ft.
