Garrya Elliptica hardy evergreen shrub


Garrya Elliptica hardy evergreen shrubThe Garrya Elliptica is a hardy evergreen shrub, which is very suitable in its early stages for pot-culture. A light, loamy soil is what it likes. Cuttings taken in August and placed in sand under a hand-glass will strike freely, but it is most readily increased by layers.

In October it bears graceful yellowish-green tassels of flowers from the ends of its shoots. Their height is about 6 feet.
