An Ornamental from the Tropics
This is one of many unidentified shrubs which have been received by Mr. Burbank from foreign lands. Unfortunately it is often impossible for him to obtain the data necessary to identify plants so received. But all seeds, bulbs or roots sent him are invariably planted with the hope that some useful quality may develop.
