The California Chinquapin as an Ornamental Tree
This beautiful specimen of the wild California chinquapin grows in Mr. Burbank's grounds at Sebastopol. Its flowers have been used extensively in hybridizing experiments in the course of Mr. Burbank's development of the hybrid chestnuts elsewhere described in this volume. But the chinquapin tree has obvious merits of its own as an ornamental shrub, as this picture clearly testifies.
