MESSRS. JAMES VEITCH & SONS, LTD.

CAN SUPPLY THE FOLLOWING RARE AND BEAUTIFUL

Japanese Magnolias,

Which are among the finest recent additions to the British Arboretum,
and especially desirable for the Lawn and Park, whether as single
specimens or in groups.

Magnolia Hypoleuca.

One of the largest of the deciduous Magnolias. The flowers are creamy
white, measuring from six to seven inches in diameter when fully
expanded, deliciously fragrant, and produced in large numbers on the
adult tree, and even on young plants their appearance is quite a usual
occurence. In the autumn the tree is loaded with cones of brilliant
scarlet fruit, six to eight inches long. The large obovate leaves are
often a foot in length and half, as much broad. Our Mr. JAMES H. VEITCH
during his recent journeys in Japan frequently met with it at
considerable elevations, and considers it the finest flowering tree in
that country.

First Class Certificate, Royal Horticultural Society.

Magnolia Parviflora.

A smaller tree than the preceding, and one of the finest lawn trees
ever introduced. It has a handsome deciduous foliage; the leaves are of
ovate-oblong shape, rather sharply pointed, and from five to six inches
long. The flowers, which are freely produced, are smaller than those of
_M. hypoleuca_ and with more oval segments, of which the outer three
are light purplish pink, and the inner three milk-white.

An excellent coloured plate of this species is published in _The
Garden_ of December 8th, 1883, page 508.

Magnolia Watsonii.

A very fine Magnolia, resembling the preceding in habit and foliage,
but in its flowers approaching nearer to _M. hypoleuca_. These are from
five to six inches in diameter, cream colour on the inside, and
exhaling a pleasant perfume like that of Calycanthus. The broad ring of
incumbent yellow stamens, with blood-red filaments, is a conspicuous
ornament of the expanded flower.

A beautiful coloured plate of this species is given in the _Botanical
Magazine_, tab. 7,157.

Well established young plants of each of the above Magnolias, 7s. 6d.
and 10s. 6d. each.
