Araucaria Cones

Naturevolume 43page29 (1890) | Download Citation



IN reply to the Duke of Argyll's inquiries (NATURE, November 6, p. 8), we have an Araucaria in our garden, now about 20 feet high, which bore barren cones first in the summer of 1889. We have also a seedling Araucaria, one of several grown from seeds from large seed-bearing cones gathered from the avenue of Araucarias in the late Lady Rolle's grounds at Bicton Park, near Budleigh Salterton, in 1878, at which time they were abundant on the splendid trees forming the avenue.
