I am diffident About suggesting
varieties of shrubs tor planting
there are so very, many that are
beautiful and each has its own
uses. I will divide the subject and
first tell you about the ornament
al fruited sorts. I happen to be
Interested in the "double duty"
shrubs, the shrub which, furnish
es flowers one season and color
ful berries or foliage in another
Beason. Many of these fruits make
excellerit jellies and conserves.
Others have no such use. but will
attract flocks of birds to the prem
ises. Still others merely give color
to the garden during a season
when that color is very welcome.
In the ornamental fruited
group Is the viburnum family
which oddly enough at least to
me, ranges from the snowball to
the Laurus tinus.; '$ jrg---
' The American, Cranberrybush,
one of the . so-called Highbush
cranberry shrubs' is " one of the
very useful viburnums. It reaches
approximately ten feet, in height
at maturity, and. bears many clus
ters of brilliant red fruit. We
also have the dwarf cranberry
bush Opulus nanum ) 1 growing
but two feet high. This is com
pact and small-leaved, a very lov
ely little shrub. The Sargent cran
berrybush, growing some nine or
ten feet tall, with showy broad
foliage is also included in this
group, y . -
Another shrub family which of
fers considerable beauty and even
more use, is the Vaccinium, known
as the blueberry. The . Highbush
blueberry (corym bosum) six to
ten feet. Is an excellent ornamen
tal shrub, and, of course, it ber
ries are delightful. The Blueridge
blueberry (V. pallidum) less tall.
is equally ornamental, and' quite
prolific as to fruit And there is
the Lowbush blueberry (Pennsyl
vanium) with Us delicious orna
mental fruit and brilliant autumn
colorings. This variety seldom
reaches over two feet in height.
The Pernettya mucronata, fam
iliarly called the South American
huckleberry. Is a lovely low-growing
shrub, literally covered with
fruit about the size of a cran
berry. The foliage. Itself, Is ever
green and almost heatherlike. The
pernettya comes in colors from
pure white, pink, scarlet and deep
maroon. The white variety resem
bles a super-snowberry. For some
years there has been a display of
these shrubs at the Pacific Inter
national Livestock exhibition gar
den division, and always this has
attracted much attention. The
pernettya Is a wee bid finicky. It
likes its soU sandy and acid, and
it the weather drops below sero
it needs some protection. The soil
must be just right or the berries
will not develop as well as they
should for the beauty of the bush.
The fruit is edible. There Is at
least :. one company at Portland
which has been able to grow the
pernettya to perfection. X believe
it pays to- get a good shrub to
start with, - particularly in the
case" of pernettyas.- ,. ;
i The i wild snowberry vwe have
here can be extremely beautiful
if properly -cared for. Care must
be taken to keep the suckers down
or one will soon have more snow
berries in the garden than he an
ticipated. But the snowberry is
not much worse to Increase in
number than is the common pur
ple lilac, and the snowberry is
very lovely both in the garden and
In bouquets. I remember the first
time I saw: sno wherries in culti

on Puget Sound. He had planted
them as a foreground to a hedge
of low growing evergreens. What

Tney were had to mildew, he told
me, and unless sprayed properly,
many of the berries would drop
off and others wonld turn, black.
They certainly repaid him la beau
ty for the extra trouble.
Then we have the wild currant,
the blossoms of which are red la
this community and yellow in some
places. I have been told that the
yellow-blooming currants were at
one time common here, but I have
never found one growing "native
