THE JAPANESE FOREST.
professor BAltOENTl new book.
THE FORKST FI.ORA OF .IAPAN. By fharlaa
Sprague Sargent. Plrector of the Arnold arao
retum. of Harvard rnlveraity. Boaton and New
Vork: HO-ghtOB, Mlfflin & Co. 1*94.
Th* flora ot Japan haa an enpeelal lntereat for
Amerl<-ans, alnoe we hav been told ao nften Of
the cloae analng>- between the vagetation of
theae islands and that of the northeastern part
of the l'nlted Statea. lt wai thiB Blmllarlty
whlch suggested to Dr. Oray the explanatlon of
the w?y in which planta were dlatrtbuted through
th* north.rn hemlsphere In dlrect des<-ent from
anceators whlch lnhabited the Aretlc regiona
during the last tertlary period. Profeeaor Sar?
gent tella us. however. that the oplnlon whlch
haa prevailed that an Amerlcan flnda much that
ia homellke in the natural foreet growth of the.ae
Islands ls an erroneoua one. It la true that the
traillng arbutus would remlnd one of MeW?
England and Shortla would reoall the mountalns
of North Carollna If theae planta were not so rare
In Japan. Neverthelese. there are enough specles
so closely related ln the two- countrles aa to snb
atantiate the general Impression that the plartts
which thrive in one will dourlsh ln the other.
The popular reaaon asslgned for this ia that both
countrles fac* an oc*an lylng to the eaat. wlth
coast llnes and deep sea ouirents of slmilar trend
and prevaillng wlnds from the name dlrectlon. bo
that the condltiona of rlimate whlch have dlrect
Influence on the llfe and health of plants are
almilar. The Japaneae marles. lindens and dr-g
woods, birches and .-hestnuts. aldera and poplars,
magnollas and buekeyes, plnes and hemlooks and
larchcs. although they dlffer from our own
speeies. have been developed under condltiona
so slmilar that they will generally thrive here.
In fact, lt is well known that the trees, shrubs
and plants of Eastern Asla are much more cer
taln to make themselves at home when trans
planted here than are our nearer neighbors on
tbe Paclflc CoaBt; whlle the trees of Oallfornla
will take more kindly to the cllmate of Weatern
F.urope than to our own beoause these two re
gions stand geographloally in the name relatlon
to the great seas and the current* of water and
of wlnd.
But what gives a greater popular lntereat to
the flora of Japan is that so many flowerinK
Hhrubs and herbs ln our gardens are known as
Japanese. although many of them really orlgin
ated in Chtna, Corea or some other part of East
ern Asia, and only reached this country by way
of Japan. One of the commonest flowering plants
in our herbaceous borders In early spring is the
ghowy dUentra or dielytra. as lt is pupuiarly
called. and this is followed by stately Japanese
lilles and irises, wlth the tall and graee
ful lespedeza ln the autumn and the Jap?
anese anemone, one of the lovellest of
garden flowers. In our shrubberlea the
early flowering bush honeysuckles. half a
dozen splraeas. corylopsis. andromedas. barbor
rles, viburnums, hydrangeas and flowering plums
and appies. besides the beautiful rosa multiflora
wlth actlnidias. matrimonv vine, euonymus,
wisteria and many other climbing plants, are
natlvea of the dlstant East. Slnce we already
have so many Japanese plants at home lt ls
no wonder that every one who has heard of this
similarity in the botany of the two countrles
has readlly believed the travellers who have in
sisted that there is a striklng resemblanoe be?
tween the general features of the vegetation
there and here. But Professor Sargent points
oul many dlfTerences ln the einstitution Ol the
natural woods whlch are atlll standing in Japan
and our own vlrgln foreats; while the forest un
dergnwth ls altogether unlike ln the two coun?
trles. Amerieans at oneo wlll mlss the huekl*
berrles and hlueberrteo. the kalmtas and cornelB
and dwarf eherries and lycopodlums which car
p*t our woodlands wlth such beauty, and he will
ftnd instead among the tra s a close and almost
impenetrable thioket of dwarf bambooa. Only a
few vigorous undershrubs ean maintain them
se:ve* agalnst these aggresslve grarses and the
woods therefore have a strange forelgn look. All
theae points of !:kene<.s and disslmllarlty are aet
forth it. a very lnstruc.ive way and make a
fitting prelude to the desr-rtptions of the vatiou*
families of trees whlch are then takon up in their
bdanical order.
It sh<-.uld be said here that this book ls pre
oisely what its title indicates. The author doea
not seem to have been infected with the
Japanese ar: dlsease whlch absolutoly un
hts most visltors to that Empire f..r any
contemplation of nature. and If he con
siders a burried Journey through theae
i?lands an adeejuate preparation for a treatiae on
the m.iral characteriatlcs of the natives or nf the
I art which the empire is destlnsd to play in the
coming history of the world, he has ex
ercised uncommon Belf-restralnt and post
I r.nod these for some future work. The
book is concerned solely with the trees
and shrubs of the Japa.iese forest; it was orig
inally prepared for "Garden and Forest." a Jour
nal devoted tO kindred sublects. and the reprlnt
includes the ful!-page illustratlons which ap
peared with the origlnal lotters. The subjeet Is
by no means haokneyed, although rnany of the
famous botanists of the world have oolleeted in
these islands, for It ls only wlrhin a few years
that travellers have been able to do more than
vlslt the cirles and gardons of the country wlth?
out explorlng any of Its wilder interior reglons.
Besides no traveller In these Islands has eVer
been bo well prepared in the botany of trees and
shruba as ProfeBaor Sargent, who has devoted
hlmaelf for yeara to study ln thlB Bpeclal
neld in the preparptlon of ht~ work on the "Sllva
ot North America" and in collectlng materlal for
the Arnold Arnoretum. whlch ls to lnclude every
woody plant that wlll grow In the cllmate of
Eastern North America. It Ib this abundant and
famillar knowledge of his subjeet and of the en
tire range of related subjects that broadens out
the interest of Profeaaor Sargent's book bo that it
takes hold of the attentlon of any reader who
carea In the leaat for any arborescent growth
whether in forest or in park. whether cultlvated
ln prlvate grounds or growing at wlll by the
way.*ide. No popular account of many of the trees
h*re flgured and deserlbed has ever before been
published. Many othera. whlch have heretc.fore
been known as herbarium specimens only. have
been ldentlfled in the fleld ind flgured, and what
is of more lmmedlate importance the seeds of
many trees and shrubs entlrely new or new to
cultlvatlon have been brought home and planted
in the arboretum or dlstrlbuted among the bo
tanlc gardens and leadlng nurserles of Bnrope
and America. Only actual trlal on our soll wlll
demonstrate how many of these plants wlll be
found adapted to use in our groves and gardens,
but the ample not*B as t> thelr habits and thelr
home aurroundlngn contalned In thla volume wlll
be of great analstance in determlning when or
how they ean be used to the be?t advantage.
After readtnaf the deaorlptlon of niagrmlla hypo
leuca, whlch ia the moet beautlful of the decid
uous. leaved magnollas ln Japan. one ia tempted
to remlnd the New-York reader that the flrst
tree of this klnd ever brought to America was
aent by thgt lndefatlgable collector, Thomaa
Hogg, and waa planted at the foot of Elghty
fourth-8t.. on the Eaat Rlver. ln thla clty, where
lt stlll Btanda. or at leaat dld atand a faw montha
ago. although It was ltable wlth many other
treaeures from Japan to be covered up as the
land about lt ls fllied ln. We may add that there
ls a wlllow-leaved magnolla. a beautlful p'.ant.
whlch haa never been lntroduced. but of whloh
Professor Sargent obtatned a supply of seed and
tindoubtedly thla wlll soon be found In Amerlcan
gardens. Of evergreen magnollaa, Ilke the blg
laurel cr bay of our Southern Statea, Japan
posBesaee none. but ther* are closely related
apecles of mlchelia which take their place and
whlch ought to flourlan aouth of Washlngton.
Among the other Interesting trees of this famlly
the moat Iroportant one Is cercldiphyllum. <>ne of
the great tlmber treee of the country. It has
alrrady beco'me aomewhat famillar ln.Amerlcan
parks and gardens. and as It rtows rapidly lt Ib
llkel.v to become of oonslderahle importanee in
ornamental plantatlons. As we have seen it here
It seems to have a somewhat forrnal hablt "f
growth, but the illustratlons of matur* trees in
this book ahow that they ean be hlghly pletur
oscjue. Passlng by the stately camellia* whi.-h ln
the forests of Japan ai. straight-stommed treeo
forty fael high. th'- stuartias, which Itaeilfhle the
white-flowered shrubs of the sanio gonus in our
? entral and southem States, the llnden;.. tho
graeeful stachyuru*. of which rar?- plant a c.1
xpecimen is now happy in Pmspeot Park. Broofc
lyn. the remarkable a.tinldlas. whioh niust prove
a strong reinfon-ement to our list of hardy
cllmbers. the priokly ashes. one of whi-h Pro
fes?or Sargent pronounoes equal in beauty of
hnbit tO any tree he saw, we eannot holp mon
tioning the hollles, of whlch there are a d. aen
evergreen specb-s, some of them lar^e
and stately treo* wlth great, glossy leavea
and brllllant with abundant fruit. Un
fortunately there is Uttle aaaurance that
any on* of them wlll prove hardy north of Waah
ington, for although many of tbe broad-leaved
evergreen Shrubs of Japan grow ln a latitmle
farthet north than that of Massaehusotts,
they rest in winter under a rover of BBOW, and
are therefore not expowd to such altertiati'.ns of
freezlng and thawlng. nor do th'-y enffer
bo much from the dr .u'.hs of BUmtner and BO
tumn as they would do here. There are other hol?
lles wlth deciduous leavea related to our c.mtnon
ecarlet-berrled black ald.r. whlch Wlll no doobt
thrive ln the Northern l'nlted States and belp to
Increase the beauty of OUl snrubberies In wlnter.
Of the euonymus or plants related to our -i.mr.i.-n
burnlng buah there ar? already BOtne Japan.se
spec-les In our gardens; the eommonest nnd rne
of tne most beautlful is the cllmbing one kBOWn
1 as Euonymus radlcans. This has been found very
i usefu! in thla country ai B C iverlng for walls.
and as Professor Sargent BBW it eafpetlng the
\ gtound in the foreeta of Hokkaldo and coverlng
j the trunks ..f treea with masses of iis iustr..us
foliago. it mn*t hav a rate attnutivn-s. A
relative of the ollmbing Wttereweet, wboae rrar
' let and oiange berrlos biighten our roadaldea in
i the autumn. ls eelastrus artl--ulata. This Is rare
in this country yet. but is one of the commoneal
plants in Japan. an.l its long, alender branchra,
coVered with briniantiy cotored frult, are aald In
autumn throughout all the Japaaeae cltlea for
the dec.ration of dwelluag-boueaa
Certain Japan maple*. mostly with deeply CUt
or strangely colore.i leavea, have been known
in this country fir more than twenty-livo yoars.
They nre K-nerally forms of Acer palmatuni. a
smoll round-headed tree whioh OOlorB as brlght
ly very late in autumn as oajroWB BCBTkH maple,
?a aii frequentera of irVoBpect Park ean near
witness. for near the lake there are two of the
flnest specimens of these trees now ln cultivat; m,
and thelr foliago is all allame when most. of our
native troes have dropped their loaves. Tne
lover of beautlful troe* will find much to dellgbt
him ln this chapter on the nupb-s. and he wlll be
particularly pleas.d to learn that some Bpedea as
yet unknown here wlll probably be v.-ry naeful
for ornamental plantlng. By a happy ehance
Professor Sargent gathered abundant seed of one
Of these, Acer myabei, an elegant tree . los-.-ly
related to the sveamore maple of Europe. and hy
another stroke of good fortune he sucoooded ln
gatheri"g seerls of Acer nikkoense. wMch be
longs to the ash-leaved section of maplea. and is
remarkable for the hrilllan.y of its autumn foli
age. enme of the Japanese sumarhs are already
known in our gardens. but none of them are more
beautlful than our own. Our ollmbing p leou
sumach or. as it is generally called, the DOlaon
lvy or mercury. is alao eommmi in Japan. ahere
it"festoons the tops of the tallest treea, and in
autumn lt is probably the bandeomeel vlne in tho
islands. The leaves grow thicker in that eoun
try than th*v do on the American f.rm; they are
larger too. more le.Uhery. and klndle into even
more glowlng colors. often to a ehade of lnten?
erimson whlch we never detael ln them here OJ
