The myrtle, periwinkle, or, to speak

The magnolia Is indeed the city garden?

bo well, gives gUCh a feast of beauty, oi?
ls so deservedly popular for planting in
front yards and side courts where sun?
light rarely penetrates and where smoke
and dust ;u-e additional obstacles to the
growth of every living thing.
There are two distinct types of mag?

that bloom after the. leaves appear. Of

most conspicuous among them being M

of these are chsractsrlsed by petals of

The species that bloom after the leaves

cause the floral effect is slightly hidden

because b.v the time they bloom other

PUZZLES SOLVED
FOR OUR READERS
I iMii coming to \"ii for advice about
pel the development of which has
baffled ma for some time, ft is a small
yard (1 by 12 feet), bordered on two
Hides by a prlvei hedgo, vvith street
frontage overahadowed by maple tree?.
which make? n almosl Impoaalble to
- ?--, 11 is now- occupied by a
rocker: of ferna and wood planta which
gi ? ? lendidly, hut the rockery la an
< ? -, m its construction.
What 1 have th.mght of was to trans?
form the rockery Into a Japanese par?
den using larga rocka on the two long
aidea In two irregular rows, leaving
apacea for .-mar or dwarf apsclmena of
azalea and Japanese maple and a Blisbt
|y raised stairway of flat stones leading
to one large rook at the back. At the
foot of the stairway would be a pool
mink iltghtly below the ground level and
with an outlet to the cesspool. Wista?
ria ? ould be trained over the picket fence
at the back and over tho large rock.
Have you any criticisms of this plan
or a?l\ice regarding it.'
MISS L M. C
In the first place, the space Is really
too small for any landscape feature ?such
as a Japsnese garden should be. Sec?
ondly, two of the characteristics of such
I type of garden are (a > privacy, and ?
'hi tha adaptation of the arrangement
of rock?, steps, pool, etc., to the natural
lay or the land. Now, as ? see it, the
?tree! front??*? damtroya any haape of
privacy, while an* variation in the sor?
face of the garden or the "Isj of the
land" would have to be created arti?
ficially
Another point is that a privet h?:?Ige
i. a veritable glutton and on such a
-mall space is undoubtedly taking so
much of the food and moisture from
the soil that many plants and shrubs
would not thrive in the yard.
if, however, the ferns and woodland
planta du wall, why n?it grow them and
similar -..?? - BSively and do away
With the rockery entirely, leaving ?sim?
ply S irai "woodland garden." You
could easily make little mounds and
nooks on and in which to grow favorite '
? reeper- or dainty herbaceous plants like
