This beautiful shrub, whose large flowers are of a cream colour, deserves a place in the collection of every admirer of ornamental shrubs. It has generally been considered as a distinct genus ; but I follow Dr. Smith's observations in Exotic Botany, considering it always unnecessary to split a small genus on slight differences, though the same differences might be sufficient reasons for establishing a distinction where the genus is numerous.
