As regards evergreens opinions are divided, some preferring August and September, others April or May.
Reflexa are beautiful evergreens, which are not very dissimilar in general aspect, and which without long dry scientific descriptions it would be impossible to distinguish.
A native of sandy places and cool damp woods from Canada to Virginia, and often found in the shade of evergreens, it does best in moist peat, and forms edgings to beds where the soil is of that nature, but it will also grow in loam.
Colensoi are also very pretty at Castlewellan and other gardens in districts with a climate allowing of the cultivation of the half-hardy evergreens.
The other species are not so important as flowering trees, though good evergreens where they will face the climate.
