The roots smell like potatoes ; and both roots and stalks, upon being chewed, first cause a sensation of bitterness, which is soon followed by a considerable degree of sweetness, whence the specific name. The berries are poisonous; and, as they are common in hedges, they...
Page 764 - A tall bushy-headed tree, with the branches set on obliquely, somewhat crossing each other, not continued in a straight line outwards from the trunk ; by which character, Sir JE Smith observes, it may readily be distinguished even in winter. Britain ; common in hedges.

Page 419 - Saskatchawan, where its wood is prized by the Cree Indians for making arrows and pipe stems; and it is thence termed by the Canadian voyagers bois de fleche. Its berries, which are about the size of a pea, are the finest fruit in the country; and are used by the Cree Indians both in a fresh and in a dried state. They " make excellent puddings, very little inferior to plum-pudding.
Page 603 - It rises from ten to twenty feet high, and forms, with its elegant foliage and large abundant rose-coloured flowers, the finest ornamental shrub I know. The flowers are not so much pubescent as the rest of the species ; the scales of the flower-buds are large, yellowish-brown, surrounded with a fringed white border.
Page 729 - The white elm delights in low humid situations. The wood is used for the same purposes as that of the European elm, but it is decidedly inferior in strength and hardness; it has also less compactness, and splits more readily. Propagated by grafting on U. montana, but not common in collections.
