Erica tumida Ker Gawl.


Family: Ericaceae

Genus: Erica


From Bot. Reg. It requires, like all the congeners from that part of the world, to be cultivated in sandy peat-mould, and sheltered from frost in an airy light greenhouse. We have seen no specimens of it much above a foot high, and even such are as yet very rare.


From Bot. Reg. Introduced, we understand, about three or four years ago by Mr. Niven, from the Cape of Good Hope.

First published in the Botanical Register.Published in Bot. Reg. 1: 65 in 1815.
