Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...be, the Taylor-Narbonne has a resistance to calcareous soils comparable and even superior to most Riparia x Rupestris. It may, therefore, from this poiut of view, be used in reconstitution. Despetis, who studied it during many years, thinks it has a high phylloxeric resistance; it is certainly superior to that of 8olonis. Figure 73 shows very clearly the characters of the leaf of Taylor-Narbonne, which are much more carved out than that of Taylor. This cepage is vigorous, its cuttings root freely, knit well with most European vines, and give fructiferous grafts. If its resistance to phylloxera is proved, it will ultimately be used in the same surroundings as Solonis was formerly and also in poor sandy soils free from salt. Hybrids of V. Californica and V. Arizonica.--These hybrids are very numerous; a scale of successive forms intermediate between the two species has been found. They have almost always been introduced into France under the name of pure Californica or pure Arizonica, and have remained in collections; they are inferior in vigour to the Californica, and in resistance to the Arizonica. They seem to require richer soil than the latter, and are, therefore, of no interest. They succumb to chlorosis, like the Rupestris. Hybrids of V. Candicans and V. Berlandieri.--On account of the co-existence of Candicnns and Berlandieri on the banks of the rivers and hills of Texas, on account also of the almost continuous florescence of the latter, a great number of hybrids have been produced, in the wild state, between these two species. Intermediate between these two species are found, and almost in infinite number, many forms of Berlandieri, with abundant woolly hair on the young leaves and young shoots, considered thus far as pure; they...show more
