App. V. List of a few of the larger Specimens of exotic Heaths, cultivated in the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh; with their Dimensions, 8c., as taken from the Plants, 12th July, 1836. Communicated by Mr. M‘Nab. The use of this list is, to give an idea of what height the species will attain, if planted against a con. servative wall. In all probability, they would attain double the height, planted in the ground, and trained to a wall, of what they do as standards in pots or tubs in a glazed house. The wall ought to have an eastern or western aspect; in order to moderate the temperature of the hotter summer months, and to avoid the direct influence of the sun in spring and autumn, when the plants are covered with hoar-frost. The plants in the Edinburgh Botanic Garden are all known as Erìcæ, though we have given them Mr. Don's new names; but those who do not approve of these appellations, have only to substitute the word Erica for the new generic name, the specific names generally not having been changed; where both names have been changed, we have given the old ones in parentheses.
