Said by Mr. Don to be derived from vinco, because the species subdue other plants by their creeping roots; but Mr. Loudon appears to prefer the derivative vinculum, a band, on account of the suitableness of the shoots for the purpose of making bands. The hardy ligneous species, are creeping evergreens, natives of Europe, and easily cultivated by layers. N.O. Apocynacea. L. S. Pentandria Monogynia. V. minor coerulea

Mr. Loudon informs us, that this interesting tree was so named by Lamarck in honour of the Latin poet, Virgil, whose Georgics entitle him to botanic commemoration. It is a deciduous tree, and there is but one hardy species, as mentioned below. The wood is remarkable for its yellow colour, and the fineness of its grain—the flowers are white and pendulous, rather larger in size than those of the Robinia Pseud-Acacia, but not possessed of their odour. N. O. Leguminosa. L. S. Decandria Monogynia.
The merits of this beautiful tree, and of its luxurious fruit, are too well known to require much explanation. The genus Vitis is found in the equinoctial parts of the Old and New worlds, extending into both the temperate zones, southward of the Cape of Good Hope and New Holland, and northwards to Japan and North America, as well as from the plains of
India to the defiles of Caucasus. N. O. Vitacere. L. S.

ZANTHORRHIZA-THE YELLOW Root.
Derived from the Greek words, xanthos, yellow, and rhiza, a root. A small shrub with purple coloured flowers, principally indigenous to the banks of rivers, from Virginia to Georgia. It was first introduced into this country in 1776. N. O. Ranunculacea. L. S. Polyandria Mono-Trigynia. 2. Aprifolia.
ZANTHOXYLON—The ToothACHE TREE.
The derivatives are xanthos, yellow, and xylon, wood. The French name signifies Club Tree, and the German name Toothache Tree. It is a low deciduous tree, native of North America from Canada to Virginia, in woods near rivers. The flowers are of a yellow colour, and the bark and capsules are used as a remedy for the toothache, and for rheumatic complaints. It is propagated by seeds, or by cuttings. N. O. Xanthoxylaceæ. L. Š. Diccia Tri-Pentandria. z. fraxinifolium
