This group consists mostly of shrubs which are indigenous to the section of the country where they are used. These plants are adapted to plantations on a large or small scale, where a feeling of formality or of definite refinement of detail is not required. It is difficult to differentiate fully between the two groups in this chapter. A number of shrubs may equally well, under expert selection and placing, be used in either group interchangeably.
