Garrya Fremontii Torr. California Fever Bush. Skunk Bush.—The leaves of this bush (fam. Cornaceae), indigenous to California and Oregon, have an intensely bitter taste, and are said to be largely used by Californians as a tonic and anti-periodic. D. W. Ross (A. J. P., 1877) states that he found in them a new alkaloid, garryine. The dose of the fluidextract of the leaves is from ten to thirty minims (0.6-1.8 mils).
