This print is one of a series of illustrations made for J. F. Cathcart of the Bengal Civil Service in 1855. The plates were executed by W. H. Fitch and analysed by the famous botanist J. D. Hooker. The following is an excerpt from Hooker's description.

“The genus Vaccinium, which is mostly represented in northern climates by deciduous-leaved shrubs with small flowers, assumes a very different habit and appearance in the tropical mountains of both the Old and New World. The leaves of the Salignum species are used as a substitute for tea by the natives of Sikkim. It was discovered by Griffith in Bhotan, and found abundantly in Sikkim by Dr. Thomson and myself, inhabiting the limbs of lofty trees. ”
