Picea.

The spruce tree

XXXV.

At picea emittas nullos qu˛d stirpe stolones,
Illius est index, qui sine prole perit.

But the spruce, because it sends up no shoots from its stock, is a symbol of the man who dies without progeny.

    Ilex.

    The holm-oak

    Duritie nimia[1] qu˛d sese rumperet ilex,
    Symbola civilis seditionis habet.

    Because the holm-oak splits spontaneously through excessive inflexibility, it provides symbols for civic discord.

    Notes:

    1. áDuritie nimia, ‘excessive inflexibility’. Cf. Pliny, Natural History, 16.73.186 (tota ossea est ilex, ‘the holm-oak is entirely bone-like’).
