The caudex.

   This member of the Bixaceae family was described by Thomas Archibald Sprague and Lawrence Athelstan Molesworth Riley in 1922. It is found in the Southern part of North America, growing in lime- or granite gravel, in about 1.500 meters height with some water and lots of sun. The tuberous roots can grow to two centimetres in diameter, the leaves to eight centimetres height. The flowers are orange, and it is probably only possible to reproduce it by seeds.

Former member of the Cochlospermaceae family, now joined with the Bixaceae family. Now the Bixaceae has moved from Violales order to the Malvales.
