   This member of the Scrophulariaceae family was given this name by Francis Whittier Pennell in 1947. It is found around 1000 meter height in Mexico, growing in a well drained soil with quite some water in summer and next to nothing in winter. Plenty of sun, and it will get lots of pink (rare form: white) flowers. The caudex can grow to ten centimetres or more, the vines will reach for two to three meters.

Also seen as a member of the Plantaginaceae  family.

And this is my own.
