Flower of the Haage-clone.

Hildor Hoffmann's photo of the flower of the "Durban-clone".

   This member of the Asclepiadaceae* family was described by Friedrich Richard Rudolf Schlechter in 1894. It's found in the southern part of Africa, growing in a well-drained soil with little water and some sun. The bulbs can grow to  five centimetres, and one clone over 10 centimetres in diameter. The vines more than two meters long. The flowers are white/pink, and it can be reproduced both by cuttings, seeds and bulbs. I found mine on Amager in 2003. The leaves will get thicker when kept dry.

*This family might been incorporated in the Apocynaceae family now.
