   This member of the Asclepiadaceae* family was first described by Arthur Allman Bullock in 1953. It is found in Kenya and Tanzania, growing in well-drained soil or grit, in a sunny position. You should give it plenty of water during the growing season, and keep it dry when dormant. As you can see is the flowers greenish. The plant can be propagated by seeds, and might also be propagated by cuttings as well? Found mine at Specks 2003. ES 1400.

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

Nice flower on a plant from Mbuyu.
