Close-ups of the flower by Susan Ford Collins.

   This member of the Pedaliaceae family was described by Jean-Henri Humbert in 1962. It is found on Madagascar, growing in a well drained soil with lots of water and some sun. The stem can grow up to 30 centimetres in diameter, the whole bush will grow up to two meters height. The flowers are white or light pink with pink stripes.
