I didn't get a photo of the flower this year,
"wasted" my time in Mexico at that time.
This member of the Asteraceae family was described by
Hooker in 1899. It's found in the eastern part of Africa, growing in a well-drained
soil with some water and lots of sun. The ginger-like roots grow into
clusters of 3-4 centimetres
in diameter rhizomes and covers several square-meters. The flowers are orange
to red, and it can be reproduced by seed, cuttings and
leaves. I found mine
in Roskilde as a "rare ginger" in 2003.
Highly poison. A non-traceably toxin, ruining the liver.
