The caudex from
This member of the Convolvulaceae family was given this name by
Daniel Frank Austin and Eckart Eich in 2001. It is found in northern
Madagascar, growing in a rich and well drained soil with
quite some water water and lots of sun. I think the caudex can grow to
centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to five metres in
flowers are white, pinkish or lavender.
The species name after the city
and province Majunga (Mahajanga) in north western Madagascar.
I am not sure the caudex will
appreciate to be exposed - let me know!
