The caudex from this page.

   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 fifteen centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to five metres in height. The 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!
