This member of the
Barringtoniaceae family was first described under this name by Wilhelm
Sulpiz Kurz in
1876. It is found on the costal areas of India, Madagascar, The Philippines, Polynesia and
Northern Australia. It grows in sand or
sand-mix with lots of water and sun. The stem will reach for up to 20
meters, and the flowers are white. It can be reproduced by seeds, and I really
think cuttings are a possibility, just haven't seen it.
