|Author: ||J.M.H.A. Perrier de la Bāthie, 1940
mistake: Adenia monodelpha
This member of the Passifloraceae family was
given this name by Joseph Marie Henry Alfred Perrier de la Bāthie in
1940. It is found in south western Madagascar, growing in a well
drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can
grow to eight centimetres in diameter, while the plant reaches 75 or
even 500 centimetres
in height. The small flowers are white.
The name Adenia
is derived from aden, meaning gland, and pertains to the glands
found on leaves of most of the species.
The species name is unclear by
now. 'Single flower'?
