Madagascar, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some
sun. It will get one to three meter height, and it's flowers are white to
crème coloured (or are they greenish?).
It can be reproduced by seeds and probably by cuttings.
The genera name after
Francis-Louis Laporte de Castelnau, 1812-1880, a French zoologist
and entomologist. The species name after Henri Perrier de la Bathie,
