This member of the Fabaceae family was given this name
Rocha da Torre and Jean Olive Dorothy Hillcoat
in 1955. It's found in the mid-eastern- and southern part of Africa,
growing in well-drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The
wines will reach for six meters, the caudex will grow to ten
centimetres or more. The flowers are yellow, and seeds are the only
way of propagate.
The genera name refers to the
torulose seed. The species name from Fazoghli, a place in
Sudan, where the type specimen was collected.
