mojangensis, Wilhelm Vatke, 1882
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
centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to five metres in
flowers are white, pinkish or lavender.
The genera name from Greek
stiktos; 'spotted' and kardia 'heart', referring to the
spotted, heart-shaped leaves. 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!
