Climbing Apocynaceae

Post by Passif on Fri Oct 08, 2010 9:30 pm

A small climber, a few meters long, in the Apocynaceae (Asclepidoideae). The picture was taken in French Guiana 1 September 2009 on the roadside.

Blepharodon nitidus



Climbing on the same shrub was another Apocynaceae:

Odontadenia puncticulosa

I love most of the Asclepiads. That Odontadenia is especially nice.

We have a Tweedia, (aka Oxypetalum), that is a crazy weed in our yard. I think my favorites may be the Strophanthus. I have not seen a species of them that I do not like. I would love to see them in the wild... hopefully someday. We have not had a blooming one for a few years, so finding pictures may be tough, but I'll try soon.

Thanks for sharing these pictures!
