For Al, ...those mysterious Asclepiads
Al, these are the two asclepiads hiding in the background of my former Gymno post, and you asked to see a pic.
I think these are now known as Larryleachia, though my tags still reflect the old name of Trichocaulon.
The larger one of the two is one I bought in 1982 as T. dinteri, a name synonymous with T. clavatum. The other plant that looks like a young Hoodia, is T. flavum, I only bought this one a couple of months ago.
So, for your pleasure...
Trichocaulon flavum and T. clavatum..
T. clavatum in flower earlier this year..
T. clavatum in flower in 1982 the year I bought it. Grown in bright sunlight, it soon loses its lush green look!.
