Dear SA WildFlowers,

Is Devil's Claw an exculsive African Wildflower? Saw it growing throughout Mexico.Gorgeous.

Hi Alberto,

That's the trouble with common names!!

Harpagophytum procumbens comes from the Kalahari (RSA, Botswana, Namibia, Zim)
http://www.harpago.co.za/Project/part_1.htm

Proboscidea parviflora (and other species) come from America
http://waynesword.palomar.edu/ww0801.htm

Both plants and more are called 'Devil's Claw'.

Hope this helps
Maddy
