NEW MEMBER 100 CLUB Stigmaphyllon flroribundum

This woody vine, collected in Guanica City, south of Puerto Rico,  our 'desert' like zone,  has been in the collection since 2008. It was not identified until yesterday, while pruning all vines which had reached the roof. It is the first time  its flowers  have bloomed, or noticed.

It belongs to the exclusive VIV Club, 
(very important vegetation)
in the collection:

Bixa orellana
Guaicum officinale
Malpighia coccigera
Passiflora foetida
Passiflora pallida L.
Calathea loeseneri
Pedilantus tuberose
Ipomoea aegyptia

These are the rarest.  If lucky,
you could buy one or two.

That is that.
