madagascar rubber vine

donna has just posted a photo of my madagascar rubber vine [cryptostegia grandiflora]. it's call a vine [which it's not] because it has long cascading branches. it's called rubber [which it's not] because it has sticky white sap that resembles latex from the rubber tree, ficus elastica.


but the real news of the day is my trip to tropiflora nursery this morning where i purchased a white desert rose and saw [first time ever] a purple one. the purple one--one, the guy said, of two that they have--is not for sale and probably won't be available for several years. he said the first one was a chance find in a large shipment of stock from the philippines.
