The Succulent Passionflowers

Succulent passionflowers! It took me a minute to get my head wrapped around the idea. It wasn’t until I saw one in flower that I truly understood. The genus Adenia is found throughout east and west Africa, Southeast Asia, and hits its peak diversity in Madagascar. It comprises approximately 100 species and, as a whole, is poorly understood. Today I would like to introduce you to this bizarre genus within Passifloraceae. ...

However, it is a very real strategy  adopted by one of the coolest carnivorous plants in North America. Utricularia inflata is one of the largest species of floating bladderwort on this continent and it is a species worth knowing. Sometimes referred to...


The Creeping Fuchsia

In its native habitat, it is strictly a coastal species, prefering to grow in sandy soils.
