This an old blog that I am reviving at the moment. My home made websites work well and I would like to continue with them. Blogger however is so easy to deal with now and saves a lot of time. I shall therefore place posts here and may transfer some to my other websites later that are better indexed for specific searches. The indexing/content of the old posts need to be improved - Will work on it bit by bit. You are welcome to leave comments - unfortunately I cannot reply to them as it causes Firefox errors.


Cyphia sylvatica

Cyphia sylvatica is a twining plant that usually grows with the support of  bushes. Initially the leaves are somewhat oblong with serated edges and flat on the ground. The twine develops later and the leaves are then linear.

Bulbs can form off shoots under the ground as they age. The flowering time is in August (southern hemisphere).

The leaves of the twine have irregular edges but are not dissected like in some related species.
