Cyprinia gracilis
« on: February 24, 2018, 09:18:22 AM »
Last month I was up in the Troodos Botanical Garden and found a number of seeds still on this climber so I collected a few. The photo shows them beginning to appear. Cyprinia gracilis is named for the island of Cyprus were it is described as semi-endemic, it has only been recorded there and in the south of Turkey.
Cyprus Branch Head. Gardens in a field 40 m above sea level with reasonably fertile clay soil.
