Strange and Tiny Blooms
This is a Cyphostemma juttae. The caudiciform plant below is quite receeded in the distance, while the blooms up front are actually tiny, barely visible without the camera. I would guess maybe 2mm, but then I don’t know metric so I could be totally wrong.
Anyway, it’s not a good photo, but what the heck, it’s bloggable.
As for the plant, it’s a great sub-tree in the grape family. Large, slow-growing caudex to 6 feet tall with thick broad leaves and branches only on top. The blooms, and later the fruit, come on vine-like stalks, which are kinda visible here.
Peeling bark, too. Woohoo!
I just get an unpleasant feeling from the photo, though. In person, since they’re barely visible, no negativity at all.
