Very rare, newly named species endemic to the Dominican Republic. The leaves are attractive duck-food shaped with prominent egg-mimic glands. So far, it has been difficult to bloom in cultivation, but the flowers are very unusual. It is hoped that the trigger for blooming can be identified, so we need a lot of different people from different areas growing it! It's an easy vine to grow provided it doesn't get too cold.
