Dear all,

Here are a few more pictures of the plant I posted yesterday. I took the photos this morning. It is indeed a climber. This has climbed on to a Citharexylum spinosum tree in my garden. Please find attached also pictures of the fruit (both green and dry). Hope this will help in confirming the id.

Regards,
Sandhya

Yes, this is aslo a good example of how to photograph and what to photograph to submit over the internet to ID a plant...


Thanks Sandhya ji for additional pics...
Now we all know the id...
and my net based research tells me its most likely correct, esp since Tanay says so...

Galphimia by the way is an anagram of Malphigia

play of words...

anatomically an interesting family...

the links I sent with your earlier thread has nice descriptions...

and you mentioned seeds?  Can you collect some? 
are they fertile...  can you sprout them?

Since its in your own garden, how long ago did you buy the plant and put it in the ground?
from what nursery? 
So many questions, be patient .. and tell me please...

Thanks
Usha di

Dear friends,
Thank you all for the identification and information.

Usha di, my father got this plant from a friend of his about 5 years
ago. He got it as a seedling which was propagated from a cutting and
we planted it on the ground. I haven't tried planting the seeds yet,
but no seedlings have sprouted under the plant. I can surely collect
the seeds and try if they will sprout.

Regards,
Sandhya

Pankj ji... I have the same kinda questions, so spent almost a day
reading about these things in June or July when I first bought my
plant.. which turns out to be Galphimia gracilis... not this plant
here in this thread...

Dont know.. that 's why originally I had thought this was a
galiphimia...

Googling for Tristellateia australasiae... also brings up names like
Galphimia vine, Thyrallis vine, vining golden shower...

Univv mich has done some research and have a website and this pdf..
take a look:
you can get to the website name from the pdf name...
http://www.lsa.umich.edu/herb/malpigh/MALPpdf/C25-Galph.pdf

The author states that Malphigia sa whole is very confusing... or some
such words..
Take a look..

You being a taxonomist can educate me...

Thanks in advance...

Sorry more work for you inaddtion to your regular duties at the job...

Respected Mam
Thanks for the encouraging me to check.
One very basic difference. Style and Carpel both are 3 in Galphimia
where as in Tristellateia there are 3 carpels but style is 1.

PS.. one request..Pankaj ji... respected mam you say and I turn
around to see who's standing behind me...

Please no respected mam...
ushadi name is enough..

we are all equal here ... although in eflora the botanists and
taxonnomists should be before the perpetual students like me... ha
