Shrub with large flowers | Markea longiflora (Solanaceae)
« on: Tue, 26 December 2017, 04:04:58 PM »
Hello all! Could someone please provide a name (at least family-level) for this shrub / small tree with large awesome flowers? I found it a couple of months ago along a forest road on the laterite plateau of the Nassau Mountains in Suriname. :)

Thanks in advance, Auke

Great, thank you! :thumbs_up:

And an awesome 2018 for you too! Maybe you can persuade some of your countrypeople to become forum members too? ::)

Cheers, Auke
