Recently a friend returning from Baja brought back some shots of a tuberous
vine, Exogonium bracteatum. I have not found out a lot about it in the
meanwhile other than where it is found, its family (Convolvulaceae) etc. and
that someboby at Arizona State has been looking at it. I have not found a
botanical description. Its bracts dominate the infloerscence and are
amazing. Considering the climate where it grows, a tuberous plant is indeed
a wonder as it sends its tendrils into tall bushes in their leafless state.

Does Leo perhaps know more? When was it discovered and who found it?
