Watermelon Vine

Dischidia ovata, from the Mangrove swamps of Queensland, Australia.

It’s been Hoya week here at the Blog, and now we have the very close relative, the Dischidia, which is also in the same Asclepiadaceae. It’s also the family of the Stapliads, after they got moved over from the Stapeliaceae family. And the Milkweeds like our own native Asclepias tuberosa. Now that’s a nice family.

Anything else I can tell you about this Dischidia? Or maybe you’d like to read a bit about the Mangrove swamps of Queensland, Australia. Well….

In the news we find out that Cyclone Yasi has downed trees and the swamps are now in renewal mode.
