(Cleveland, Texas - Zone 9a) on Nov 9, 2014 6:29 PM concerning plant:
Raphionacme flanaganii has a caudex that can be raised above the soil for interesting effect. The large plant is in a 12" shallow pot. It has dropped all of its leaves and is going dormant for the winter. It gets VERY little water during this time.
The large Raphionacme flanaganii was repotted in the spring and more caudex was lifted above the soil. I was surprised to find three additional entire plants at that time. All four plants were potted up separately. The largest of these "offsets" is the plant with leaves.
The leaves are about four inches long and soft. The vine branches and is thickest close to the caudex. The caudex can sunburn easily.
