Okukato Lekadi Overview

The neat appearance of the ribbed stems furnished with bristles at first reminds one of a cactus, but when the bizarre trumpet-shaped flowers appear, one realizes that it is not. These large, trumpet (tubular) flowers are characteristic of the genus while the many-ribbed stems are characteristic of the species.
