  Green Wax Flower

 

Myanmar

The Green Wax Flower is a perennial climbing shrub in the milkweed family and which bears follicle, oval-shaped fruits that taper to a point at each end and usually grow in pairs.

 

These velvety seedpods are green in colour, but are covered in a yellowish brown powder-like layer and contain multiple seeds, which grow overlapping, are broadly ovoid, turgid, off-white in colour with a beige line bordering the edge, and surrounded by thick silky hairs.
