Caracus wigandia: Wigandia caracasana

The Caracus wigandia is a small tree or large ornamental plant with large leaves and purple-blue flowers.  Other than the fact that this tree is native to Venezuela (from the sign - see below) I don´t know anything about it.  This tree is in the Southern Spanish town of Mijas not too far from the Bull ring.  Enjoy the pictures!

  1. Wigandia is naturalized in a few areas in California. It's best known as one of those rare trees that can produce contact dermatitis (watch out!).
