    Bignoniaceae, Sally Bidgood, Bernard Verdcourt, Kaj Vollesen. Cobaeaceae, Bernard Verdcourt. Flora of Tropical East Africa. 2006

    Habit
    Strong-growing climbing shrub to 10 m or more.
    Leaves
    Leaves imparipinnate with 3–5(–7) pairs of leaflets.
    Tendrils
    Tendrils absent.
    Leaflets
    Leaflets narrowly ovate to ovate-lanceolate, 3.5–9 × 1.3–2.6 cm.
    Flowers
    Flowers in few- to many-flowered panicles up to 40 cm long, sweet-scented.
    Calyx
    Calyx campanulate, 0.7–1.5(–2.2) cm long.
    Corolla
    Corolla pale pink or rose with darker red streaks inside, campanulate, 3.5–5(–6.5) cm long, 2–3.5(–5) cm wide at throat, narrowing abruptly to 3–5 mm wide at base; lobes ± round, 1.3–2.8 cm long.
    Fruits
    Fruit linear, 30–45 × ± 1.5 cm.
    Seeds
    Seeds 0.6–1 × ± 3 cm including wing.
    Figures
    Fig. 2.7–2.10, p. 15.
    Note
    P. brycei has usually been kept separate from P. ricasoliana (e.g. Diniz in F.Z. 8(3): 79(1988)). Supposedly restricted to South Africa but none of the characters, flower size, exsertion of narrow part of corolla tube and presence or absence of hairs in corolla tube actually holds up. Sandwith long ago on a determination label suggested they were probably the same and it is clear Gentry considered them conspecific.
