Project Data     (Last Modified On 11/8/2009)

The report of this species from Madagascar is based on an old, poorly documented specimen and is doubtful. This species has distinctive pendulous inflorescences borne on long flexuous branches, and white to blue flowers; this is the only Gaertnera species reported to have blue flowers.


Mauritius and possibly also Madagascar, in wet and very wet forests at 50-650 m.
