Standard Cyclopedia of Horticulture

Eccremocarpus (Greek, pendent fruit). Bignoniaceae. An attractive half-hardy tendril-climber. Shrubs, but grown as annuals in the N., tall climbing: lvs. opposite, 2-parted or -pinnate: fls. yellow, scarlet or orange, mostly racemose; calyx campanulate, 5- parted; corolla-tube elongated; limb more or less 2- tipped or in E. scaber small and nearly entire; stamens 4, didynamous; included; disk annular: fr. an ovate or elliptic loculicidal 1-celled caps.—Three or 4 species of tall somewhat woody plants from Peru and Chile, climbing by branched tendrils at the end of the twice- pinnate lvs., and having very distinct fls. of somewhat tubular shape, which are colored yellow, orange or scarlet.

Eccremocarpus has two sections, in one of which the corollas are cylindrical, but in the section Calampelis, to which E. scaber belongs, the corolla has a joint at a short distance beyond the calyx, then swells out on the under side, and suddenly constricts into a neck before it reaches the small circular mouth, surrounded by five very short rounded lobes.
