Heterophragma (Greek, different and septum; alluding to the peculiar 4-angled septum of the typical species). Bignoniaceae. Three species of E. Indian trees, with large opposite pinnate lvs. and large yellow or pink fls. in terminal panicles or from the old wood: calyx campanulate, irregularly 3-5-lobed; corolla cam- panulate-funnelform; ovules in several series in each cell of the broadly linear ovary: caps, cylindric or compressed, falcate or twisted, loculicidally 2-valved; septum flat or 4-angled. The 2 African species referred by some writers to this genus belong to Fernandia. Only the following species has been offered in this country. H. adenophyllum, Seem. (Bignonia adenophylla, Wall.). Tree, 30-;50 ft.: young growth tomentose: lfts. 5-7, broadly elliptic, acute or obtuse, entire, tomentose, 7-9 in. long: fls. in terminal panicles; calyx irregularly 5-lobed; corolla brownish yellow, densely woolly outside, with spreading 5-lobed limb, 2 in. wide: caps, twisted, resembling a cork-screw, 1-3 ft. long; septum flat. W____.Ill. 160 (as Spathodea adenophylla). —Little known in cult, and adapted for subtropical or tropical countries only. Prop, probably like Radermachia by cuttings and air-layering.
