Erik Leonard Ekman III

Cissus verticillata

February 1914 Erik L Ekman received his Ph.D., and just a few months later, in April, he saw Cuba for the first time. Among the first plants he collected was this Cissus, but he would collect many, many more from Cuba and Hispaniola (he was heading for Brazil, never to arrive there; and never to return to Sweden). (Cissus verticillata, princess vine, is a widespred and cultivated species from tropical America.)
