Microloma sagittatum, the bokhoring, is a species of plant in the family Apocynaceae, that is native to the south-western Cape, South Africa.
Like other Microloma species, this is a thin climbing plant. However, this species has velvety leaves that are slightly arrow-shaped and have margins that slightly curve underneath.
The distinctive pink flowers have sepals that spread outwards, and a central, green pointed column. The flowers appear in winter and spring.
This species usually occurs in the far western part of South Africa, throughout most of the predominantly winter-rainfall Western Cape Province, with its range also extending into the westernmost part of the Northern Cape Province.

PS. I am busy saving for a few upcoming Landscape Photography Trips to Scotland, and Namibia, a few road trips in the USA, including Route 66, and a few local National Parks and Botanical gardens in South Africa. The most important trip is honoring my promise to Dad to return to Scotland and capture the beautiful landscapes and Puffins. Your help to make these trips a reality would be much appreciated in today’s economy.
