Here is a great DG thread about Trichodesma zeylanicum - http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1118218/ . There is a very good picture in it by Suse at 7/25/10 at 7:47 pm. And the types of flowers that were guessed at in the ID process also make this interesting. If you love silver leaves and blue flowers, and have arid conditions, this one might be for you.
