Risks of its description
The resemblance of this species to those of the kind Lobelia led Jean-Baptiste Bory of Saint-Vincent to place this one in this kind, after it observed it with Tenerife within the framework of the first stopover of the Expédition Baudin fine 1800: it describes it in the first volume of sound Voyage in the four principal islands of the seas of Africa under the name of lobélie Broussonet ( Lobelia broussonetia ) and thus intends to honor Pierre Marie Auguste Broussonet, which it met at the time of the stopover.
According to Jean-Baptiste Bory of Saint-Vincent, the plant “has very-fibrous clusters of Racine S, whose a Tige oarswoman rises which divides a little after the exit of the Boue which nourishes it ”. He adds that “ his Feuille S is tender, of a Vert clearly, whole, obrondes and lengthened in Pétiole towards the base ” while “ the Pédoncule S are very-hails, long, with small a Bractée lancéolée about the middle and carrying small a Fleur (seldom two) equalizes, Blanc He, or mackled”
