Crossword clues for delairea


Delairea is a plant genus within the family Asteraceae. It is classified within tribe Senecioneae. It contains only one species, Delairea odorata, which was previously included in the genus Senecio as Senecio mikanioides, and is known as Cape ivy in some parts of the world and German ivy in others.

Delairea odorata is native to South Africa. The name Cape ivy is also used ambiguously for both Senecio angulatus and Senecio scandens, two different but related creepers. Both of these names have incorrectly been listed as synonyms over history, and these species have been confused regularly despite the visual differences.
