In the best tradition of the Usenet the subject query was answered within
2 hours of its posting by cereoid as Ibervillea lindheimeri (see post
above.). Thank you for the prompt reply. I have checked other Web
resources and I am now virtually certain this identity is correct.
In his post cereoid refers to the plant's large tuberous root. From time
to time I have run across a string of potato like tubers growing in series
on a single ¼ to 3/8-inch root. A few may have been 5 feet long with 4 or 5
such tubers. I have never connected these root strings to this plant before
but quite likely this is what cereoid was referring to. This morning I
found at a location different from the original pictured site a string of
two tubers. There were small Ibervillea lindheimeri present in the
vicinity. See a picture of the 2-tuber root string by clicking below:
