Watercolour on paper, no date (late 18th, early 19th century). Hand painted copy of an illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh (1751-1815). Roxburgh mentions the arrival of these plants to the gardens in 'Flora Indica'; 'From Amboyna plants were brought to the Botanic Garden at Calcutta, in 1798, where in seven years they began to blossom during the hot season, viz. April and May; but have not yet ripened their seed in Bengal'.
