Ecologie : The plant was said to be common along roadsides near Nassau, Bahamas, where it was introduced. Sent to Paris Bot. Gard. in 1903 from Congo-Brazzaville by Dybowski (1891), Lecomte (1894). A portion of the type plant cultivated at Kew. Brown (monograph) found the leaves very similar to S. bracteata. He also believed that plants sent under the name S. guineensis Willd. belong to this species.
