Rivea corymbosa (common synonym: Turbina corymbosa), is a species of the Convolvulaceae (Bindweed family), native throughout Latin America from Mexico in the North to Peru in the South and widely naturalised elsewhere. This plant also occurs in Cuba, where it usually blooms from early December to February. Its flowers secrete copious amount of nectar, and the honey the bees make from it is very clear and aromatic. It is considered one of the main honey plants from the island.[3]

Rivea corymbosa is a large woody vine with heart-shaped leaves 5-9 cm long and 2.5-4.5 cm wide. The cymes are many-flowered. The bell-shaped corollas, 2-4 cm long, are white with greenish stripes. The fruit is dry, indehiscent, ellipsoidal with persistent, enlarged sepals, and bears a single hard, roundish, brown, minutely hairy seed about 3 mm in diameter.[1]
