Botany
Spanish term or phrase: cala (planta)
Es el nombre de una planta que ni siquiera sé qué aspecto tiene. Aparece en una descripción, enumerada junto a los arbustos. No he conseguido siquiera el nombre científico.

Lamento no poder dar más pistas.

Gracias a todos. He elegido la de Jon y no la de David (que contestó primero) porque el Google daba como 12000 entradas para "calla" que para "cala".

Explanation:
Para completar la referencia de David, te paso un glosario con los nombre en español, inglés y científico.

http://www.nappo.org/span-dic_e.htm

Allí figura como "alcatraz" (seguramente te suene la pintura "La Vendedora de Alcatraces", de Diego Rivera). En Uruguay la llaman "cartucho", según he visto navegando la red.

Saludos,

Patricia
