Description: Behind every collected plant lies a story. This species is a very handsome twinning evergreen glabrous climber with ovate-elliptic to elliptic dark polished foliage to 16cm long. We had been rummaging through the forest on the Chinese border in Vietnam for days, where the climber was common, but without the easily identifiable fruit, held in large ball-like clusters of over 70 red-purplish angled berries. Imagine our delight when we were moving camp deeper into the forest when we literally came across a mound of them 1 x 2m. The native tribesmen had gathered them and were more than happy to share them. These were the result of the white-yellow long stalked flowers composed of up to 25 tepals to 2.5cm long. Best grown in some shelter from cold, in sun to part shade in a fertile drained soil
