Where this slender medium to small sized evergreen species grew in a sunny clearing within the dense forest to 3-4m tall. With large leaves comprising of 7-11 ovate grey-green leaflets which emerged glossy tinged with purple held in two false whirls, on long wiry dark purple stems (petioles). Heavily laden with dark purple fruit in elongated terminal spikes arching under the weight when we found them.
