Description: One of many of my collections of this species, but the first to germinate (3 years later), which I gathered just before leaving the high mountains of northern Vietnam in 2011. Where I had encountered it many times acting as a climber or scandent shrub, but always requiring support. A slender woody climber with greyish stems that were 3m long, that are not always prickly, although small branches and leaves are, usually hooked. The leaves were 7-15 foliate arranged sub-opposite or alternate, leathery. The inflorescences were large terminal or axillary panicles of small purple flowers followed by pink rounded capsules splitting to reveal the black glossy seed within. Easily cultivated in part-shade to full sun in a drained fertile soil.
