Description: An unusual looking species that we have only encountered in this form in the Rio Nigro area close to Medellin in the January of 2015. A relatively small herbaceous twining species we collected growing up small shrubs within the forest of Arvi at 2400m. Where it twined through to only a couple of meters forming a clump of tuberous roots, with narrowly ovate to linear alternate leaves to 10 cm long. Bearing rusty red fluted flowers with darker spotting inside, in umbels of around 20. Best grown in a rich well draining soil with shade for the roots and protection from severe frost. We find them to be very successful planted under bushy shrubs, which protect the tubers from penetrating frosts.
