An elegant evergreen tall shrub or small tree at only 4m tall. With leaves comprising of 7-11 small ovate-acuminate dark-green leaflets 10 × 7.5 cm, held in two false whirls, on wiry dark purple stems. Bearing loose terminal panicles of pale flowers held in rounded clustered umbels, followed by very small purple-blue fruit.
