Pot Size: 3 litre
Description: This collection formed a lax climber 3-4m long with grey-brownish stems armed with several sharp scattered hooked spines. Clothed in rather large pinnate glossy leaves 30-40cm long consisting of 6-8 pairs of leaflets. The inflorescences were congested terminal and axillary panicles of small pink-purple flowers followed by pink rounded capsules splitting to reveal the black glossy seed within. A climbing or scandent shrubby species I have encountered several times climbing through large shrubs in the Himalayas and Vietnam. This collection was gathered in north eastern Himalayas in 2013, at 2,500m. Easily cultivated in part-shade to full sun in a drained fertile soil.
