I am not sure which photo actually are the right.

   This member of the Smilacaceae family was given this name by William Roxburgh in 1832. It is found in China and Himalaya, growing in a rather rich but well drained soil with quite some water and little to some sun. The swollen roots can grow to five centimetres in diameter, the vines can reach for three to five metres. The flowers are whitish green.
