   This member of the Passifloraceae family was described by Heinrich Gustav Adolf Engler in 1893. It is found in Kenya, Somalia and Tanzania, growing in a well drained soil with some to lots of water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can grow up to one meter in diameter, the vines can grow up to two meters long. The flowers are greenish white, and cuttings will form a nice caudex.
