   This member of the Asclepiadaceae* family was given this name by Curtius Polycarp Joachim Sprengel  in 1824. It is found in most of Australia, growing in a well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The tubers can grow to ten centimetres in diameter, the vines can reach seven metres. The flowers are greenish to yellow, and the plant can be reproduced both by seeds and cuttings.

*This family might been incorporated in the Apocynaceae family now.
