This member of the Stemonaceae family was given this name by Friedrich Anton Wilhelm Miquel in 1867. It is found in Japan, growing in a sandy soil with little to some water and some sun. The roots gets 1-1,5 centimetres thick, the branches will grow to 70 centimetres. The flowers are brown, and the plant can be reproduced both by seeds and dividing of the centre.

In nature, I'm sure, it will grow with the roots sub-terrain.

Seen as a member of the Roxburghiaceae family on IPNI with authors: Franch. & Sav.
