   This member of the Asclepiadaceae* family was described by Friedrich Richard Rudolf Schlechter in 1895. It is found in the Southern Africa, growing in a well-drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The vines will reach for 75 centimetres. The deciduous flowers are a pale green star with a purple centre. It can be reproduced both by seeds and cuttings.

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