Very vigorous rather spiny climber clothed with long bright green flat "leaves" actually flattened pieces of stem. Small slightly scented white flowers may appear in summer, followed by red berries. This South African plant climbs rapidly by means of the sharp spines on its stems, and is often used in that country as an impenetrable barrier. It is now a weed in Australia, but here it is not likely to be a problem as it is frost tender.
Useful for covering a wall in a conservatory or other well-lit indoor area, or would look impressive tumbling over a balcony.
