This member of the Passifloraceae  family was given this name by Heinrich Gustav Adolf Engler in 1891. It is found on the woodlands of Angola, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some sun. The stem can grow up to 40 centimetres in diameter, the woody vines to two meters. The flowers are greenish white.

The name Adenia is derived from aden, meaning gland, and pertains to the glands found on leaves of most of the species. The species name means 'irregularly undulating or scalloped', describing leaf margins.
