Nice big on in a garden in
The fruits are poison.
This scaled Vitaceae
was described by Dinter and Gilg in 1911, but renamed by
Bernard M. Descoings in
1967. Found in southern Africa, where
it grows in well-drained soil, moderate water and lots of sun. The stem will
get op to 80 cm in diameter and the plant reaches op to 2,5 meters. Can be
reproduced both by seeds and cuttings. I got mine from Botanical Garden in
Copenhagen in 2002.
Named after Jutta Dinter, one of the authors wives.
