It is found in the Bale Region in Etiopia, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some to lots of sun. The caudex can grow to fifteen centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to 100 centimetres in height. The flowers are beautiful...

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 from Latin: "beautiful".
