First described by Hans Schinz in 1892, belonging to the Passifloraceae family. It is from the South Africa and Botswana, and can get 40 or even op to one meter or more in diameter! The branches reach for up to three meters. It preferring acid, mixed soil, well watered in the summer and can dry out in winter. Keep out of strong sun. The flower is green/crème in colour. It can be reproduced both by cuttings and by seeds. The cuttings might not form a caudex! 

Dioecious, I don't know what I got. If its a female, and I get it pollinated, it will get fine orange fruits. The sap is poison, and the plant can't stand frost.

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 'blue'.

Male flower.
