This member of the Phytolaccaceae family was described by Carl Linnaeus in 1762, and is found on the Pampas in central South America. It grows in rich soil or a mix, with lots of water from October to December, and lots of sun. The small flowers are green, as well as the berries. It can both be reproduced by seeds and cuttings. The stem can grow to two metres in diameter, while the root spread to seven metres on the surface. The tree will grow from 15 to 25 metres in height.
I found mine in a small flower stand in the streets of Buenos Aires, where it can been seen in most parks and other green areas.

The genera name means 'plant', and 'crimson color' for the  berries. The species name means 'male and female flowers on separate plants'.
