    Apocynaceae (part 2), David Goyder, Timothy Harris, Siro Masinde, Ulrich Meve, Johan Venter. Flora of Tropical East Africa, 2012

    Habit
    An attractive vine with white flowers and heart-shaped leaves
    Fruits
    The fleshy-walled follicle splits to release many plumose seeds.
    Note
    Native to Argentina, but widely naturalised and of some concern in a number of regions with Mediterranean-type climates. Not likely, however, to become a problem in East Africa.
