Dioscorea hemicrypta is a member of the Dioscoreaceae family. It was described by Isaac Henry Burkill in 1952. It is found in South Africa, in the Calitzdorp area, growing in well drained soil with some water and some sun. I grow mine in part shade. The caudex can grow up to 50 centimetres in diameter and 1,5 meter height. The vines will reach four meters or more. The flowers are greenish. This is a winter grower.
