This member of the Icacinaceae family was given this name by Heinrich Gustav Adolf Engler. It is found in Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania, growing in fine grit on hill-sides with little water and lots of sun. Never the less, it thrive with quite a lot of water and a rather rich soil. The caudex can grow to one and a half meter in diameter! The vines can grow to 15 meters. Pyrenacantha start growing around first of March. The flowers are unisexual (plants di- or monoecious) or bisexual. Bisexual flowers are usual found at the base of male flowers, the female in tiny clusters along the stems. With both sexes, the plant can self fertilize. I got seeds on a two year old cutting, which do form a perfect caudex.
