Amydrium zippelianum

An easy grower, one of the more unusual Amydrium plants because of its pinnate leaves, Amydrium zippelianum (Schott) Nicolson is a robust herbaceous low climber. Its leaves can reach up to  125 X 90 cm, but often remain considerably smaller in cultivation. They are ovate-cordate in outline, pinnatisect often to the mid-rib, then the pinnae usually separated by a 1-4 cm axis.

The genus name comes from the Greek amydron = dim, faint, obscure, weak.
