簡介 Description

常綠木質藤本,具白色乳汁,常纏繞於大型喬木。單葉對生,葉橢圓形,葉表濃綠有光澤,葉背綠白色,葉脈略帶紫紅色。頂生圓錐狀聚繖花序,冠狀花粉紅色,開花時樹冠層一片粉紅相當壯觀。葉片味酸,生津解渴,嫩葉亦可作為鹽的替代品。

Large evergreen woody climbing liana with white latex, often twining around large trees. The simple elliptic leaves are oppositely arranged, with dark green shiny upper surface and greenish white leaf back. The leaf veins are slightly purple-red. It produces terminal paniculate cymes of small pink coronal flowers, which can transform the host tree with a spectacular pink canopy when blooming. The thirst-quenching leaves are sour in taste, and the young leaves are often used as the substitute for salt.
