Raphionacme procumbens, or simply as Raphionacme, is a plant native to South Africa that grows to unusual heights. It's a caudex growing vine, and its tuberous root system helps support its impressive form. The flowers of Raphionacme are green.

For gardeners living in USDA Zone 9-11, Raphionacme is a highly attractive and unique flowering plant. It will require full sun, as well as moderate water, to achieve its vigorous growth. Because it is a vine, Gardeners should be sure to give plenty of room to allow the caudex to spread its tendrils and achieve its full potential.
