Flagellariaceae > Flagellaria indica var. ,

Flagellaria indica is a climbing plant found in many of the tropical and subtropical regions of the Old World, India, South East Asia, Polynesia and Australia.

A strong climber often up to 15 metres tall, with thick cane like stems exceeding 15 mm in diameter. Leaves without hairs, 10 to 40 cm long, and 5 to 20 mm wide. A coiled apex of the leaf forms the holding part of the climbing plant. Fragrant white flowers form in panicles, 10 to 25 cm long. The fruit is a non edible greenish red drupe, 5 mm in diameter, usually with only one seed.

Because of the wide distribution, there are many common local names. Such as Whip Vine, Supplejack, False Rattan, Bush Cane, and many others.
