One of my favourite tender plant. When it is in flower it is wonderful and beautiful. One word of warning one of its common name is widow maker as it has many backward curving thorns on the stems and leaves. Once it grabs your clothing it refuses to let go. I would not like to get tangled in this plant. This is one reason why many people in the tropics grow it in places they do not want trespassers to go.
