Cynanchum

Cynanchum

The name derives from Greek and literally means "dog" and "suffocate", probably referring to its strongly climbing characteristic, which gave it the common name of "strangling vine". These are twining or climbing perennials, with ovate or tapered leaves of a beautiful bright green color. In the past it was considered an antidote to poisons and, especially in China, it was widely exploited for traditional medicine, while currently, it is believed that some species have substances that are toxic when ingested!
