A strong climber, it grows often up to 15 m tall, with thick cane-like stems exceeding 15 mm in diameter. Its leaves, without hairs, are 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 an inedible, greenish-red drupe, 5 mm in diameter, usually with only one seed.
Because of its wide distribution, many local common names are used, such as whip vine, hell tail, supplejack, false rattan, and bush cane.
