Evergreen groundcover with leaves grouped in threes. Pretty dainty white flowers emerge on long flowering stems mainly during spring and are followed with glassy red to black berries. It is a great shade plant in the fynbos biome. The latin name 'vesicatoria' comes from vesicare (blister raising) which refer to the strong allergic skin reaction from the leaves and roots.
