General Species Information:
Found in the Murray Mallee SA, Adelaide Hills and possibly elsewhere
Flowers look very similar to the Mallee Fringe-lily, but as you can see the plant habit is totally different.
As it's common name indicates, it's a climber and wraps itself around other plant stems to gain height (~200mm or so). Also snakes around on the ground flowering.
We weren't able to find any leaves.
