[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The name of Vincetoxicum dionysiense (Asclepiadaceae), "Tamepoison", is derived form its alleged ability to act as an antidote for poison. Indeed, both root and leaves have emetic properties.

The flowers are typical of the family, small, only about 5 mm in diameter, with five-fold symmetry. Here you can see the flowers in all stages, from the bud to the fully open flower.
