Running Straggler is a twining shrub, commonly found in the Western Ghats. The common name is probably in allusion to the rapid spreading habit of the plant. Leaves are broad-ovate and leathery. Greenish flowers are borne in numerous, large, many-flowered panicles at the end of branches. Petals are linear to spoon-shape, with blunt tips. Carpels are obovate, obtuse, emarginate.
