Viper's Bowstring Hemp

 

Numerous cultivars have been selected, many of them for variegated foliage with yellow or silvery-white stripes on the leaf margins. Popular cultivars include Compacta, Goldiana, Hahnii, Laurentii, Silbersee and Silver Hahnii.

The variety D. trifasciata var. laurentii, together with the cultivars Bantel's Sensation and Golden Hahni have gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

In its native range in Africa, a yellow-tipped cultivar is associated with Oya, the female Orisha of storms. In Nigeria it is commonly linked with Ogun, the Orisha of war, and is used in rituals to remove the evil eye. In Brazil its common name Espada de São Jorge links it to Saint George, who by syncretism is also associated with Orisha Ogun.
