Lawyer Vine (Wait-a While)

Lawyer Cane

Large thick clumps of nastiness.


Impeneterable to all but the smallest animals.

The ultimate plant

The wait-a-while is covered in prickles of all types.

Prickly Spines

The main vine has a sheath of small needle sharp prickles that will snap off inside the skin.

Hair like spines

The fronds have small and very sharp hair-like spines on the top...


...and nasty barbs on the underside, all pointing inwards...


...and stronger than human skin.


Just to be on the safe side, long and extremely strong tendrils sprout out the tops, lying across paths at eye level.


These of course have large inward pointing barbs to catch the unwary.

Without a doubt, one of my favourite plants :-)

Kerry – November 24th, 2003: Have just purchased 1 1/2 acres of rainforest. Totally covered in wait-a-while. What a pleasure! Any hints on getting rid of the stuff?
Ned – November 25th, 2003: Wait-awhile is much better than rainforest! Why would you want to get rid of it? It is the king of plants! Long live wait-awhile!
