Syngonium podophyllum......Goosefoot plant

Usually grown as a houseplant in colder climes, this  pink leaved Syngonium  is happily growing beneath the black bamboo in the garden at Cortijo Azahar.

Also known as Nephthytis or African evergreen,  this pretty climber can be found growing in trees using its aerial roots to cling on to whatever it is climbing.

 Origins Central America from Mexico to Panama.
