The flowers of Cissampelos capensis grow from leaf axils. They are greenish yellow, male and female ones occurring on separate plants. This male plant has flowers with four petals spreading widely. (Female flowers have only one sepal and one petal each.)
The stamens are attached to each other, erect in the flower centre. The brown anthers form a ring on the staminal column. The small, velvety hairy flowers become about 3 mm in diameter.
The flowers are followed by small ovoid, orange berries (Vlok and Schutte-Vlok, 2010; Van Wyk, et al, 1997; Van Wyk and Gericke, 2000; http://pza.sanbi.org).
