“The name given by the Greeks and Romans to the plants sometimes called Brancursine, of which it is also the botanical generic name. A. mollis and A. spinosa, natives of the south of Europe, are the species best known. The twining habit of the plants, their large white flowers, and, above all, the beautiful form of their dark and shining leaves, have led to their artistical application, especially in the capitals of Corinthian columns.” — Chambers’ Encyclopedia, 1875
