Cissus Antarctica (Kangaroo Vine)

(Vitaceae) origin: Australia

An easy plant popular for its climbing habit. The stems will readily attach themselves to trellis, cane or string supports by means of tendrils, and have been known to reach a length of 43 ft. or more. The dark green leaves are 2 to 3 in. long and 1 to 1-1/2 in. wide, with serrated edges similar to an oak leaf. Tolerates almost any condition except cold below -15° F. (7° C). Prefers a semi-shaded position and liberal watering in summer, and rather more light and less water in winter. Regular feeding in spring and summer promotes growth and keeps the foliage a healthy green.
