Native Grape – Cissus hypoglauca


This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.


A vigorous woody large vine with attractive glossy palmate leaves, new growth is red coloured. It bears umbels of yellow flowers in spring and summer, followed by blue-black berries, which though edible, can sometimes have an astringent aftertaste. Birds and possums appreciate the seeds, and they can be used to make jam. Can be grown as an indoor plant, as well as used as a climber, but beware as growth can be rampant, especially in moist shady areas. Native to moist areas of eastern states of Australia. The other common name of water vine came from the ability of thick sections of trunk to drip water, which can be drunk.
