Comments: This native vine is hardly ever seen out of its native, wild habitat. Fruit eaten by a number of bird and animal species. Good deer brouse. Vine is very strong and will grow over anything in its path. Difficult to eradicate once it get well established. Best suited for naturalistic sites where free growth can be tolerated.
