Comments: Considered a high climbing vine with aerial rootlets for attachment, it is actually a high climbing shrub. As with ivy, there are many leaf forms having from three to five lobes. Leaves of cultivars vary widely in different sizes and shapes. Leaves of this cultivar are variegated. They have white flowers which are followed by poisonous black berries. Used extensively as a ground cover in sun, part shade or shade areas. Also used in containers and hanging baskets.
