Tropical Vines

Cissus discolor

Begonia Vine
Years ago, we owned our first Begonia Vine and grew it as a house plant in a hanging basket. Unfortunately we never really appreciated it back them. A few years ago, we rediscovered it as a shade planter subject. The meandering stems are cloaked with dark green foliage overlaid with attractive silver markings. Train it up an obelisk, or let it spill from planters. It does need summer heat to put on growth, so don't put it outside too soon! We won' begin shipping Cissus until imid May.
