Cissus: A Miracle Plant, or a Curiosity?

By Bubbles
December 2, 2013

Cissus quadrangularis, also known as Veldt Grape, is one of the most unusual plants in my garden. I have it contained in a hanging basket, but when a piece is knocked off, it will readily root on the ground. Cissus prefers to climb and will wind its way into the tree limbs if allowed. In early fall, the plant has small insignificant white flowers and, occasionally, small red berries that are are sterile.

Very interesting plant as you describe it. I would like to know, if I cold get hold of one, the hardiness zone for it to thrive. I live in Tampa, Florida and some "harsh" one-day winters knock off some plants. Thank you, Jose.

Welcome to ATP, Jose! One of my plants came from FL. Both came from a gardening friend. I take mine in about Dec. and put them back out in Feb. If you click here, @davidofdeland, David can tell you about the hardiness in Florida. He grows them there!
