A member of the Moonseed family, Menispermum takes off quickly once established. This unusual woody vine has broad, roundish, lobed shiny green leaves and will twine its way up a fence or thicket edge. Flowers are whitish-green, small & almost inconspicuous. The rootstock has been used as a tonic, alterative, diuretic, purgative and to treat gout. Spreads by runners aggressively, but useful in restoration and produces a quick vertical presence in the landscape.
