Plant A Day – Woodbine

Woodbine Parthenocissus vitacea

Parthenocissus vitacea

Woodbine is quite similar to its genus-mate, Virginia Creeper.  Both are in the grape family –  Vitaceae.  Woodbine seems like a cross between Virginia Creeper and grapes.  It has the leaves of Virginia Creeper, but the tendrils of grape plants.  It has the viney-ness of both species.
