This is a vigorous, self-clinging vine, thanks to the adhesive-like tips of the tendrils, rather than penetrating rootlets. The height it achieves is limited by the structure it is grown on. It can also be used as a ground cover. This is one of the earliest vines to color in the fall and it is persistent and bright red. It is native from the northeastern U.S. down to Florida. This may be one of the most adaptable climbing plants as it tolerates poor soil, sun or shade, cold, heat, pollution and salt.
