Cissus rhombifolia Ellen Danica

Cissus rhombifolia

Grape Ivy, Oak Leaf Ivy, Water Vine, Kangaroo Grape, Kangaroo Treebine
Family: Vitaceae
Origin: Tropical America
Vine or creeperShadeSemi-shadeModerate waterOrnamental foliage

The first and most common type was Cissus rhombifolia known as Grape Ivy since the foliage resembles grape leaves and it climbs with the aid of tendrils. Compound leaves with 3 leaflets; stems covered in soft brown hair; vine-like habit with tendrils that allow it to climb.

Ellen Danica, a sport with leaves resembling an oak leaf, was the next variety to enter the market. The loosely arranged leaflets and leaflet lobing give this cultivar a finer texture than the others.

One of the most popular house plants, with showy leaves and cascading growth habit. Very fast growing and easy in care. In nature, it grows as a climber with tendrils. Leaves are broadly ovate, toothed, leathery, glossy, deep green. The perfect addition to any home, office, or greenhouse setting. The plant prefers medium light intensity but will also tolerate shade for short periods of time. Maintain an evenly moist soil during the growing season but give less water in winter.
