Redvine (Brunnichia ovata)

RedvineRedvine is a perennial woody vine that regenerates new growth from woody rootstocks and climbs by its tendrils.

In the seedling stage, its leaves have a heart-shaped appearance similar to those of morningglories. Mature leaves are alternate and ovate with wavy margins and pointed tips. Distinctly veined, each leaf has a folded appearance along its midrib. Its flowers are greenish white and occur in clusters.

The distribution of redvine in Missouri is restricted to the southeastern section of the state.
