Berchemia scandens

Rhamnaceae

Supplejack is a twining woody vine that grows throughout the Southeast. The leaves are usually between 1 and 3 inches in length and have distinctive parallel veins. They emerge folded in half and open up as they mature. The young stems may be a bright red or green depending on the light exposure. The "trunk" of the vine can remain green even after years of growth. Supplejack produces clusters of little oblong dark fruits.
