Grape Ivy Plant

Cissus rhombifolia

Grape Ivy plants, and their relative the Oak Leaf or Ellen Danica Ivy, have dark green glossy leaves that grow off of long thin stems. They are only about 18″ tall but can have trailing vines up to 10ft. in length. Trailing vine plants like a Grape Ivy  look beautiful sitting on a table, hanging in a basket, or standing on the floor as a tall pole plant. The tendrils of a Grape or Oak Leaf Ivy help them cling to poles or pieces of bark. Grape and Oak Leaf Ivy plants may be a little difficult to locate because many greenhouses don’t want to spend the extra money and time it takes to grow them properly. The new varieties are hardier and less prone to disease than the older varieties and make excellent house plants.
