    Overview

    Cissus is a genus containing around 324 evergreen, perennial, woody vine species distributed across the world, with most located in the tropics. These tendril climbing plants may require support for optimal growth. They are grown for their attractive foliage and multiple species are cultivated as common garden plants. Some are succulent and flowers tend to be small and discrete, coloured red or green-yellow.
