Cissus antarctica, called "kangaroo vine", is one of the best known species of the genus Cissus in the family of Vitaceae. It is a climbing plant from Australia. It is used as a vine in warm climates as an ornamental plant in gardens.
Cissus antarctica is an evergreen climbing plant widespread in warmer rainforest of Australia’s coastal regions. It is a true climber, supporting itself by tendrils. These vines are also common plants of rainforest edges, with foliage forming a screen right down to the ground. It can grow 2-3m (7-10 feet) tall indoors use as trained or hanging baskets. Its pointed-oval leaves are shiny, medium green and up to 10cm (4 inch) long. They have lightly toothed edges and are produced singly on short, red leaf-stalks. Where overhead space is restricted, growing points can be pinched out regularly to encourage the development of side-shoots. This will make the plants lower-growing and more bushy.
