Climbing and rambling over rocks or up tree trunks, the morning glory begonia has pretty white flowers in spring and glossy green leaves that look both grape and maple leaf-like. A succulent perennial vine that is frost tender, it is native to the extreme southeastern coastal plain of Brazil. Although called "morning glory", it has neither flowers nor twining stems like real morning glory vines,(Convolvulus).The thin, fleshy but plastic-like leaves are a glossy bright green and range in shape from circular to kidney-shaped, always with angular edges and occasional lobes. If growing upon a tree or across the ground, roots will emerge from the leaf nodes on the stem. In spring, fleshy branched structures arise from the bases of leaves and display the small ivory male and female flowers. The male flowers are the prominent ones that help make the branched flower stem look like a combination of a lit chandelier and candelabra.
