   This plant develops an interesting streched looking caudex with silvery tan bark.  During the growing season, this plant will grow up to or more than 12' long.  If these vines aren't removed by the end of the growing season, they have a tendency to thicken in areas, and try to root out, making for excellent cuttings.
