Doxantha capreolata, and Anisostichus crucigera. This native perennial vine is usually found in east Texas forested areas, but is also found in various places in westernmost central Texas. Its woody vines climb well (up to 50 feet) due to the tendrils (modified leaves), which have claws at the tips, enabling the crossvine to cling to fences and walls without help.The opposite leaves are usually 4-6 inches long and 2 inches wide and are glossy dark green in summer and more reddish after frost. In areas with mild winters the vine will keep its leaves during the winter, and is ready to continue growing and flower as soon as warmer weather arrives. This is a good characteristic for a vine which is planted to cover arbors and provide shade quickly.
