Ampelopsis glandulosa. var. heterophylla / Nobudou ノブドウ

Ampelopsis glandulosa. var. heterophylla, a deciduous liane, twines around other things and plants with dichotomous tendrils; stems die each year, but the bases lignify themselves to grow to as big as 4cm in diameter. Leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis; blades measure 8-11cm long, 5-9cm wide, almost circular, and cleft themselves in 3-5, with the lobe's tips pointed, coarse, shallow serrations on margins, bases cordate, and rough hairs (trichomes) on the backside. Cymes appear oppositely with the leaves and set many small flowers. Fruit is purple or emerald, which is normal; however, most are abnormal. Bloom time: July-August.
