|Cocculus trilobus is a
deciduous dextrorse liana found in lowland grasslands, roadsides, or
forest edges. With 1-3cm-long petioles, leaves are of alternate
phyllotaxis; blades measure 3-12cm long, 2-10cm wide, in the shape
of a broad ovate to ovate-like cordate. However, the figure is
variable and occasionally cleft shallowly in three. Margins are
entire, and upper and lower surfaces have light yellow-brown hairs.
Dioecious: Branch tips and axils emerge small inflorescences that
set yellow-white flowers; sepals and petals are 6, respectively;
male flowers bear six stamens, and female ones have six pistils plus
six staminodes. Fruit is spherical, 6-7mm across, and matures in
glaucous black. Bloom time: July-August.
