Vitis ficifolia / Ebiduru エビヅル

Vitis ficifolia is a deciduous liana that twines around other bodies with its tendrils. Leaves are alternate; blades are 5-8cm in length and width, ovate to broad ovate-like triangular. The leaves generally cleft in 3-5. Still, the cutting is variable, with shallow serrations on margins and bases with deep heart-shaped. Surfaces arachnoid first but becomes glabrous later, back surfaces with light brown or white arachnoid hairs that remain until autumn and 2.5-8cm-long petioles. Dioecious: Six-twelve centimeter-long panicles emerge opposite to leaves and set small green flowers. The inflorescences of bisexual flowers are smaller, and the flowers are sparse. Sap fruit, about 6mm across, spherical, matures in black. Bloom time: June-August.
