Searching Genus for Menispermum
A genus of 2 woody-based twining vines with slender, tangled stems and inconspicuous flowers followed by grape-like clusters of beautiful crescent shaped fruits.
Late Spring to Early Summer
Native to eastern North America, growing in light shade in fertile, moist soil. Habitats include open deciduous woodlands, woodland borders, thickets, semi-shaded riverbanks, overgrown fence rows, and hedges. Moonseed climbs over adjacent shrubs, the lower branches of small trees, or fences. The beautiful, heart-shaped leaves are dark-green and shiny. 15cm panicles of whitish-green flowers are followed by drupes of round berries, turning from green to bluish-black, each containing a single (crescent-moon-shaped) seed. The fruits are poisonous, and can be mistaken for wild grapes. Seed wild collected in Ontario.
