Searching Genus for Smilax

SMILAXFamily: LILIACEAE
Aa genus of 200 vines native to North America, Asia and the Tropics.

SMILAX herbacea New Late Spring3301
Smooth Carrion Flower90-270cm  Zone: 3
Here is a unique and attractive climber for the shade garden, almost unknown in commerce. Native to moist woods, thickets and meadows from Manitoba to the Maritimes and into the USA. This uncommon native vine climbs over other vegetation in the wild by means of tendrils. Foliage is clean and lovely; leaves ovate to heart-shaped, looking good all season and turning yellow in autumn. Clusters of intricate tiny green-white flowers form in a ball at the end of a flattened flower stalk in spring. These are followed by showy, large clusters of dark blue berries hanging on long pedicels, creating a very elegant effect. While it would be happiest (and grow tallest) in the woodland garden, it will adapt quite nicely to nearly full sun in average garden soil. Seed wild collected in Ontario.
Germination Instructions: Cold treatment required.
