Cissus discolor - Rex Begonia VineRegular price $24.00
This plant is not a Rex Begonia but it is commonly known as the Climbing Rex Begonia Vine although it is part of the grapevine family (Vitaceae). It's leaves are gorgeously coloured and resemble those of a Begonia Rex with distinct white/silver markings on a velvety green leaf with a purple/pink midrib, the underside of the leaves and the stem of the vine is a rich purple/magenta. This vine is fast growing in the warmer months and an excellent climber as its tendrils will twist around anything they can get a hold of!
