Native Vines

“When you remove the risk, you remove the challenge. When you remove the challenge, you wither on the vine.” Alex Lowe

This native vine has a number of other common names including: Devil's Darning Needles, Devil's Hair, Love Vine, Traveller's Joy, Virginia Virgin's Bower, Wild Hops, and Woodbine.
