Traditional Medicinal Uses of Rhoicissus tridentata
Indications: Administered to both people and animals. Applied in a magical sense. Caution: Harmful to people or animals.
Rhoicissus tridentata produces small, greenish-yellow flowers that are borne in tight clusters on a densely hairy inflorescence in late summer. The trifoliate leaves are a fresh green when they appear, turning grey when mature. The decorative clusters of purplish, edible grape-like berries attract birds to the garden. Rhoicissus tridentata is ideal for screening on a fence, cascading down a bank and it also makes a good subject for a large hanging basket. It is very frost hardy and drought tolerant.
