Fringed Twinevine Card: 113A
Fringed twinevine (Funastrum cynanchoides) forms a tangled web of stems that twist their way through a support plant. I like the other common name of ‘climbing milkweed’ somewhat better. This species is named for the African vining succulents in the genus Cynanchum. The flowers are reminiscent of little stapeliad flowers from the old world, one of my favorite groups pf plants.
