Squaw Vine Plant
The Squaw Vine Plant is a type of plant that grows along the ground instead of growing upward. Dark green leaves often are seen on the stem with two leaves that are on opposite sides to deliver a symmetrical appearance to the plant. When you look at the leaves of the plant, you'll notice that there is a thin yellow line in the center. Once the Squaw Vine Plant matures, you'll see white flowers that sometimes have a pink center. Leaves on the plant retain their green color throughout the year.
Once the plant has produced flowers, it usually produces edible fruit, as well. You'll notice the fruit on the plant in the summer and early fall months. The plant is often seen growing on the east coast but can be seen in areas of Texas and other southwestern states. It usually grows near rocks or on rocky surfaces, especially near streams and rivers. The Squaw Vine Plant grows best in moist soil and areas with little to no sunshine. Seeds take about three months to begin growing to a sufficient level to where the plant can sprawl along the ground and provide the beautiful flowers and fruits that seen.
