Cocculus laurifolius

Evergreen, Shrubs, Trees

Himalayan native useful as screen, background plant. Grows slowly at first, then moderately fast to 25 ft. or more. Usually multistemmed shrub with arching, spreading growth as wide as high, though it can be kept smaller with pruning. Staked and trained as a tree, it takes on an umbrella shape. Long, willowy branches are as easy to train as vines; fastened to a trellis, they make an effective screen. Can also be espaliered. Shiny, leathery, oblong leaves to 6 in. long have three strongly marked veins running from base to tip.
