Plump and delicate, the marbled silver-green, heart-shaped leaves dangle from the slender burgundy-colored stems which look delicate but are quite wiry. Most often allowed to loop and trail downwards, they can also be trained up a small trellis or topiary frame. Tiny, vase-shaped flowers are pink and magenta. Often produces aerial tubers (“beads”) that, still attached to the mother plant, may be planted to produce new vines to create a fuller, bushier effect. Ceropegia linearis subsp. woodii
