Climb using antennae, sometimes ending with suction cups that allow it to attach and climb flat and even very smooth surfaces. On his way easily curl, which gives him further opportunity to be fixed. Mainly the beauty of the maiden grapes vine leaves, which are mostly green in summer and red before falling in autumn. It blooms in July and August with inconspicuous greenish-yellow, often hidden under foliage colors after overblown crumble. If you remain fruits, they are small, purple-black with a white...
