Description

Jackson Smilax is a hardy native evergreen vine. It got its name when it was used to decorate tables in Alabama when Stonewall Jackson came to town. There are many specimens used to frame doorways in Birmingham and Huntsville. It is a wonderful Christmas green. It grows from an underground tuber which serves as a storage chamber for water and sugars. Some sites say it grows as tall as 12 feet, but in my experience a vine with a large tuber system can easily reach twice that length. It requires a few years to reach it’s maximum potential. And don’t worry about the thorns-this vine, unlike other Smilax,has none.
