SuppleJack, Flagellaria indica

  • Also called ‘Whip Vine’, this is a fast and vigorous climber with a round, cane-like stem and long leaves.

  • The long leaves are unusual as their tips have been modified into tendrils to enable the plant to curl its way through the canopy.

  • It is found in mangroves and forests in eastern and the wetter tropical areas of the old world tropics, and is common in places such as along the Marrdja boardwalk.
