Syngoniums are tropical vines with attractive arrow-shaped leaves that come in a variety of color variations. Younger plants are upright and bushy looking very unlike a vine, but as they mature, they send out vining stalks. They can be trained on a trellis or used as a hanging specimen. If desired they can also be kept as an upright and compact plant by winding the vines around and anchoring them in the soil around the main plant.
