A perennial climbing vine native to Québec. Still little known, the species charms with its beautiful lobed foliage. The little whitish flowers, often hidden under the leaves, bloom in springtime. Its blue-black fruit, gathered in bunches on the female plants, are toxic for humans, but provide food for certain birds. They contain a seed in the shape of a crescent moon, whence the name of the plant.
