Wild, old growth woody vine with (very sturdy) tendrils climbing and wrapping around hardwoods and pines in a mostly shaded mixed hardwood forest. Bark peels away easily from older sections of the vine. Clusters of purple to dark blue berries/fruits opposite leaves on stem. Leaves large (about the size of my hands) and somewhat heart shaped, smooth top surface, and very lightly lobed/serrated.
