The first thing I find interesting about this succulent vine is that it is in the cucumber and squash family. Of course, its almost perfectly round dollar-like leaves are also quite striking. With its stringy tendrils it can climb a small trellis inserted in its container and it also makes for a great hanging basket. Silver Dollar Succulent Vine was fairly recently discovered in 1939 and like so many unique succulents, it calls the African island country Madagascar its home. Its genus name Xerosicyos actually means ?dry cucumber?. Bring it inside for winter so it can develop into a nice-sized specimen in a few years.
