    One of two seedlings growing in bare earth in a small bed around a tree on the pavement. An adult vine, well established, growing up the building about 7 m away. The vine also reaches down to the basement level (the land slopes steeply down to the road below) so that it appears to be emerging from that lower level. However, there are some thickish stems emerging from the same level as the footpath. There is hard substrate between the adult vine and the earth beneath the tree. Material from nearby adult collected 23 Jan 2023 (AK385776).
