Anredera is a genus of plants native to Latin America, the West Indies, Texas, and Florida. Some are naturalized in other regions (notably Mediterranean region and on various oceanic islands).[2] Most of them evergreen vines of dry scrubland and thickets. Members of the genus are commonly known as Madeira vines.[3] At least one species, A. cordifolia bears edible roots or tubers and leaves similar to those of Basella alba.
