Greenbrier leaf changing colors

Greenbrier Leaf Turned Orange 6839

Here’s quite a different leaf that I saw at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center on February 3, 2013. It’s from a greenbrier vine, Smilax bona-nox, a species whose leaves can turn colors in seasons other than autumn. The mottling that you see here is also typical of this vine’s leaves, as is the prickle at the tip.
