An assassin vine is a carnivorous plant, much like its cousins the wolfberry bush[1] and cheya.[2] When not hunting, an assassin vine appears as a normal plant. It has the ability to animate the plants around it, making them strangle prey and deposit it at the assassin vine's roots to provide compost.[3]

Assassin vines are known to grow in Westcrown's Ramble Gardens, as are giant flytraps.[4] A particularly leafy variety of assassin vine also inhabits the jungle covered Sudisan Peaks of the Valashmai Jungle in distant Tian Xia.[5]

Druids can combine their magic with ordinary grapevines and grow facsimiles of an assassin vine.[6]
