Purchased today as a "foliage" houseplant. Looked through two books and didn't see anything to match. Thanks.

Thanks, but it's not an ivy. It almost has a structure like bleeding heart.

We agree it's not an "IVY" it's a Cissus vine. This is why we try
never to use common names which only lead to confusion.

Here is a link that might be useful:

I'll go c Cissus, too. Commonly called "Grape Ivy", this name is only half right. It is in the grape family (Vitaceae). Not at all an ivy.
