Name of plant?

I was given this plant by a woman who has them growing on the side of her porch. She couldn't remember what they were called, and I'd love to get more of them. The plant is a perennial, and grows like a vine. Does anyone know what this plant is called?

RE: Name of plant?

and it looks like they are already infested with aphids ... all those black spots in the limbs and leaf stems ...

got rid of all my E.. years ago.. due to scale problems ...

free does not make this plant worthy .. IMHO ...

but you knock yourself out and make yourself happy ... regardless how i feel about them ... you can ask others opinions.. in the shrub forum ..


RE: Name of plant?

Very easy from cuttings. The piece in the pot could make about 6. I have it on a wall - it is self clinging and has no pests in my climate. Although it makes a great snail refuge.

RE: Name of plant?

only flora would call a minor infestation of snails .. no problem ... yikes .. lol '

BTW .. if you like it.. and can make it bug free [if in fact it has bugs???] .. then dont mind my opinion ... worse that can happen is that 5 .. 10 years down the line.. you decide i was right ... and then go to town on it with a flamethrower ...

who cares what others think ... its your garden ...

It's a snail refuge - they hide behind it on the wall but they do not harm it. It actually makes it easier to find the snails because I know where to look.
