Vine I traded for last year thought it was Dead.
About 16" now I'm Sure it is NOT mature Yet. Just need to know if it is in the Right Spot. I thought is was a Red bud tree but it has no trunk, And Tendrils coming from the top.

I think it's one of the Dioscorea group...which to *me* means, quick incinerate it. But it might be more desirable than the ones I'm thinking of.

RE: Unknown Vine

Dioscorea villosa “Wild Yam”
Sounds like something I would trade for. I will keep for a few years. If it starts to become unruly, I will trash. dbarron you are in Zone 6/7, so we'll see. Thanks for the info.
