    You are all very knowledgeable so I know that someone out there knows what these vines are! They were here when we bought the house 19 years ago. They grow up the lattice work (and all thru the yard!) and have the most beautiful pink bloom. I have tried finding the name but can’t…have seen some that looked pretty close but not exactly!!
    Thanks for looking
    Mary

    Resembles a variety of Clematis I know of as the Belle of Woking. We use to grow Clematis at our place before we moved.

    Google "Varieties of Clematis" and see what you get. HTH.

    And the leaves are more like a passion flower vine, but not those flowers! Is it fragrant? There are jasmines with that sort of leaf.

    Different varieties of Clematis have different foliage. Differing shapes and color foliage.

    EDITED: Please bear in mind I am not adamantly stating that what you have IS Clematis, just telling you they resemble some Clematis.

    Oh, I understand!!! LOL :D I know they look like some that I have looked up but then it seems like the ones that I looked up had different leaves. Then I look up the "leaves" and get different flowers!!!!!!!!! Go figure! LOL :?: :roll: :roll:

    I have no idea, they are pretty though! Have you not got a local garden centre you can take a sample in and ask them?

    Hi Melissa!

    What you have there is Calystegia hederacea ‘Flore Pleno’

    Common name Japanese False Bindweed - that's why it's coming up all over your yard! Prettier than the normal bindweed though. Here's a link - good photo but French site http://gardenbreizh.org/photos/Oli/photo-112968.html

    If you google the full latin name you can find out more about it! I read that it likes moist soil in a sunny position and it can be invasive so best confined to a pot (!).

    ( Wouldn't you know that I would wind up with a "weed" )

    Ah Mary, but it's a really beautiful weed. Prettier than a lot of "proper" plants! I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I took a trip to Chicago a while back, and one of the arboretums had a big sign telling about the various plants there. One of them was the wild onion. I almost fell down laughing. What they were so proudly touting is a weedy menace in the south! So, enjoy your "weed". I wouldn't mind having weeds that look like that!

    No problem! :lol:
    I have had these growing on the lattice work for the 19 years that we have lived here and never knew what they were called. As far as I know, no one around has them!!! Never seen any!!
    I do have the Clematis and one variety that blooms in the later summer called Sweet Autumn and it has the best smell! I will post a picture of it if I can find it!
    I love flowers and roses too! :lol: :wink:
    If I were in better shape to care for them I would have nothing but!!!

    Whenever you want to do a search to find out whet a plant is, go here. It is a very good spot to find things out.

    I guess what is one an's "weed" is another's "flower" :lol: :wink:
    I do think the pink flowers are pretty and they are on lattice on the fornt and sides of my porch. at least they come up every year! They do spread so I have to transplant them back to the porch! :roll:
    And if I knew how to send them I wold send you some!!

    Mary I think that's Clematis armandii? Smells sweet and the leaves are evergreen if it's not too cold a winter? One of my favourites!

    It dies back in the winter time! And comes back in the spring! I would like for it to stay all year!
