More of a rambling groundcover than a vine, but still a useful food source for pipevine swallowtail butterflies. Inch-long intricately shaped flowers are held among the heart-shaped silver-veined leaves. I haven't noticed those in the few years this has lived in our garden, but I know they've appeared because I've spotted several seedlings volunteering in the general vicinity of the original plant. Native to South America.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: waterfall pondside
