Cynanchum marnierianum

This is another one of those plants we've had around forever...well, for at least 35 years. We just call her "Twiggy" - except on formal occasions! (The name comes from the Greek 'kynos', dog and 'anchien' to choke, referring to the toxicity of the plants, but our dogs have never shown an interest.) The flowers start out as little "bird cages"...quite cute.
