Hi all! So happy to have found this forum. Would like some help identifying this vine I was given for mothers day. Unfortunetly none of the flowers are open so can only post pic of the buds and leaves. Thanks for the help!

Hope, if you bring the pot indoors for the winter, it will stay alive. If you leave it out in the cold, it will die. Mine is going on it's 4th year, climbing up a Plumeria, which is in a 25-gallon pot, and comes into the Florida room each fall.
