This vine just appeared last year and I have no clue what it is.
Everyone here is so helpful and I really appreciate the information!

Looks like a Bleeding Heart Vine (Clerodendrum) to me.

Oh, I sure hope so. I have been wanting one! Mine doesn't have any white on the bloom, only light green with pink. Is that because I have been treating it like a weed?

I don't know! We have one, but we only obtained it within the past couple weeks. We have it in a hanging basket, and haven't yet really researched the plant's needs.

Clerodendrum x speciosum does not have the white part. I think that's what you have.

the flowers look like little butterflies? i have 2, one pinkish red and the other orangish red, very close colors. what a nice surprise! they come back from winter freezes here in newberry florida and if not a terrible winter the plant may escape freezing.

Thanks Larkie, I will, it is too pretty to lose. How big do these vines grow in one season?
