I am trying to find the name of a plant that was a rage in the late 70’s & 80’s as a hanging/ cascading pot plant indoors.
I thought it was called Grape Ivy…………… ??????
The leaves are very waxy, almost round with a fluted/laced edge. It has tiny white trumpet shaped flowers with purple spots in the throat that hang like a bunch of grapes. The leaves turn dull & grey green when the plant needs watering.
Thanks for your help in naming this favourite of mine.
Sorry Terri, but that description doesn’t fit any plant that I know. The ‘Grape Ivy’ is a plant called Cissus rhombifolia. Don
