I thought that it was a busy lizzie until i saw the tendril... my other busy lizzie doesn't have that.

Thanks a lot!

  • Its definitely not a busy lizzie - it's obviously a tendril climbing plant, but I'm not sure precisely what it is - similar to Mandevilla, but the leaves on yours look a little too soft and thin to be that. Whatever it is, those tendrils are looking for something thin and vertical to wrap round so it can climb up... – Bamboo Mar 20 '17 at 14:06

Possibly a passion fruit Passiflora edulis where the leaves are young and not yet forming a deeply cleft shape. Watch as the later leaves emerge and see if they become still a single leaf but with 3 lobes. Lots of images on Google of passion fruit leaves.

    I totally agree. My Passiflora edulis plants are grown from seed and the young basal leaves look exactly like this. – Alina Mar 20 '17 at 18:39

    Ah! Now I recall, I have indeed sowed some of the passionfruit seeds from the fruit few months back! Thanks a lot! – Yennie Mar 21 '17 at 1:46
