This vine is growing on a tree in PA in the wild. It is very old with thick vines near the ground and appears to be some kind of azalea, laurel or rhododendron. enter image description here

  • Looks like Euonymus. If it didn't vine, then Camelia. Dec 28, 2023 at 17:59
  • That's clearly in a hanging pot inside a house, not growing on a tree. Wrong picture?

That's one of the Camellia species/varieties, not sure which; it's not a vine, its a free standing shrub or small tree. 'Vine' refers to plants which climb or twine on a support or surrounding planting.

  • Ok folks it's growing outside 50 ft up a tree. I took a cutting and brought it inside. It's clearly a vine. Dec 30, 2023 at 14:31

    Can you add a photo of it growing in situ please, and how is it 'vining', is it scrambling, twining or attaching itself in some other way?
