help me identify this plant?

misslisamhamNovember 14, 2012

This plant was growing in a neglected area at the house in the (coastal) Bay Area that I just moved into. What I know about it:

- About two feet high

- Growing under a plum tree in a fairly shady area with lots of ivy

- Extending itself with a root, sending green shoots up every six inches or so

- No flowers that I've seen

Guesses? Questions?

Misslisamham, the verbal description doesn't give us a lot to go on. If you could upload a photo, it would help a great deal.

A picture would help. "Green" doesn't narrow it down much!

I'm sorry! I'm not sure what went wrong, but there was supposed to be a photo with the first posting. Here it is, and I'll send a subsequent photo of the roots.

A honeysuckle of some sort?

I first thought of honeysuckle, but it also looks like the lavender trumpet vine.
