1. most summer squash are in bush form.

2. There are two zucchini substitutes frequently grown for summer squash. The C.moschata Trombocino is the most popular. Actually a form of butternut. The other is a the Lagenaria siceraria variety Cucuzzi sometimes sold as Italian squash. Both are rampant vining.
