Identification?

jenmarieberrySeptember 24, 2013

Hello fellow gardeners! I am wondering if someone might help me identify this houseplant that I have. I hope I am in the right section of the forums but please let me know where I should be posting if not. This plant was adopted by me from my mother in law. She took a cutting off of a plant of a friends on Nova Scotia and it didn't do very well at her house. I took it and stuck it in my south facing window and its done very well! It's even just got the most beautiful white flowers with reddish violet interiors. I have yet to have any luck identifying it. It's definitely loves to climb and has teardrop shaped delicate leaves. I've attached a picture of the flower and as I can't figure out how to attach more than one photo, I can attach another if need be. Thanks so much for any information!

Looks to me to be Clerodendrum thomsoniae ("Bleeding Heart Vine") - it IS a climber but doesn't twine, only needs something to support it.
