trying to id this vine

bigsistah1November 11, 2008

I found an interesting vine along the roadside in CNY near a DEC wetlands. I have never seen this particular vine before. I did not notice it during the summer, but now that the leaves are off the trees, it really is noticeable.

It has very angular red stalks, and the seedpods look similar to the seedpods of a passion flower, but flatter, with multiple winged seeds. The seedpods are in groups. It seems to grow near the edges of scrub brush areas, winding up the small trees. I have pics of it if anyone wishes to see them to try to help me identify it.

I'd love to see the pictures but your member page has no way to contact you. ( email )

You could post the photos here on this post. Open a free account, upload the pictures ( no worries about the sizing) , then copy the HTML line beneath the picture and paste here along with any text. ( don't use a link) you can post multiple photos that way.
