RE: Please ID this fragrant plant

Hi, Leah, thanks... I googled Polygonum Aubertii, very close, but not it. Polygonum Aubertii is supposed to be hardy to zone 4. This one is not hardy, and is not woody vine. Its vine will all turn soft ( like sweet potato vines) when it is below freeze temp. I have to bring it inside for the winter time. It is very drought resistant.

To add a little more information. I know this plant can be eaten as veggie... I have never tried. This plant grow small bubblet/small pea size ball shape thingies at where the joint of stem and leaves. I think it can be propagated using this little ball shape thingies. very resilient plant.

Its flowers smell like lilac and honeysuckle... very nice and pleasant .
