Does anyone know the Latin name for this plant?
I think maybe Danish Ivy is a trade name???

I've never heard of "Danish Ivy" but "Swedish Ivy" is a common name for Plectranthus: http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Swedish+Ivy&butto...

Apparently this is Cissus rhombifolia or a cultivar of it.
Also called Grape Ivy and also Oak leaf Ivy.

Sorry, but I added the photos later.
I did not mean to confuse anyone.

Green Grin! Thanks Caroline ... I wondered how I'd missed them. It's a great looking plant, I have one in a hanging basket out in a tree in my backyard. It looked a little weary for awhile but now that spring is here it's perking up nicely. Have you submitted your lovely photo's to the database?

Caroline: I just went and looked at all of the images waiting for approval and don't see yours so you should definitely upload them again!
