About 3 or 4 years ago a woman clipped a vine from her garden And gave it to me. She said it would blossom big beautiful clusters of flowers. I put it in a jar of water until it grew roots then planted it in soil. This is the first time it has bloomed. Can you tell me the name of this vine and the weather temperatures it can withstand. I plan on moving to the mountains and I would like to take it with me, but the temperature in the mountains where I will be moving can get slightly below zero degrees. I have attached a photo. Thank you.

Not hardy at all, AFAIK. Makes a fine house plant though.
