This vine has been growing happily for about 5 or 6 years in the sun and has never bloomed. I'm a flower floozie, so I can't imagine buying something that wasn't going to bloom. Can anyone tell me what this is?

Reminds me of Carolina Jasmiine.

Hilarious! That's actually the one vine I would never, ever buy. I used to be surrounded by it in the East Bay and had to keep my windows closed the whole time it was blooming because the smell was so strong.

The leaves on this one are smaller and finer.
