My wife came home with two potted plants and asked me to wrap with wire mesh so that vines can attach. The plant has a cute lantern shaped flowers. I searched all over the web but 17 years later, we can't find the name. Please help!

Thank you very much.

Hi Gongo and welcome to NGA!

What you have there is Ceropegia ampliata.

Taper Vine (Ceropegia ampliata)
