We got this plant back in spring but have no idea what it is exactly, we planted it in a decent sized pot, but I would like to plant it outside somewhere if I could. But I have no idea if it could endure the winter here. So I wanted to ask if anyone could identify it for me to figure this out. I live in a 7 hardiness zone.

@Kev101, what does the trunk look like (more photos)? Is it starting to twine or did it just not get enough sun? Are the leaves opposite or alternate?

It almost looks like a Goldfish plant. The Latin escapes me.

I'll put some other photos up in a bit. What exactly do you mean by twine (sorry not a plant expert) ? I would say this plant has got pretty good sun all summer and spring. I forgot to mention earlier in spring it did bloom flowers that were smallish pink flowers if that helps id it. Also I noticed this plant's leaves die pretty fast constantly leaving leaves all lover the place.

More than one plant has the common name Goldfish Plant; maybe it's a Nematanthus?

Nematanthus is the one I was thinking of. 'Smallish pink flowers' would not be that.

I was thinking possibly some sort of jasmine as well.
