This one is C. woodii, now renamed. The entry includes macros of leaves, blooms, tubers.
String of Hearts (Ceropegia collaricorona subsp. collaricorona)

The other entries in the search results are variegated versions, although there does not seem to be an non-variegated version of this plant, and "pinkness" seems to be a product of exposure, not something an individual specimen either has or has not.

Actually, we do have images in our database. Ceropegia woodii is a synonym for
String of Hearts (Ceropegia collaricorona subsp. collaricorona)

A couple of cultivars:
String of Hearts (Ceropegia collaricorona subsp. collaricorona 'Variegata')
Rosary Vine (Ceropegia collaricorona subsp. collaricorona 'Pink Edge')

I am now very confused.
According to link below from The Plant list..... Ceropegia woodii is the recognized name, is this information out of date?

Yes, this site uses the Catalogue of Life as authority since it is updated on a regular basis.

The Plant list shows a date of 3/23/2012, while the CoL data is from 26 February, 2018. http://www.catalogueoflife.org...

Thank you Lin..
I have book marked that link.
I hate all this name changing.....wait another 10 years and it will be called something new /or revert back to name 100 years ago.
Different when DNA gets involved.

Silversurfer, it has become so challenging to know a plant by one name for many, many years and suddenly you find it's been changed to something else! Name changes seems to be happening a lot the past couple of years. Just recently many in the Chirita genus were changed to Primulina ... and then suddenly changed back! Blinking Confused Blinking

It will be different when DNA is regularly used; maybe the plant world will all straighten out and we'll see less changes. In ten years I'll be 80 and probably won't know what's what with any plant. Rolling on the floor laughing

Don't want to disappoint you, but I doubt that DNA is going to change this name-game. There are no rules how many difference there should be in the DNA between two species, let alone between two genera or families. Well, I had just changed my orchids to Brasiliorchis to find out they are Maxillaria again. Keeps one busy Rolling on the floor laughing
