Pileostigia viburnoides 

One more vine that you probably have not heard of but a handsome and vigorous one it is. Sometimes called Climbing Hydrangea to which it’s related, it uses short aerial roots to attach itself to the bark of a convenient tree. It’ll climb at about a foot a year to some 20’. Flowers will remind you of a lacecap hydrangea but a very open one at that. Another Chinese plant, it does best in dappled light and a sheltered spot.
