Its looks like a wild morning glory. I have them here. It's has a beautiful blue flower that is somewhat larger than a regular morning glory. Build something for it to climb upon. It really is a gorgeous plant.
I was thinking the same thing, since the leaf in the OP reminded me of my passion flower plant.
Ipomoea purpurea is what the name is. Google Impmoea purpurmea pictures/Its looks like a wild morning glory. I have them here. It's has a beautiful blue flower that is somewhat larger than a regular morning glory. Build something for it to climb upon. It really is a gorgeous plant.
This plant comes back every year. When I first saw it about 20 years ago it was on a spot of my property where I don't normally go. It was such a nice flower I decided to dig it up and take it to my wife to see if she could transplant it successfully. When I dug it up I found that it came from a tuber looking thing about the shape and size of a large fat cigar. She planted the thing and now it is huge. It is invasive as it pops up in different and sometimes distant locations but when small it is easy to pull up.Morning glory or passion plant -- could be either. It's probably too late in the season to get blooms. As I understand it, morning glory is an annual in my zone (7b), but a passion plant will be back in the spring. I guess I'll find out then.
I just went out and looked at mine. Mine have tendrils but they are not corkscrewed. They are about 6 inches long and straight, no curls at all. It doesn't appear that they serve any purpose as they aren't used for climbing.
This is all new to me. The plants came up from runners or some underground thing. The fruits, if you can call them that, were damaged by caterpillars. We just let the caterpillars do their thing. I think we are talking about something different. This had a blue flower with orange and red centers.I didn't have any problems with my Passiflora being invasive. I don't know what species you had, but didn't you eat the fruit? It is heavenly (and will cure what ails you). Did your volunteers come up from seed? or runners? I suspect seed. I left no fruit on the ground to grow new plants, but harvested and ate/gave away all the fruits. I cut the ripe ones in half and scoop the pulp (seeds and all) out with a spoon and eat it that way. I had the species "edulis" which may be tastier than other species.
Did you find a tuberous or rhizome looking thing when you dug it up?UPDATE: I added a small iron arch to the entrance of my stone patio, dug up the vine in question, and planted it so it will grow up the arch. We'll see if it survives the winter -- or the transplant.
