    https://c2.staticflickr.com/8/7347/27963578791_c54d9db218_c.jpg Hi there, Is anyone able to identify this little vine for me please? It has been grown from a seed pod that was taken from the gardens at Powis Castle.. It was growing beautifully along a low wall of the cottage that you can stay in within the grounds of the castle (The Bothy if anyone is familiar). I'm keen to identify it if anyone can help. Looking forward to your replies! Many thanks in advance.
