Elephant Creeper also know as Hawaiian baby woodrose

Argyreia nervosa


Elephant Creeper is a vigorous vine native to India, introduced world-wide. It has large, leathery heart-shaped leaves, which are white on the underside due to hairs. It is called elephant creeper because of the large leaves which look like elephant ears.

Hawaiian baby woodrose (Argyreia nervosa) is definitely not an infant in size, as its heart-shaped leaves can grow to 1 foot in length, and the vine may clamber to 30 feet. Its lavender-pink trumpet-shaped flowers are of more moderate dimensions, however, usually about 2 inches across and 3 inches long with maroon centers. When open, the woody seedpods look like miniature roses, explaining the plant's common name. Although similar to morning glory in culture, Hawaiian baby woodrose forms tubers that make it perennial in U.S.
