A friend of a friend, gave me a start of this, as third in line gift, I didn't get the name of it. It spreads by underground runners and is doing quite well.

    Is that as much as the flowers open, Brenda? Do you have a detail so we can clearly see the shape of the leaf?

    They are morning glories. They open in the morning and are beautiful. Lavender outside and blue in the center. I have them on my cyclone fence and I love them!

    Here is another photo,hopefully, clearer. I know it is not a Morning glory, the bell shaped blooms rise on stiff stem from a bunch of leaves. Simular to coral bells.

    Don't know what it is but you can send me a start. I like it and can always use another vine.

    Based on the toothed leaf and the flower I would say you have "Cherry Bells," (Campanula punctata f. rubriflora "Cherry Bells") or something very similar.

    Thank you Douglas, you've done it again! "cherry bells" look exactly like my mystery flower.

    It looks like "Cherry Bells" and it is very invasive. I have it everywhere and can't get rid of it.
