Adlumia fungosa B. S. Walters

Forests, rocky shores, and thickets; seems to do well on islands in the Great Lakes (some small ones as well as those mapped), and (southward) on forested dunes.

Our only vine in this family, distinctive in the persistent spongy corolla of definitely united petals.

Though native in forests, this is occasionally cultivated as an ornamental, and at least the Ingham Co. specimen suggests "Probably escaped from cultivation."  Often associated with some soil disturbance, this species can occur in small numbers in rocky woods and on cliffs and rocky shores, but may become briefly abundant after clearlng, then quickly retreating into the seedbank.
