Can anyone help me identify a vigorous climbing plant that keeps coming back each year [dies down in winter].  It has soft grape like leaves, mid green, small white flowers with 5 petals - they appear to be striped with green - this grows very quickly using tendrils.  I don't have a picture at present, but if anyone recognises from description I would be glad to hear from you.

Hi Jay Si, can only guess with no pic but white briony is a possibility

It may be an ornamental vine i.e. it does not produce useful fruit? Photo would help.

Many thanks, nutcutlet, it is a white bryony.
