This one is taking over the garden. We did not plant it. Broad green leafs, prickly/spiny vine that is moist and snaps pretty easily, but you can get stuck. Big yellow flowers open in the morning, and seem to close later in afternoon or night. (closed in pictures). Grows like a weed almost a foot to two a night.

    It may be Zucchino Rampicante. It is a large vining golden zucchini and it has been known to take over. The leaves can be anywhere between and 12-18 inches wide and it runs everywhere.

    The plants produce large yellow squash anywhere between 15-48 inches long.

    Not sure, but it is a good possibility.

    Hope This Helps,
