Notes:

Hello, I recently had 26 pines removed from my property in Marietta GA. About a week afterwards this vine appeared. Its growing all over my yard especially in the grass. It breaks at every joint and so I cant really pull it up. Any help identifying it would be appreciated. Thanks.

    this is trumpet vine, Campsis radicans, a native vine http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/644/ beautiful flowers but can be rather invasive in a small garden!

    The hummingbirds love it but it can be aggressive. And it is a free seeder.

    Thank you for the answer. I have been pulling it up where ever I see it and so have not seen the flowers yet. We do have a lot of humming birds so I may try and let it grown in certain places.

    Sorry, I am just now seeing this (June 2011) but I want you know that this is some kind of GIANT version of the trumpet vine…I have the normal kind, and then, there’s THIS one. I originally bought it as something labeled Swamp Jasmine. It is horribly invasive. the only way to kill it is to snip it, and put the nozzle of the Round-up botter directly on the snipped piece, and spray it – careful not to spray it on the other stuff around. I’m telling you, that’s the only way. I’ve tried it all. I finally have managed to get it under control, but it still pops up. Just sayin…
