This plant grows all over my wooded backyard in what seems to be both a vine all over our fence (and difficult to remove) as well as single standing plants in sporadic locations (which I’ve pulled out and have a simple root). Leaves sometimes are reddish and green. It may be originating on the other side of our fence where there are many large trees and an old creek bed that could at times have water in it.

    Top photo is definitely Wisteria. It will pop up everywhere, but you’ll enjoy the flowers once it becomes a tall vine.

    Very invasive. I’d get rid of it while it’s small. Once it takes off, it will take over.
