Earlier in August I referred to a very invasive vine, farmers call it a potato weed. One vine can cover much area mashing down hay and making it unusable. This one is in a corner of my yard has covered my 100 year old sage bush and jasmine vine. I have pulled so much of it up but with all the rain it has gotten ahead of me. Any information on what it is and controlling it will be helpful.

    The top picture looks like clematis ternata. Smells nice, looks pretty, but needs to be on a fence or a wall.

    Bottom picture looks like matelea. A rare plant… Desirable.

    No not that one, Stone. I have looked again, think maybe more than one vine and that is what is confusing me. Think I’ll just start pulling until I get it out. The one in the hay field is different and postive Id for bindweed. Thanks
