Can you tell me what this invasive weed is? Some of these are almost 8 feet tall, growing and invading rapidly. Thank you! Betty Spiker

    Walter eta al, These invasives are Golden Rain Tree. We had a Golden Rain Tree that died in this area about 5 years ago. Obviously, the seeds and roots continue to thrive. This species is highly invasive, we now have about 300 plants to dig up. Please don’t recommend this tree as an ornamental. Thanks, Betty Spiker

    Maybe golden raintree (Koelreuteria paniculata) (?). Click on images from the included link below to enlarge. Best wishes!

    Could this be a variety of Boxelder? Leaves look very similar. Thanks! Betty

    In addition to this plant not flowering nor having berries, the plant I sent in is a bush / small tree, not a vine. Per Walter’s definition, the plant has variegated leaves. The plant I asked about has solid green leaves. From Walter: “Common Name: Variegated Porcelain Vine A spectacular vine with very unique coloring, unlike that of any other vine. The green, grape-like leaves are heavily splashed with white and are attached to the stems by bright pink petioles. The new growth is infused with pink as well. In the fall, multicolored clusters of berries are formed. Each one has a porcelain-like finish and unique color, and the different hues occur together in the same infructescence. They range from creamy yellow to pale lilac, amethyst purple, and bright turquoise. These fascinating clusters of fruit are unrivaled by any other perennial vine.” Any other suggestions?

    Don’t think it’s ampelopsis. These have never bloomed nor had berries. And there are hundreds of them, very invasive Do you have another idea?
