|Poison ivy with its typical three leaves.|
|Japanese honeysuckle. Did you know that the flowers start out white and fade to yellow?|
|Bindweed (wild morning glory) Its roots can be as far as 30' underground.|
|Trumpetcreeper. This was originally planted by a previous owner who liked its orange flowers. However, it has since become out of control.|
|Virginia creeper. This is often mistaken for poison ivy. However, there are two important differences: it has five leaves instead of three and handling it does not make you itch.|
|Wild grape vine|
|Mile-a-minute. This vine with the interesting triangular leaves also has thorns.|
|This picture has at least three of the vines mentioned above. Can you name them?|
If you want more information on invasive vines, go to the USDA site on invasive plants or check out the Ortho book, Controlling Weeds. Of the many books I have read on weeds, I found this one the most useful.
*Does anyone remember Lost in Space and what the Robot always said to Will when there was trouble?
