New trumpet vine - Dig it up?
I planted an "Indian Summer" Trumpet Vine last fall near the telephone pole in our front yard and it now looks dead to me. I started researching online and apparently that's how they look and they're impossible to kill. All well and good but in the process I was mortified to read all the horror stories about how invasive this plant is.
It's an ugly pole and I planted the vine to cover it up (as well as attract hummers) so I don't mind if it takes over. However, I'm concerned about runners since I have other plants nearby (grasses, perennials, a scotch broom and a little farther away roses and shrubs). Should I do something while the plant is still dormant? What if I dig up the plant and put it in a container with the bottom removed?
