ID Help Needed

mrsdrjonesJune 24, 2007

I need help identifying a few plants I have growing in the yard:

These 2 are from a wildflower pack that I bought from Target. I think the 1st may be a Red Clover. The 2nd keeps growing, but doesn't have any buds on it yet.

These 2 vines are growing on the side of my shed, they look similar, but the leaves are slightly different. I don't like unidentified vines and will definitely work to get rid of them if they are something harmful.

First is red clover, not a native plant. Second is scarlet flax, also not native.

Thanks to everyone.
Anybody have a guess as to what the vines are?

Red clover would have the flower head nested at the base of the top leaf. The plant in your picture appears to have a ring of bracts at the base of the flower head, only found in American species of clover.
