Silver Lace Vine invasive?

Theresa24(8b/9a NE FL)June 29, 2005

Hi all....

I planted a Silver Lace Vine seedling last year that did fairly well but never quite made it to bloom. Then over the winter, I accidently "divided" it with a shovel. Well, I just sort of rplanted both parts as I thought there was plenty of room on the trellis. Well, now I have Silver Lace Vine popping up EVERYWHERE in my garden. I know it is not from seed since it didn't bloom last year so I am thinking that by cutting into the roots, I encouraged them to branch off and go wild. Is this typical of this vine? I am trying to pull it all out but the runners must be so deep cuz I just keep breaking off the shoots. Help!

I did a search on google, and on another forum a poster reports that it wascoming up from runners all over her yard as well.

Round-up, very carefully applied may help.
