Help ! Hummingbird/ trumpet vine question

suzyqute(z4 WI)November 20, 2007

I planted Hummingbird vine this past spring,it grew like crazy in my zone 4 garden. it it as invasive as I've heard (lately ) I have it on trellis' attached to my 9+ ft off ground deck. Now, I'm worried it may devour my deck, do I have a problem ??? should I dig it up before it goes totally crazy ? or won't it go crazy ?? help , I don't want problems with it eating my deck !

Oh Yeah move it as far away from your house as you can !!
I moved mine and put them in the back 40 on fence rows still have to prune back every year as they throw out long vines to vine and vine again!! just a note also grab your seed pods as it will help keep down the invasion..
