Yet another invasive............

catherinet(5 IN)September 8, 2008

As if the horrible japanese honeysuckle covering much of our 33 acre property wasn't enough to deal with, now I'm seeing hops vine growing everywhere. I'm thinking its our (central Indiana) kudzu. Bummer. I'm sure kudzu is on its way here too.

I can sympathize. We have the jap. honeysuckle and tons of kudzu. The kudzu reminds me of a monster from a '50s horror movie... it devours everything in it's path. If I've ever seen hops vine, I didn't know what it was. Good luck.

I fight the war with J. honeysuckle, poison ivy, virginia creeper and another vine with waxy rounded heart shaped leaves with nasty thorns in my woods. I buy brush killer concentrate and just keep after it. GL to you.
