Did I Make A Big Mistake?

About 4 weeks ago I planted a trumpet vine. After planting I started reading how invasive they are, suckers pop up everywhere. The vine is planted about 10 feet from a new septic system (tank) will the roots of trumpet do damage to my septic? At only 4 weeks it should be easy to move vine.

If you have an open field, about 20 miles away from your yard, that would be the place to plant it. You can also plant it in a BIG container and set it on concrete, but keep the pods picked off before they ripen, or they will re-seed all over the area.

No, no, you use that for the bindweed.
