What Is This Creeping Vine?

Posted by scorpgirl24 z7NJ (My Page) on

It's varigated-silver and green. In the early spring it has yellow flowers that resemble a snap dragon. It is creeping under my neighbor's fence into my yard. I can post a photo later-I have to go to work now. It was nice before it went beyond a certain point. Does anyone know what this describes? Is it an invasive weed that I will have to deal with, or a ground cover that was planted? My neighbor didn't plant it. Thanks.

RE: What Is This Creeping Vine?

Yes, it does. While it is not technically a weed, many consider it a noxious weed. It can be very invasive depending on your location.

Scorpgirl, buyorsell, it's one of those groundcovers that can be invasive depending on where you live and your conditions. When I lived in northern NJ I could not get it to thrive at all, just smallish clumps would make it through the winters. I had it on the north east side of my home and it was kept on the dryish side. I guess with a little more moisture it would have been happier.
I'd have loved it to spread! but then again I'm one of those nuts that plants creeping charlie and common day flower!
