Delicate tiny vine

For those of you who check both forums, I posted this in Name that Plant before I realized it was a better fit for the Weeds forum. It grows quickly and forms a tight coil around other plant stems. I don't think it is Bindweed because the leaves are long rather than arrow shaped. Although it grows to a very long length, the leaves and stem remain thin and delicate. I just pull it up and am not looking for help eradicating it, would just like to know the name.

RE: Delicate tiny vine

Actually, without casting aspersions and not knocking the many good botanists here, there is a greater concentration of knowledgeable plant identifiers over on NTP. All weeds are plants and all plants are grist to NTP's mill.

You had two replies over there last time I looked.

RE: Delicate tiny vine

Indeed, the NTP forum identified this as Asparagus asparagoides.
