    Any Gardening Experts Out There?

    I know we all know alot about Disney, but how about gardening and plants.

    I have a mystery plant in my garden and no one seems to know what it is.
    It was in my back garden when we moved in a year ago. I though it was a flowering vine but it did not produce any flowers this past summer. I have cut it back for the winter but it went crazy covering alot of our fence.

    I hope someone can identify it and tell me if it is supposed to have flowers. I like lots of colour in my garden so I really don't want it if it is just going to stay green.

    OK, I know, pictures are kind of small. I will try to figure out how to make them bigger

    hard to tell from the pics but almost looks like the annoying weed vines we get around here...I cut them down every year(should really dig em up but am not that ambitious)
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    looks like a weed we get here - no flowers on them - get rid of them they are so bad - they choke all the plants in the garden and spread like wildfire - I still keep pulling them out all over the yard.

    The plant doesn't seem weedish, I am guessing they were put there on purpose by the previous owners of our house because of the latticework on the fence for it to climb. (I am still trying to figure out how to make my pictures bigger.) I know I did it once.

    there is a morning glory vine that looks similar - but that one has big blue flowers - the weed version looks just like that one - it depends on your preference- the person who owned this house before had these grassy things all around - i guess she thought they were decorative - they look just plain ugly to me and I'm allergic to them to boot - so they disappeared rather fast

    the vine you have is very pervasive - it was choking a lot of the stuff in my veggie garden and i had to be out there every day to get rid of it - it really speads quickly -

    wont here now- frost is on the way

    Not sure what it is, but when all else fails, try trimming it down, then spraying it with Roundup.
    I'm about to take on a battle myself.... some wild bermudagrass has infiltrated my veggie garden and took over the areas around my pumpkin plants. Bermuda is very hardy and is difficult to get rid of....

    Round up is great - but be careful dont get too heavy with it- my brother destroyed half of my fathers grass going after weeds
