  • OT: Another one... Is this a poisonous plant?

    As some of you recall, last week I posted asking about a plant. It turned out to be Virginia Creeper. Now this one is growing with it. What kind of vine might this be? Thanks!

    Seriously?

    Frank, that's a grape vine.
    Calvin, Wish list is to finish working on the new house, someday.
    Bored? Grab a rake, paint roller, or a cordless drill and come over!

      Sorry, not trying to an a$$. Kinda funny though.
      I suppose it could be some sort of wild grape that doesn't really bear much fruit if you've never seen it produce. Most likely it was put there by some birdy do-do.

      I really hope I don't end up eating crow on this one.

        Haha, Calvin.
        I would never guess that to be a grape vine. Now that you mention it, there are some grape vines on properties less than 1/4 mile from my house AND there are a lot of power lines directly above this picture!

          Thanks guys.
          That's what I remember too, Kevin, but just wanted to make sure this wasn't an odd ball.

                Ha! I'll admit, outside of figs, I know very little about everything else that is growing in my yard.

                  All you need is some Autumn Clematis and you'll have the aggressive/invasive vine trifecta!

                    The Chinese Clematis is a huge problem in my area.

                      I've had to deal with Virginia Creeper and wild grapes in my yard, but the porcelain berry vines take the cake on the aggressive weed which has caused me the most grief.

                        Oh man, forgot about that monster! I have to use Roundup on the neighbors brushline to keep it out of my dogwood tree.

                        I generally try to avoid using Roundup, but porcelain berry is a notable exception. Since my neighbors don't control it growing in their yard, I simply can't keep up with it with its crazy growth rate and massive root system. There were some large specimens by the time I got around to identifying these evil weeds and deciding to do something about them. I walked around our fence and property lines with a drill and a bottle of roundup. I drilled holes into the base of the stem and sprayed in Roundup to kill those bad boys.
