Re: Please ID this vine


If you use a herbicide be sure to mix with some surfactant. If you cant find any add some cheap dish soap.

Alas, I've found it won't work on Hedera ivy.

Be warned that a fully successful battle against something like this can be measured in months or years. Gird yourself, and get helpers if you need them.

Let us know how it goes, and what you end up doing. It will add to the body of knowledge we all share.
Today was the second phase of the war (first phase was cutting off all the vines leading to the shed). I went into close quarters combat armed with a pry bar, hammer and jigsaw. I severed every vine growing up the hemlock tree.

And I ripped out all the new growth that sprouted up after I cut all the vines running up the shed.

Will report back in a week or two. Hopefully the ivy leaves dry up and fall off, leaving more space for the tree's leaves.

You go!

The key is keep at it, like a siege, chip chip chip. Don't so like I did and walk away, and have the vine metastecize again. Bear in mind, you might still be at this next year, but victory should be in sight.

Kill Kill Kill!

Re: Please ID this vine


Yes, it will kill any trees that it climbs. Get it off your tree trunks.

We have English ivy in a lot of the beds along with vinca vine.
I love English ivy and vinca vine - yes, theyíre invasive... I love invasive plants.

The plus side of vinca vine is it creeps along the beds and if you hate
to weed in the summer vinca vine is your friend. You do however have to keep
it under control as it doesnít share space well with other plants and flowers.

Itís also a great cover in areas where itís impossible to grow grass.
It densely fills in the area and it looks lush.

Before you kill it all, look around your property and see if there are areas
that would benefit from a English ivy ground cover.
