I was getting frustrated with the progress of this Canary bird vine until I noticed that it had decided to go over to the neighbor's side of the fence where I couldn't really see its new growth. I'm hoping that it will smother our ugly old tree stump. (I also realized the stump could have holes bored to become a bee post!)
In another area, I have inadvertently arranged a dueling vine scenario. I planted one called Love in a Puff! (Cardiospermum sp.) only to find that the Cypress vine (Ipomea quamoclit) I had last year had sown itself just behind it. So far I haven't had the heart, but I will likely pull out the Ipomea since I have it in another spot uncontested.
