Thanks Mickey,
I haven't yet tackled trying to remove the vine yet. I
will probably do it sometime this week. It seems a
shame to destroy the plant. Maybe I will try to clip
off the affected leaves and see if I suffer a repeat
occurance. I don't know why I am being so sentimental
about keeping this variegated aquilegia, I have a
ziploc baggie full of seeds from this plant. It would
be very easy to restart a new plant.
