Re: VA creeper was: Chinese ginger - Yo Kitty!


Sure can, Jim...dratted stuff!  I mean, yes, it's an attractive plant
growing up a tree in the fall when it turns red, but there is a
limit!  I class it right up there with wild grape and Hall's
honeysuckle as weed vines of the first order.  I have looked with
interest at the variegated form, but, like the variegated poke weed,
I just cannot convince myself to introduce it when I am in constant
battle with the species.
