Another exotic looking discovery in May of 1984, our very first spring down in Georgia, USA
Pieter's Mom was still alive at that time... Every Sunday I wrote her a letter about the week's events.
Yes, it is a native vine here and attracts hummingbirds!
It can become invasive though as its many suckers grow very fast and also its seeds will grow up again.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture lists the vine as an invasive weed...
To us it was a new, exotic discovery!
