I have this kinda ivy growth in my flower bed and on my fence . It grows quickly and all over the place . It it didnít spread so it would be pretty . And idea what itís called? Each time I will it out ... I blink it is comes back . I have left it and it just spreads like wildfire.

You can download a plant identification app and see what it is. I use a free app called PlantNet you take a picture and it suggests what the plant may be.

Could it be kudzu? If so, I'd rip it out. It is a notorious weed that takes over everything.

There are lots of types of ivy type nuisances.I usually just google and find the image that matches the best. Then you can get ideas on how to remove it.

hand--I just downloaded that app but cancelled when I saw there was a cost. Do you know of any free plant ID ones? All the ones I searched had an undisclosed fee.

Thanks!

Do you have a picture? Grapevine fits the description as does kudzu.
