If you live south of the Mason/Dixon line, you are aware of this plague. It creeps quickly, engulfing buildings, vegetation and anything still long enough to allow it to cover it.
Kudzu, the scourge of the South.
I rode the rural roads today and came across some small patches kudzu in bloom. Kudzu can grow up to 2 to 3 feet a DAY in all directions, is highly resistant to any sort of herbicide and is the ingredient to many recipes. Don't believe me...
The flowers are small, a purple/fuchsia color and have a strong grape Kool-Aid scent (I kid you not). You can Wiki it for some more fascinating facts but for all that is good, holy and merciful...DON'T PLANT ANY OF IT! YOU WILL REGRET IT!!!
Oh, I never leave home without my traveling companion. She loves going over dirt roads, it looks like she's having a seizure.
