vine-ill roof feature


Recommended Posts

This is a trumpet vine (Campsis radicans), a native vine that can EAT a building, much like English ivy.

It is rooted in the crawl, and found its way up beside the 3 inch vent pipe and pushed through the vent boot to the light.

Buyer will nip in bud in crawl, but the brush may be thickest when removal time comes.

............my wife has tried (twice) to start one of these plants at the end wall of her garden shed. Too bad that neither one survived - I can't imagine why both succumbed [;)]. Well, I gotta get to work - I've got weed-wacking to do.......Greg

The vine is kind of a nuisance here, like honeysuckle. It climbed through tiny space more than twelve feet and pushed through the rubber boot to glory in the sunlight. There is a big bulge in the faux vinyl soffit that I did not disturb...assume it contains a spool of vine.
