Brenda, I can't help you with identifying your vines. I have a vine growing on my light at the end of my sidewalk. I do have a Climates vine there but I knew that the more aggresive vine was something else. I looked it up by the 'flower' clusters on it.Well, it is a milkweed vine. I left it grow and now I have milk weed pods!!! I wonder if any Monarch butterflies will find it. I hope someone can help you with your identification.pam
I just don't know,sorry but you have so much going on and it's all pretty :)
Can't name the leaves but I sure love your pictures!That butterfly one would make an amazing card!
Brenda, the first mystery plant with the spiky leaves looks like a Texas native hibiscus of some sort. That would be something you definitely like to have in your yard. I don't know how it'll take to transplanting. We had them growing up and they would die down to the ground in winter, even down here. Has it bloomed? They normally produce plenty of seeds for gathering. Can't help otherwise, but finding that is a treat!
I recognize the first one-we have it here on our place too. I don't know what it is though-sorry!
Are the spiky leaves on a pin oak tree?
Have you tried your local cooperative extension? I think they are all over the country. We also have a county master gardener program that I believe is tied to the coop ext. Whenever I have a question I try there. Good luck identifying your vines!
Sorry, I'm of no help on this either! Love your butterfly photo; one of the prettiest ones I've seen.
Thevines in the first picture and previous posts, look a little like Virginia Creeper to me. So, if that is the case, all you can do is pull, or spray. I have found them and poison ivy are easier to kill, when I pull the vines up in late winter. Good luck!
I love your little pup. My dogs like to sit and watch me do yard work too. Oh, if they only had opposable thumbs, I would put them to work too!
Sorry Brenda..They don't look like anything we have in the east except maybe that spiky one..Cute Pup..lots of help, I'll bet..
