Well hello Tuesday you are cold and dry for me being Tuesday it's plant day and today's plant is the Kudzu a fast growing weed. Back in 1876 China & Japan introduced it to American gardeners they saw a leafy vine which climbed easily over porches providing lots of lovely shade. It was also useful to farmers because it was good at holding the soil in place and made great food for farm animals.
However, they had no idea how much would love growing in the southern states, in the Asian mountains the Kudzu would die during the winter months but in America it just grows and grows out of control. In just one summer it can grow in size to cover a house it also grows over other trees and buildings blocking out the sun and killing other plants.
Plants can reproduce in a few ways such as making seeds, spreading their roots sideways underground or by spreading out above ground using special stems called runners. Just to make itself extra indestructible the kudzu uses all three.
