Should I be concerned about neighbor’s Morning Glory vine?
Neighbor has a morning glory on his fence that has worked its way over to my side. It’s a really a beautiful vine. I know they can spread and be invasive, but I don’t have any experience with them? Should I be concerned and nuke it, or just enjoy it and keep it pruned?

Depends on what you like. At my house in BR I planted a white one along my side fence. It would grow 15-20 feet from center and be full of flowers. I told my neighbor, who I was good friends with, to hit it with a weed eater if he didn’t like it or if it was a problem I’d remove it. They loved it so it stayed. I’d occasionally have to spray some babies that popped up in my yard but no big deal

It’s not freeze hardy, so it won’t last thru the winter.

But it will drop a million seeds and spread all over.

I actually was hopeful this would happen. Last year I had 2 or 3 healthy sections of wild morning glory vine growing on my fence. I was hoping it would come back this year with more, and better distributed along the fence, however, it looks horribly pathetic this year. Like 2 stray vines that I'll probably just pull next time I cut grass. I'm not sure if the weather this year had anything to do with it or what.

Seeds rotted because of wet winter weather. I have never heard of anyone having issues growing wild morning glory.
