    it looks like wisteria

      Yes, does look like wisteria to me also. It is a beautiful vine. Under the right conditions makes beautiful flowers but can be very invasive and needs constant trimming.

    Not without a better picture. There are so many vines that have that basic shape, it would be impoissible to give an accurate answer. Post a better pic and some information about where the vine is growing, how you may have tried to remove it, whether or not it flowers, etc.

    Jeff is right. There are a number of vines with leaves like that but it does resemble a trumpet vine. Does it have red/orange flowers shaped like a trumpet? Had those in our yard as a kid, and mama tried to kill them by chopping down to the roots and nothing worked. They grow wild in our area. I see them for sale as vines but I never would plant them! They will take over your yard, and almost impossible to get rid of.

    almost looks like vinca minor,,, does it have purple/blue 5 petaled flowers? Great stuff if you're looking for a plant that can take a lot...

    Really do need a decent picture ... but be re-assured it's not vinca minor (myrtle, periwinkle)

  • Brenda Brenda on Sep 11, 2017
    I agree with Abrd, looks like a wisteria. But really need a better picture.

  • Brenda Brenda on Sep 11, 2017
    If it is a wisteria, ya better build a strong trellis. Those vines will get up to two inches in diameter. I know, we have one. I am getting too old to climb up and trim up. As beautuful as they are in the spring with lavender colored blooms, we will have to get rid of it.

    Looks like trumpet vine

  • Susanne Susanne on Sep 11, 2017
    I am thinking the same. Need a better picture. Might be an akebia vine. Looks sort of like mine, but hard to see in that picture.

    It doesn't look like my Wisteria, but it does look like my Trumpet Vine.

  • Abrd Abrd on Sep 12, 2017
    Thanks for all your responses. I am sure it is not trumpet vine nor wisteria nor akebia. Because i know/have all of these vines. Hence this particular vine attracted my attention. Its leaves are glossy. Vine is vigorous and healthy. No flowers on the vine.
    By leaf shape, it is very close to Vinca, but Vinca is a ground cover as i know. Not sure if there is a Vinca variety that is a vine.

    I am voting for trumpet, the stalks look thicker than wisteria stalks

  • Gem25636624 Gem25636624 on Sep 13, 2017
    or is it really a vine or my fav (NOT!) - nandina?

  • Mona Mona on Sep 15, 2017
    I'm almost sure it's a wisteria.
