    Be sure to pull this up by the roots, and continue to check the roots, to be sure you got it all, not just the top of it. They do love bushes, for they will attempt to strangle the bush, and once they start, they will just progress to the next bush. Check them very often., especially around the base, of the bush. Best wishes, Judy.

    It's everywhere...
    Coming up 50 yards away from where it started last year....crawling underground I would guess.....it's horrible.
    I had to give up on my garden and do container gardening.
    Thank you for your reply.

    Difficult to fully see in the picture, but if it vines and eventually has white flowers, it is a type of wild Morning Glory. Brought to you by our feathered friends, and grossly invasive and destructive. I am speaking from experience-still fighting a 3 year battle. It took up space in an established flower garden, so I am limited in what I can use without damaging my other plants. So it's "pull and see"...
    Best of Luck if this is your culprit!!!
