Can someone identify this vine?

it is fast growing, somewhat invasive, but easy to pull up. Left on its own, I'm afraid it will eventually overtake my yard. The flower heads are about an inch to 1 1/4"in diameter and contain many small blue flowers.. I never had it until I had a bird feeder in this area of the garden and thought it might have come from some of the seed that was dropped., though it doesn't grow in other areas where I have bird feeders.

  • I've never seen this befor so I looked it up. They are closely related to morning glories and are perennial. However they would not be hardy for our winters. Only hardy to 55-61 F. How cold do you get?

    if only it would die out over the winter, but it has come back the last 2 years and is now spreading into another bed. Thank you Rhonda for the correct identification. If my winter birds will eat the seed I will consider not trying to eradicate it. Thanks to both of you for replying.

    It is a self seeding annual. It cluster of blossoms gives 6-8 seeds. It is related to the morning glory. You have to pull them before they blossom to get rid of them and pick the clusters before seed falls...lots of work.

    Could it be Bee Balm? I have some too. Pretty. I have left them hoping they will attract bees.
