Greg, I live in NC, and I am not sure I have seen one of these yet. It is pretty though. I will have to keep my eye out for it. Is the plant very tall? I see thorns on it, it looks like.

That should be a link to an early warning map. It may be pretty but it is unstoppable once established with anything short of drastic measures.

If you remember your folktale about brer rabbit and brer Fox…Brer Rabbit could not go through this stuff once established!

I sincerely hope you do not find any.

Best regard,
Greg
