Default Beware of this vine!

I should have said that this is a 2 year old picture of the vine
covering a 7 or 8 foot high multiflora rose bush, whose springtime aroma
was very pleasing.
You can see what's left of the white roses trying to peek out from under
the vine at the bottom left and right of the picture.


Yikes! Any plant able to overwhelm a multiflora rose -- an invasive, though
attractive, thug itself -- is truly a menace!
