Hello Smiling this is my first post here. I was wondering if you guys could ID this weed that started growing out of a pot on my back porch. It has a red stem, grows very fast. Thank You!

It looks like pepper vine which is very invasive here.

I planted a sunflower and some cilantro in the same pot. Would the peppervine be okay sharing the space?

Ryanh300,

I don't grow any of those so I'm not sure about growing all three in the same container. It would probably depend on the root structure of each plant, as to whether one plant would take over the pot and not leave enough room for the others to remain and grow strong.

It is a bit aggressive and you might not want it in a garden, but it's a native so it can't be an invasive.

Hi & welcome! I'm in S AL too, in Opp.

It may not be much this year, but a mature pepper vine specimen can be ginormous. If you have a mature tree for it to climb, might be a keeper, a lovely vine in the right spot. Birds love the berries/seeds they make, but flowers probably won't "wow" you. Not something most gardeners would let loose in a small garden.

The sunflower is a true annual that will have a short life anyway, destined to pass on after it has produced some seeds. (Hope it has time to do its' thing before Jack Frost makes his first appearance this year.) Not familiar with growing Cilantro, but love the kick it gives salsa.

Good luck with whatever you decide!

I've been through Opp plenty of times! My roommate and his father owned a scrap yard in Samson, AL right by Opp.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! I am developing a green thumb so I will be posting and learning from this awesome forum!! Thumbs up

Blinking Rolling on the floor laughing I'm scratching my head because I always thought that the screen name 'purpleinopp' was short for something, like in Opelika (y'all know I can't spell, right? Sad ). Foolish me. *Blush* The town of Opp has a rich history. Thumbs up

Thanks, Greene. I can't understand how there's no longer a use for railroads in the area, but the track that went from Andalusia to Geneva (and wherever, east/west of those points,) was pulled up in 2013. The pic at the link is also a bit out of date. The brick header that said "Danley Plaza" was blown down in a storm this summer. The yellow building is now a very good Mexican restaurant with very cool new neon lights. Ryan, if you're passing through & are hungry, I recommend it, Hook's BBQ is a close 2nd.
