Hello, A vine started to grow in my backyard/field and I really like its looks and I'm considering trying to transplant it to other areas. I was wondering if anyone might be able to identify it so I could learn more about it before spreading it. It grows all through the trees in the area and drops shoots down to the ground that appear to root. I haven't seen in make any form of flowers but I'm not out in the area where it's growing often.

I live in San Antonio and it was not intentionally planted. Lived here about 15 years and didn't see it till last year but it may have been there a while unnoticed. I've asked a few local people and they weren't sure what it was.

Looks like common honeysuckle vine - beware - though attractive the vines will strangle your trees, better grown on a fence or arbor or some other structure

Whatever it is, it already looks pretty aggressive - I'd be wary of putting it anywhere you don't want it to completely take over and strangle everything else out.

I agree, it does look like the aggressive and invasive Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica)
