Taking over my garden can anyone tell me what it is?


  • I need help to get rid of this rapid growing plant that is choking and killing off other plants in my borders. Can you please tell me what it is and ultimately how I can get rid of it? Thanks

    It looks like Muehlenbeckia complexa. Pull it out including roots?

    They look like Muehlenbeckia Astonii/Complexa, Maidenhair Vine. They are not really hardy so maybe you have a really sheltered spot that they thrive in. They shouldn’t be too hard to remove.
  • It has grown over another plant so would I have to remove that too? 
  • Start by pruning/cutting it back and see what you find.
