Mile a minute??
I planted this about 3 years ago , but have forgotten what it is? Could it be the `dreaded mile a minute`?! It started showing itself last year with some beautiful red/gold leaves and again this year. I have attached some photos in the hope of an ID. The leaves really are a beautiful colour. It is on a dividing fence between our house and next door.

Virginia creeper, Parthenocissus quinquefolia? Stunning at this time of year.

That sounds promising, Is this less invasive that `mile a minute ?

Hi, I agree, and yes it's a lot less invasive than Fallopia baldschuanica, or it's former name, Poligonum baldschuanicum, which can grow up to 30 ft in a season, hence the name ''mile a minute'', Derek
