This vine like plant is traveling up my ornamental cherry tree. Where it came from I don’t know and there are no others in my garden. Should I leave it on or remove it?




It looks like Euonymus fortunei, Loosestrife, and it looks like it has been at work for a couple of years already. It might have snuck over from a plant yards away, either by a long, inconspicuous runner--probably low-crawling under shrubs--or by a root sprout from a damaged roots.
