    I found an abandoned lot yesterday that has this vine popping up in several areas.
    The house and any original lawn are gone, but a few of the previous garden plants are still there.
    Any idea what this vine is? It seems to be growing in several spots, ranging in size from a few leaves to a few feet.

    Thank you, Ron.
    Looking at other pictures of Campsis, these are obviously young ones.

    Do you think that if some of these (suckers?) are rooted , that they would survive transplanting now (late June)?

    @ponderoni, you noted in your first posting that these are "popping up in several areas". Is a plant that will do that something you want in your garden?

    Wendy,
    Thank you for The Warning (sounds like the name of a suspense thriller).
    I think I know what you mean, having had to curtail bamboo spread for decades.
    Could it be any worse than having our neighbours who propagate Morning Glory on our mutual border?

    I'm thinking on a lattice, controlled with occasional root-hacking or placed in a container.

    BTW, thank you for a detailed and concise how-to on inserting photos and attachments.
