Hi all, first post and I'm hoping you can help me. I've owned my home for 3 yrs and have a perennial that I can't identify (my flower freak mom can't even help). Reason I need to know the plant, is because last year about 1/2 way thru the summer my perennials died off. The leaves seemed to develop spots and quickly dies after. Anyway here is the perennial. It will eventually have a stalk of small purple flowers (roughly 5-6" tall) at the top of each stem. Now, I have one more. This vine is taking over my front landscaping. It's making it's way thru my bushes and has started to climb into the perennial shown above. I need to identify it so I can get something to kill it off. Image below. If someone could help me, especially with the vine, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
