Mile-A-Minute Vine

mile-a-minute vine

Mile-A-Minute is deserving of its common name and its reputation as "the Kudzu of the north"—a single vine can grow up to 6 inches per day.

Mile-a-minute can cause major ecological problems:

  • overgrows and outcompetes other plants, shading out native vegetation
  • forms dense mats interfering with forest regeneration and seedling establishment
  • grows up to 6 inches per day in ideal conditions
