    At first glance, I'd guess at Ostrich Ferns, known as Fiddleheads in early spring. They are pretty common around here, but I don't know about VA.

    I believe that's Mimosa. If it is, it has nice flowers but is weak and can become invasive.

    Mimosas can become VERY invasive. I've spent three years trying to get rid of them here. Thousands of sprouts, rapid growth, and very hard to kill the stumps. It's a 25 foot tall weed, in my opinion (nearly as bad as Kudzu)...

    It’s growing out of a stump I thought was dead. Assuming it’s part of the tree. Maybe an Acacia?

    I don't know of anything worse than Kudzu..... (although it sounds like bamboo is pretty close)



    Mimosa huh?

    Damn. That is what that is.

    No bamboo here either. I mostly leave the honeysuckle alone. I like it as long as it stays on the fence. I jump on any poison ivy I see. Didn't used to have any kudzu but it's sneaking over the back fence from the next property over which is all wooded. It's a losing battle when you don't have access to the other sides of your fence.

    My wife really likes honeysuckle and I don't mind it if it is controlled. I have a lot of it that I am clearing from the woods where it has choked out small saplings and trees.

    We are slowly winning the battle with the poison ivy.

    Like you the Kudzu is coming from a neighbors property and fortunately it had only made a small encroachment into our property.

    I clear cut the fence line where it is. The current (new) owner of the neighboring property is actively helping to control it.

    My wife likes the Mimosa tree due to it's colorful bloom. We don't have that many of them, but thanks to this thread I have a better understanding of its capability to spread. It also explains why several have died.

    What are you using on poison ivy? I've tried a couple of things, but not much luck.
