Kudzu Overload!

Kudzu was imported to the American South from Asia in the early 20th century to serve as erosion control.

And it worked too well! Kudzu grows over enerything in sight!

Kudzu can cover an entire house, and that's a house in the middle of this photo, you can barely see the bottom of the doors:

Kudzu goes grows so fast you can hear it grow, and Kudzu can cover a parked car in just a few days.

When you hear Kudzu growing, it makes the same crackling sound that bamboo makes when growing.

Kudzu grow-up poles, making sculptures, like this Kudzu sheperd:

Fortunately, Kudzu is high water content and horses and livestock find it absolutely delicious!

They prefer eating Kudzu over Bermuda hay, their favorite . . .
