Weeds?, Or viable plants?

Asked May 22, 2019, 3:26 PM EDT

This fast growing Vine showed up in my garden this year, I'm afraid it could be invasive It has a very Woody stem , and It worries me since there is so much of it just this year. Is it a weed or a nice Ground cover I don't have much Sun so if it Will not overrun the vinca and Lirope I will leave it be but I'm fearful it may take over. Do you know what it is and what I should do about it?

The vine in your first photo is called winter creeper. It is a very invasive plant and we recommend removing it by pulling/digging it out. Here is information about the plant and how to control it. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/winter-creeper-euonymus
