If you pop it into a search engine you will find lots of articles about Russian vine. It is often problematic in urban areas due to its spread and growth speed. It grows incredibly quickly and is often used for screening buildings or garden eyesores but when left to its own devices it can invade neighbouring gardens causing problems.
In our garden the vine is growing on a trellis which screens our fuel tank and behind our garage. The climber isn't a problem here as we live in the countryside and have no immediate neighbours.
Mr F has given the plant a very ruthless cutting back each year and so far it has been easy to manage.
This is how it looks at the moment.
Despite its faults Russian vine is very pretty and providing you have the room and motivation to cut it back, it really serves its purpose and more importantly, the bees adore it. So for now it is here to stay.
