Ruby Tuesday - Trumpet Vine

The common Trumpet Vine thrives in rough conditions.  It makes a hardy plant for a fence, a wall, or an arbor.  But it can grow too rank and be difficult to control.  Even a rose can be a weed if it grows in a corn field.

Wonderful Ruby Tuesday capture. But you're right, these things can get out of control in a hurry.
