Blue jade on the attack. It's amazingly aggressive -- anything within 3 or 4 feet of the main growth is vulnerable. It's after the chairs, the kukui, the coffee, and the clove trees. On the positive side, it's put out two new sprays of blossoms on the zen garden side. I have to cut it all back, which I'm going to hate doing, because it's such a strong, vibrant vine. But by now -- about a year after we planted it -- there's just too much of it.
