I would love to have this growing over the front of my lavendar/purple porch, but I'm afraid. Will this become like bindweed? Will it join the ivy, black locusts, wild plum, trumpet vine, and blackberries that cover the estimated 16 cubic yard pile of trash, numerous appliances, and three "buildings," left by those who came before me, on at least an acre of our three, in taunting me? Can I control it? Tell me, experts, should I just forget I ever saw this, and perhaps stencil the vine on one of the posts?

4paws, forget you ever saw it. It will become just what you envision. Somebody, tell me I am wrong about this plant in
zone 8.

I don't imagine there's a truly effective way to keep them from setting seed, especially if I have to get out a ladder to reach them.
