Where can you buy kudzu vine?

First off, why would you want to? Its a weed and you can't kill it. It just keeps growing.. Not a very wise thing to do.

Where can you buy kudzu vine?
If you come and remove all my Japanese Knotweed I will personally plant the kudzu for you.
Reply:You actually WANT Kudzu? Here in the south it is known to have covered up homes overnight after a good rain! ;) Look for a nursery in the south east.
Reply:Kudzu vines are considered very invasive in several states. Kudzu vines have over taken many of the natural plants that grow in our forests. These vines strangle trees and once they go to seed they travel miles via birds and spread like wildfire. Unless you have plans to grow it inside your home they will never have the right conditions to flower and set seed.

To answer your question they are illegal to sell in several states due to the above reasons. I have no idea where you are located. My best suggestion is to call your local county extension and they will steer you in the right direction.
Reply:That vine is not good for the environment. It will snuff out a pine tree 100 feet tall. Looks like a mess.
Reply:I can't imagine why you would want to get kudzu. It overgrows other plants, including trees, and takes over. It was a foreign plant and was brought over here and planted. As often happens with plants or animals relocated to a place where they are not native, and have no controls in nature, it began to take over. Although it is pretty, it is considered a noxious weed and probably should not be started in a new place.

  1. I'd love to get a plant that could grow so quickly, because I have a herd of sheep that have limited feed on my property. I have read that Kudzu has great nutrient properties for grazing animals, and with the rate that sheep breed, this may be a solution to the limited feed.
