Thunbergia gregorii

Believe it or not, somewhere under that monster Thunbergia gregorii is a 10′ x 20′ x 8′ chaninlink enclosure designed to keep the ducks safe from coyotes at night.

10 years ago I planted two one gallon pots holding vines that might have been 1 foot tall at the time. I never water these things and yet they’ve grow like swamp monsters, up and around the cage to swallow every portion entirely. If it weren’t for frequent hacking around the doorway, I’m pretty sure it would have sealed it shut a long time ago.
