Johnson Ferry Intermittent Trail Closures

Kudzu, (Pueraria montana) is a deciduous twining, trailing, mat-forming, woody leguminous vine 35 to 100 feet long that forms dense infestations along forest and roadside edges. Leaves have three leaflets with variable lobes. Slender tight clusters of white and violet pealike flowers appear in midsummer to yield clusters of dangling flat pods in fall. Pods fall unopened, and seed are variable in viability across the region. Colonizes by vines rooting at nodes, and spread by wind-, animal-, and water-dispersed seeds. Large semiwoody tuberous roots with no vine buds reach depths of three to 16 feet, while the target of control on older plants is a knot- or ball-like root crown on top of the soil surface where vines and roots originate.
