Hi Bruce,

The vines that you see eating up the south is kudzu.
I looked it up on wiki for you:

Kudzu ( /ˈkʊdzuː/; Pueraria lobata, and possibly other species in the genus Pueraria; see taxonomy section below) is a plant in the genus Pueraria in the pea family Fabaceae, subfamily Faboideae. It is a climbing, coiling, and trailing vine native to southern Japan and southeast China. Its name comes from the Japanese name for the plant, Kuzu (クズ or 葛?).

Kudzu is called gé gēn (Chinese: 葛根) in China, where it is cooked and eaten,[1] but has earned such nicknames in the US Southeast as the "foot-a-night vine", "mile-a-minute vine",[1] and "the vine that ate the South".[2] due to its out-of-control growth in the Southeastern United States. In Vietnam, it is called sắn dây.[3]
