Mile-a-Minute Vine

Mile-a-Minute vine (MAM), Persicaria perfoliata, is an aggressive, invasive Asian annual vine. It is capable of completely covering all vegetation up to a height of 20 feet. Plants grow at a rate of up to 6 inches a day and produce up to 2000 seeds/year. Seeds remain viable for at least 6 years, probably longer. MAM blankets the landscape, out-competing other plants, replacing native vegetation, and damaging habitat for native animals. It is a serious threat to biodiversity. In Litchfield County, mile-a-minute vine has been found in Bridgewater, New Milford, Roxbury, Torrington, and Woodbury. Please familiarize yourself with this threat so that you may be able to spot it and report it! The following links should help.
